    Seafood was exceptional and at a very affordable price. We ordered 4 entrees, 2 mains and 1 dessert and was only out of pocket of around $120. All meals were delicious and the service was amazing. Staff was friendly and helpful.

    I want to love RST as it is local and we go there frequently BUT $5 per oyster, $10 per salad and expensive fish for what you get is making it less attractive - sorry. The opinion of the people coming in on vouchers (lots of them!) would be interesting.

    Arrived in the dark... from outside didn't look very inviting. However once inside the restaurant and atmosphere was lovely. Good attentive waiting staff and good food.

    I feel the entrance to the building could be a little more inviting-water feature/pots some greenery Also have a infuser to enhance the experience

    Fish was nice and fresh as you would expect, and well cooked, but paying $35 for a main without any sides, a bit high!! and its just grilled fish no sauces, no toppings!!

    This neighbourhood gem is a reliable place to go for a fresh seafood fix. We do that regularly!

About the restaurant

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.
