Seafood Dinner

We went on a Sunday evening and our meals were of adequate portions. The food was fresh and the fish was cooked to our requests. The service was unobtrusive but attentive throughout the meal. There are good views to the east over the bay, over Manly Marina, and to the west over the suburban houses... read more

After slow service in finding our booking & table, we were not surprised to wait a further 20 mins for a drinks waiter to bring our only drinks. This seafood smorgasbord lacked introduction, identification and cohesion. No finger bowls nor crab crackers created further delay, especially when we had to describe what a crab cutter is. The defrosted prawns and... More

We decided to go to Wilsons for my partners birthday, have been here a few times before and haven't been too disappointed. The night started off a bit dodgy as before we left home we got a phone call from Wilsons to we advise us to take our own alcohol as they no longer have a liquor license, then when... More

Platters were more fruit platters than seafood platters. Sides of chips & veggies ok. potifferoles tiniest we'd ever seen. cheese platter- a miniscule slither of blue... More

My husband and I went here for dinner on Saturday night. The food was amazing. I could not fault it. The salmon was absolutely delicious and honestly was the best salmon I have ever had. The serving sizes were huge and great value for money. The service was good and the waitstaff went out of their way to make sure... More

Situated on the Marina in Manly Harbour this seafood restaurant is ideally placed. While we were eating we were able to watch boats coming and going and a Sea Hawk enjoying a recently caught fish. Four of us went for lunch and started with a a seafood platter between us. There was a variety of fresh fish and shellfish that... More

Went here New Year's Day to be told they had no oysters. Not a huge thing but when I ordered the seafood platter for 2 which comes with oysters I asked what would be in their place and I got nothing. Not even an extra cold chip. The prawns were soggy, the bugs were tasteless and the service was slow.... More

Mid week lunch for 4 people. Entree ok, nothing special. Mains totally disappointing, Spaghetti marinara sauce very bland, half bug on the side was as dry as. Atlantic salmon good but over cooked. Fortunately my friend likes it that way so she was happy with it. The barramundi had no macadamia crust - just a sprinkling of crumbs that had... More

I asked before I booked a birthday lunch forMelbourne Cup day if they were having a Melbourne Cup luncheon. The gentleman I spoke with said yes. I advised I was not interested in a set menu, he advised there would be no problem ordering from the standard menu. We arrived & were given a complimentary glass of champagne. Immediately I... More
