We went there with big expectations. We got 1/2 lobster ($48!!!), 12 natural oysters, 1 scallop served with a dinner roll and the total cost was up to $80!!! Is this a farm, for real? So, why is the price so touristy? so unnecessary. There's no charm at all in this place, location is in the middle of the field,... More

We didnt do any visit but come here for lunch. Its was highly recommend by our B&B owner, Ms karen. Seafood here is fresh and cheap. But they dont do Sashimi for Salmon. We order a oyster with Salmon slide combine pack . Its very tasty and unique.

Agree wholeheartedly with recent review by "tassiesteve" this was totally not what i was expecting to find. Why do they even call it a "Marine Farm"... I had pictured a place by the coast. It was very disappointing to be sitting in a fly infested shack, very hot, very unappealing surrounds and Japanese tour groups taking all the picnic tables... More

Guys this venue is a simple authenticity outlet for seafood. Good seafood at that. We live in Sydney and have a shack a Coles Bay and love this place. A trip to the East would not be complete without catching up at The Farm for crays, mussels, scallops and oysters! Today the crays were still warm after just being cooked.... More

I don’t know what I was quote expecting from this venue… I sort of expected a bit more infrastructure. The building isn’t more than a lean-to, with the eating area completely exposed to the elements. There were some undercover seating and some outdoors. The toilets were portaloos, adding to the fly-by-night feeling that one got as one arrived. The menu... More

These guys were doing a roaring trade when we visited for lunch. The salmon was really flavoursome and well cooked. This place is a rustic and honest kind of family business, self service, grab a table and then clear away your plates. Original and tasty. Can't ask for much else.

Plus:- 1) Plain and simple fresh seafood cooked in a plain and simple way 2) Reasonable prices 3) The salmon we had on that day was simply awesome though the scallops and oysters were not as fresh as we would like them to be 4) Crayfish is served cold while oysters are served raw or baked 5) The bun that...

Our family came with high expectations after reading all the reviews. But hey, were we disappointed with our meal. The crayfish at $80 was comparable in price to other restaurants in Tasmania. However all you got was just that - 1 whole crayfish with lemon wedges and nothing else. At other restaurants, for similar or cheaper prices, the crayfish came... More

Good morning sir, thank you for your review of our farm gate outlet, whew, what a bomb you just dropped!
