We had high expectations and we were looking forward to our meal. Immediately the decor, atmosphere and ambience of the place lured us in. It is fantastic and there is lots to look at.

Was looking forward to a great seafood dinner and what we got made the local fish n chip shop look like a five star dining experience. Poor welcoming, poorly presented scallops & prawns. Mains uninspiring. Won't return.

This was our first time at this restaurant and we are very glad that we made the choice. The seafood was very honest and very fresh. The service is excellent. Be sure to book if you want to go there as they were turning people away by the dozens the Sunday night we were there.

I had grilled fish, and my wife also. Others in the group had seafood platters, and complained nearly all the seafood batter was overcooked. Serve sizes very good, service excellent and friendly

Went with a family of 4 on a 7 day Tasmania trip. Delicious food in particular the Fish Stew. Very interesting decorations. Great service. Decided to go for round 2 before the end of the 7 day trip. Bookings recommended as they are packed!

This restaurant has a very interesting decoration and theme of a ship. Extremely cosy with great food. Love everything especially their seafood chowder. Portion of the meal is average.
