Really excellent seafood. The staff we’re knowledgeable about all the different oysters they had & the snapper pie was incredible.
Thank you!! The snapper pie and oysters are always a hit! Glad you loved them also!

This is an amazing restaurant and I have been back from time to time. The crab, fish pie and calamari are amazing. Wine list is also good value. For quality seafood, you cannot go past this wonderful Venue. And if you get a deal, this is perfect!!!
Thank you for your lovely review! We are so glad you had a great time and we hope to see you again soon.

The service is phenomenal, we were greeted with smiles, our water was always topped up, and we didn’t have to wait long for our meals. The food is delicious, especially the prawns and banana soufflé. The mixed leaf salad was as described, but probably not worth the $12... will be back for the great service and beautiful view
Thank you for your lovely words! We are so glad you had an amazing time! Hope to see you again soon.

Loved the extensive selection of oysters and the fish pie. The wine list is a bit limited in term of varietals. Service was attentive albeit slow once it was time to pay the bill ( seems to be a quirk with many restos in Sydney..).
Thank you for your review! We are glad you had a great time and we will definitely work on the wine list!
