Everyone was so helpful and understanding. Went with family to see a show at Regent Theatre and they made sure that we had a lovely meal and were on time to see the show! The food was great.

Certainly "top shelf" seafood specialty dining but we enjoyed our experience very much and plan to return when next in Melbourne. Staff were very friendly and the service very good.

We want to thank Adrian and team for a fabulous meal and service to match. Expect absolute quality and personal service. We will be back for the cray fish with prawns and Tassie salmon.

We had been here before, and were excited to visit again, however were disappointed. The serving sizes were terrible for the amount you were paying and the seafood wasn't spectacular. Poor value for money. Service was good.
