Went here as it was highly recommended. Unfortunately, we must have hit an off night. Salmon was over-cooked, service was spotty, and dinner was not what I expected. Table next to us had same experience. Dessert was good, however.

I had heard this was a good restaurant to eat at. I tried to book a table over Easter weekend. I was initially told there was no room. Never one to be put off, I pleaded a little and Garth, the manager, fitted me in. I certainly wasn't disappointed. The restaurant has that personal bistro feel, with a charming ambiance.... More

We arrived very late for our booking (flight delay) but the staff had saved our table. The service was prompt and friendly. We ordered from the specials board, delicious mussels in a cream, wine and basil sauce, and grilled fish. The sauce on the mussels was so good I was tempted to lick my plate! An excellent bottle of wine... More

The restaurant is at the far northwest corner of the Rocks, so a bit of a hike to get there. The waitstaff was friendly and efficient and the fish was excellent. All in all, a great experience and highly recommended.

We have been visiting this restaurant for the past couple of years and it offers great seafood selection for lunch and dinner. The service is very good and the wine selection especially the Geoff Merrell wines are very good but pricey. The quality is consistent

We enjoyed an excellent meal, with a friendly staff at this busy popular eatery. The coral trout was done to perfection. Obviously this out of the way restaurant has been discovered. You will need to make a reservation to get a table.

A bit out of the way , this restaurant is worth finding! It really is an authentic fish restaurant, small, nice atmosphere, with good service and, mostly, very good fish. While there is a menu, a large board is brought to the table with day's catch. We had various starters but the Moreton Bay Bug starter was a A$ 19.90... More

Friday night refer tigon for 4. Service was a bit slow, but the food was great. The crustation (sp) was tops! Good wine selection. Wife tried the filet and said it was the best ever. Orange ruffs special was very good. Nice last meal here in Sydney.
