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! If I may I will attempt to highlight some of your comments to correct some of your misconceptions on our outlet. First and foremost; we are not, have never been and will never be a restaurant, it is a mistake... More

After reading all the raving reviews of this oyster farm, we came with great expectations. We had 2 dozens natural oysters, lemon steamed mussels, and garlic scallops. The whole experience was simply disappointing, even if we came without expectations. The oysters were no doubt fresh, but small and looked like they were under nourished. The steamed mussels were probably about... More

Great oysters at good price. We thought we could eat oysters overlooking the bay, which made us a little disappointed when we arrive. It can be quite busy and there for may not have enough seats available for you to enjoy your seafood without feeling rushed.

The outlet for the marine farm is located along the road to Freycinet National Park and the township of Coles Bay on the east coast of Tasmania. Our experience was a pleasant one as we drove through the gates we could see other patrons sitting on blue painted picnic tables enjoying seafood such as crays and oysters and drinking wine....

Great food and value. Oysters and Thai Mussels were wonderful. Just try to beat the rush if a bus load of tourists arrive though well worth the wait if you don't.

We dropped by around 4pm for a very late lunch and were warmly welcomed under the canopy attached to a demountable kitchen. The oysters and mussels are farmed there, so could not have been any fresher. $15 for a dozen oysters - perfect! The setting while basic with shared outdoor tables, is fun. Crushed scallop shells cover the ground and... More

Great fresh oysters do it a variety of ways . Casual outdoor tables to share had the kilpatrick, the oysters with Brie and salmon, the grilled salmon with ginger , scallops and mussels. Pretty much everything except abalone. All fresh , tasty and reasonably priced. They have local wines and beer by glass or bottle. Worth stopping
