RST is consistently a great night out. Service staff treat you like you are a special old friend, the quality of seafood is always outstanding and they have a great wine list. A reliable restaurant for a special night.

Our group used vouchers, so the cost was very reasonable. Wonderful food, as usual! The fish is so fresh, beautifully cooked and delicious. The fish should be served with fries which would be my only criticism. Hate having to order sides!
Thanks for your feedback and review. We're glad to hear that there were elements of your visit you enjoyed and that you are a regular return guest and diner. We appreciate your continued support and the dining deal vouchers as you mentioned are incredibly great value. Not everyone loves chips (crazy to think right??) and we've in past had them as the automatic side choice, but there was a lot of wastage. We like many other restaurants - and similar to many good steakhouses, have it so you can create your own adventure of sorts with your main and then the sides. This allows you and everyone else to customise and enjoy the experience to your liking, paying for what you need/ want too. We're sorry something annoys you like this, but we hope you'll see that this is both smart business and also what the majority of our customers enjoy. We hope you'll see it to forgive us and we really look forward to welcoming you back again soon :) Thanks

I love this place and keep coming back. Excellent seafood at a reasonable price. Very good and welcoming service. Subdued ambience in which conversation is possible. Had local mussels and whiting from Portland. This place knows what it's doing!

About RST Seafood Restaurant (Richmond Seafood Tavern)

A triple treat Previously named Richmond Seafood Restaurant, RST has had a name change since it moved to North Fitzroy in 2011, however, its famous seafood specialities are even better than ever. Specialising in Melbourne's finest, fresh seafood, RST Seafood Restaurant is constantly evolving to bring exciting new flavours to Melbourne's seafood lovers. With an intimate restaurant, a premium function space and a chic bar and garden area that’s become known for its racing events and themed days this place is perfect for all occasions. Chef Danny Cecchi serves up what’s arguably the best seafood in Melbourne with freshly shucked oysters, a creamy clam chowder and plenty of non-fishy options (prawns, scallops, crabs, Moreton Bay bugs, mussels and crayfish). You’re sure to see him roaming around the restaurant – always smiling, he likes to personally greet his customers. Plus he's also been working on a fabulous new menu that is definitely worth checking out. It’s always busy and bustling so bookings are essential for the full RST experience. Best dish: Chilli prawns
