I would have easily given this 5 stars - unfortunately one of our meals did not get sent to the kitchen and when the food came out, one of us was left without dinner. That dish was then, though, offered for free! That is my ONLY gripe. Otherwise this is a must!

this is the worst meal I had in Sydney for my trip from Newcastle to hunter valley then Sydney . Prawn and fish was not fresh. Chef tried to hide using herd and other ingredients. I asked for their recommendations and signature dish. It is not cheap either. I will not return for even at quarter of the price.you are... More

Managed to squeeze a table for one on a Friday evening - pure luck as I turned up without a reservation. Staff were friendly and helpful, menu and specials were varied, and the fish (scallops, snapper) was fantastic. A short walk from the CBD and a little off the beaten track but well worth the effort: recommended.

A stand out but casual restaurant when it comes to seafoods. Amazing staff and great atmosphere. A must-visit for all.

Quite coincidently picked fish at the rocks. Had lobster, which requires booking as food is fresh daily. Accompanied by mussels, scallops and calamari. Quite tasteful. Loved the venue, you could feel soul of oldest suburb of sydney. Old boats in the frames cloudy evening and most importantly SHE said yes.

I love seafood, especially crustacean, so this restaurant, a short stride from my hotel, was a must. And I was not disappointed. I had the Crustacean Platter, with a bottle of chardonnay wine recommended by my server, and it really was a treat. It is not in the middle of the main tourist areas, but the fact that it was...

We stumbled on this unpretentious restaurant while exploring the neighbourhood. As we were hungry, we stopped to eat. Wow! What a surprise! We each ordered something different and it was all good. And I am not even a seafood lover (but I could become one after this). We found an excuse to return to Sydney and Australia . So so... More

The food is beyond amazing, and the staff obviously enjoy their job. Take the staff suggestion and go with the Barramundi, which is the restaurant classic.

The Marriott concierge claimed this was were the locals went. The early bird specials were just perfect for us with 3 courses and the wine for $45. The don't open until 6, so it's not really very early by American standards. We liked it SO much we went back the last night we were in town. I started with the... More

The meals here are excellent. Staff is condescending. They're staff is definitely geared to serving people they feel are going to drop big bucks. There's a very perceptible condescending attitude in the staff. But boy, I noticed how friendly and upbeat they were when a group came in and ordered from mineral water instead of tap and then purchased overpriced... More
