Fitou, Desa ParkCity Waterfront

When I first went to Desa ParkCity Waterfront one late evening, I checked out the restaurants there and Fitou was the first place I'd like to have my meal..
Reason? Looks like they had the nicest looking alfresco dining compared to the other restaurants.
And as if the heavens above was pulling my leg; it was pouring heavily when I finally decided to dine at Fitou. :(
This was how it looks like on a misty, rainy night..
Since it's a cold night, we started off with some soup to warm us..
The mushroom soup(RM16)..
Thick blend of chopped fresh mushrooms with a thread of cream. Most unfortunately they were heavy on the pepper; doused most of the flavour of the soup.
Confetti Seafood Chowder (RM18)
One word. Sour. My tolerance for sour stuff has always been low. And having this soup was rather hard to..erm..swallow. Even Dragon girl, who likes sour stuff said that this was way sour. Seafood sweetens it? Nah...
Fitou's Feta Cheese Salad..
Fresh lettuce topped with lots of pork belly, cheese shavings and a sliver of mid grade anchovy. We enjoyed the salad; sans the anchovy which was extremely salty and fishy (which dragon girl avoided like a plague).
Grilled Prawn Bacon tapas (RM18)..
We were expecting nicer presentation. Oh well. Simple grilled prawn wrapped with pork bacon and a dollop of BBQ-ish sauce. Quite tasty.
Spicy pork sausage (RM12)
Lived up to it's name, it's spicy alright. The bird's eye chilli added enough kick to an ordinary pork sausage.
Sauteed mushroom..
Served compressed in a small cup. Well, at first I thought it was small. After picking on the mushrooms for a while, it was quite generous actually :p. Again, too heavy on the pepper.
The manager's recommendation
Iberico Back Ribs (RM45)
For that price, we got a long rib and 2 measly short ones. A tad pricey me thinks. The rib were juicy with lovely charred sides; the sauce was not needed actually. El cerdo's iberico was nicer though.
The seafood paella for 2 (RM70)..
A generous amount of prawns, mussels, squids, pork sausages, and chicken. Alas, it was only an average dish- the rice was too wet, the sausages very salty and the chicken had the freezer taste.
The spaghetti meatballs (RM18)
Came with 5 rather large beef balls. The meatballs were very flavourful and well marinated; and rather moist. The pasta texture was ok, but the sauce was again extremely sour! So sour that we could not finish this. I believe it's the same base they used for the soup. :(
Oh, we skipped desserts as all looks horrendous (it was displayed in the wine room)
Overall, I find the food mediocre. The only reason I'll revisit would be for the nice ambiance, lovely place to chill with family and friends.
Fitou is located at Lot GF2, The Waterfront @ Park City, 5 Persiaran Resdien, Desa Park City, KL.

Hmm... what's up with the sour factor here? And yeah, I don't like imported anchovy as well... too salty and fishy to my liking.
