    Great seafood, we had share plates. As always the food was delicious. Leave room for the chocolate raspberry fondant.

    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.

    RST Seafood Restaurant (Richmond Seafood Tavern)

    Thanks for your feedback and review. We're sorry to hear that you find our cuisines and food to be expensive for your budget and tastes. The price of seafood is dictated by the market price, and also seasonality and availability. We are also a business with costs and overheads, and in the grand scheme of things if you were to visit some other seafood restaurants the prices are far greater than ours. We work incredibly hard to ensure that the seafood we source and serve is of the highest quality, fresh and the best we can get our hands on. You too can purchase dining deal vouchers . We offer them via Cudo from time to time, as well as via our own website. You can find out about these by being a follower of ours on social media, as this is where we always announce when these deals will next be released. We hope you understand better from our perspective things, and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

    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

    RST Seafood Restaurant (Richmond Seafood Tavern)

    Hi Andrea, Thanks for your feedback and review. We appreciate your taking the time to provide us and others with some comments on your visit. We'll be sure to take them under advisement. In relation to the diffuser, while a great suggestion it's probably not really suited for a restaurant. Where dining is part with your eyes and also your other senses, having other scents which detract from the dining experience aren't favoured. We like our customers to take in the food and flavours when here. We hope to welcome you back soon, and thanks for your lovely suggestions.

    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!!

    RST Seafood Restaurant (Richmond Seafood Tavern)

    Thanks for your feedback an review. We're pleased to hear that you enjoyed dining with us, and we'll be sure to pass your comments onto our staff and team. Our menu is designed and created in such a way that you the diner have the ability to order and create the dish you'd like - paying for those elements. The produce we serve and source is of the highest quality, and we pride ourselves on that. There are some meals and items on the menu which are served in entirety, which takes the hassle out of having to design it/ pick your own adventure. While some venues do have salad a sauce or chips etc on the plate, it's usually something small / more of a garnish and we want our dishes to really sing and stand out. Should you elect to return to our restaurant, please speak to our staff and team, and they'll happily guide you thru the menu happily. Thank you for your comments and feedback which we appreciate and we look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Thanks

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.
