Service was excellent- waiters were prompt and very polite. Our table saw a seafood laksa which was delicious (although could have used a kick of spice), vegetarian pasta dish and the macadamia crusted fish which I noticed no complaints. A bit pricey but you get what you pay for and it was a nice evening.

We walked past Barnaby Bills which was packed to capacity and found Splash just next door with only a few customers. The food was amazing, especially the spicy salt and pepper squid. We also got a barramundi meal from the specials board which was to die for! Service was friendly and efficient. Would definitely go back again!

Great wild caught seafood. The owner is a fisherman and this is always a good sign. Very good service also.

I was in search of seafood. I asked some locals and they suggested I try Splash in preference to another seafood place on the Esplanade. I was seated at one of the front tables right on the footpath so was able to people watch the passing parade. The restaurant is quite brightly lit so if you are looking for a... More

Nice seafood, good service and nice location. But, serve size wasn't generous. Was nice to site outside, it was relatively easy to get a table at this end of the walk. The menu options were adequate and the actual seafood was nice and well cooked, just bit small. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. The preparation of the order was... More

This is a rather nice restaurant just a little distance from the brasher part of the 'Strip'. The seafood was top quality as was the wine, atmosphere and service. Price maybe a tad expensive.

Great variety on the menu, even catered well for children. Service was fast and friendly, staff were nice. Food was delicious and generous serving size. Atmosphere was nice and the restuarant was in a great location, straight across from the Esplanade.

As a single diner I was treated to friendly service with the wait staff ensuring I was comfortable in the area I selected. Their service was attentive and friendly without being intrusive. The meal was a modern take on traditional fish and chips, well cooked great presentation.

Splash was recommended to us by a local so we thought we would give it a go. No reservations but good timing saw us seated at a table outside. Entrees were generous: prawn spring rolls, tapas plate, and oysters all very good. Mains included hot and cold seafood plates, prawn choo chee curry and barramundi with lemon butter sauce. Everyone... More

Our evening at Splash didn't get off to the best of starts as we called at the restaurant 75 minutes before eating to book a table. We asked for one outside and were even asked to specify an area which we did so. The waitress said that a table would be reserved when one became free. We returned to Splash... More
