We started outside with plastic sides down but then had a smoker at table next to us so moved inside (not used to that in NZ) I recommend... More

We spent a couple of hours here, warm as toast in the outdoor undercover area. The views to the marina were fantastic & the passing parade of people interesting. The food was great, the oysters in particular were delicious - we had the Kilpatrick & the mornay. The prawns & spring rolls were tasty & the salt & pepper calamari... More

There are three seating areas: indoors, plus two separate outdoor options (both of which are well heated and have those clear blinds to enclose against the weather), This place seems... More

The best Gluten free salt and pepper squid along with a glass of Oyster bay Sav blanc.. Yum. Lovely view over the Marina, and if outside, looking towards Glenelg North. Staff are always friendly, the beers cold, outdoor heating, so suitable for colder days!
