So much fun here

You get the feeling that you are down under, this is an Aussie restaurant with all the little details and funny menu, such as, kangaroo meet and crocodile. Beautiful location and great staff. Would recommend to everyone.

One of the few restaurants East End that is so reliable. Welcoming, warm, accommodating. Lively, friendly. Chef Ron keeps the menu interesting, prices reasonable, service attentive... And kudos, he buys locally captured Pterois (lion fish, extremely invasive) to serve up in a variety of dishes. This husband and wife team work hard to make everything you see look effortless and...

We had been here before, when it was Portofino's, but WOW, are we happy with the change. The service is spot on, and the food is exotic and wonderful. Any dish with Lionfish is a dish to be tried. Delicate with plenty of flavor. We split the Chef's tasting menu and were so happy with every dish. Definitely not what... More

We were travelling with a large group and everyone loved their meal. We ate there twice, the host/chef couldn't be nicer. Try for a table on the beach its a great experience. And I loved to see lion fish on the menu, go chef Ron!!

There were 5 of us for dinner. We were seated right away. Service was very good. I had the Lion Fish Tacos. Delicious! Everyone had something different, and everyone enjoyed their meal. We loved watching the Frigates flying above the restaurant. We missed the feeding of the birds, but enjoyed watching them fly above is.

Tukka is very expensive and the food quality and service is not worth the price. All of our appetizers were of the deep fried fare and came our soggy instead of crisp. The sauces are your run of the mill grocery store sauces that you can buy at home. Tukka has a great view of the water, but it could... More

Went twice on our trip. Awesome views over the water and even some tables down in the sand if you get there early and ask for them. Kids loved feeding the frigate birds at 5:30. Great food and friendly staff. The menu seems to be different on the weekends...didn't figure all that out. Highly recommended!
