There are several outlets at The Omphoy if you fancy something to eat. In the mornings, breakfast is taken at The Terrace, most of which is actually indoors, although there is a large deck outside which overlooks the ocean. At each end of the room are blue banquettes while in the middle of the room are beautifully laid tables with bamboo lattice work on their sides. The spread of food is pretty impressive with a full continental offering as well as several hot stations and an omelette station. The quality of products is good and there is plenty of choice while the staff is extremely friendly and efficient. The only complaint we would have is that there was a little too much 'Is everything ok for you sir/madam?'. The staff should be confident enough that they provide a solid service, because they do! And in any case, there are plenty of members of the team to ask should one want for something.
The Terrace is also the venue for lunch should you be at the hotel. If you are not feeling like a full meal then there is a selection of cheese and charcuterie, however, should you desire something a little more substantial then there are a range of seafood-based or other salads and main courses such as seafood linguine, chicken paillard and cold poached salmon.
In the evening guests have a couple of options. The first of these is to head to the O-Bar just in front of The Terrace space. Here, the charming bar girls serve cocktails, beers, wines and more as well as items from the tapas menu including raw fish, bite size portions such as veal meatballs or asparagus tempura or even caviar.
The second option, and very much the flagship eatery at The Omphoy, is Michael Wurster's Malcolm's. The space itself is largely free of décor so as guests can give their full attention to what lays beyond the floor-to-ceiling windows - the Atlantic in all its glory. On the fare side, in addition to the tapas menu from the bar downstairs, diners can delight in such appetisers as pea soup, foie gras or burrata with lobster, aubergine and basil. In terms of mains, examples of what you might expect to find on the menu are: wild bass accompanied with edamame, sea beans, mussels, shrimp, clams, cress, lime and shellfish pistou; lamb loin with artichoke, shallot, baby carrot, corn pudding and a Barolo sauce; or a veal loin which comes with aubergine, caponata, parmesan polenta, roasted tomato and a brandy sauce. For the full Malcolm's experience opt for one of the two tasting menus - five courses for $60 or 9 courses for $105. There is an impressively extensive wine list with hundreds of bottles at all price points.
