We had a blast at this restaurant. The cocktails were fun and tasty. The seafood was to die for and the atmosphere is great. The decor is cool and busy. Could not fault this place at all, if I could I'd be going back as much as possible.

The old sea themed setting is very dated. But also very funny. The food is outstanding and the service fast and friendly. So much better than the trendy expensive garasite that is meant to be hi arts best. The oysters were very fresh as was the fish of the day the trumpeter. The servings were very large. The seafood is... More

Great atmosphere with all things themed nautical. Friendly and attentive staff - just at the right level, not too fussy. Food was excellent. There were four of us - our meals arrived at the same time, seafood was fresh and well presented. The place was packed! Speaks for itself.

Nautical theme a little over the top but it works. Meals were at the higher end of pricing without being special. Prawns were not fresh. Fish stew was very nice. Would not rush back.

What a complete surprise when we walked into the restaurant it was amazing. It really felt like you were on an old sailing boat and the ornaments were everywhere. It had little nooks and crannies. The most impressive thing was though that the quality of the seafood and the service by our waitress made it a truly enjoyable evening. Keep... More

We had oysters kilpatrick for entree and were suitably impressed. They were delicious and fresh, so it was a great start to the night. The main courses were also impressive. The salt and pepper squid was tender, tasteful and was presented thoughtfully. The port starboard platter was great value for money, with a great range of fresh seafood. Highly recommend... More

Located in an idealic location in the heart of Hobart, this restaurant offers good food. However we were disappointed with the quality of service and in particular the waitress product knowledge and approach to costumer service perspective when we asked her questions. I've order the fresh Salmon served on a hot rock, accompanied with steamed rice served on a printed... More
