Very comfortable little restaurant hidden behind a Tudor style frontage... Very impressive service, polite courteous and prompt! Food consisted of succulent oysters and scallops followed by an array of seafood delights... Seafood heaven with an atmosphere of ambience and comfort! Business or romance this place is a must...........

Noted as the "best seafood in warrnambool " the food is overpriced and quality in mediocre at best. A disappointing experience. Avoid the precooked risotto, and the seafood spring rolls filled with potatoe stuffing , and dried chicken breast , Italian style? The duck confit was devoid of flavour. Most dishes were served on a bed of lettuce, but even... More

I went to this restaurant on Good Friday for dinner and was disappointed firstly with large bones found in the fish risotto and secondly the way the staff and owner treated us when we queried the problem. The owner who is also the the Chef fogged it off as if it wasn't a big deal. An apology and a refund... More

I do remember talking to you about the fact that their were 4 very fine pin bones in the flathead pieces in your seafood risotto, and I clearly remember apologisinjg to you saying that it shouldn't of happened, but the fact you ate your entire meal makes me wonder if you were just out for a free meal, especially after...

Most magnificent, fresh, beautifully presented food. An absolute taste sensation. My tongue is still tingling from the succulent fresh taste of the sea. Polite, courteous staff. Would recommend any seafood lover to tempt their taste buds. Beautiful food. Lovely atmosphere. Great customer service. Try it, you'll love it just as much as I did. P.s. Going back next week

OMG it is divine!! What a great location, friendly efficient staff, comfortable and relaxing. The food is absolutely sensational, fresh, flavoursome and perfectly cooked. The Oysters were absolutely beautiful. I thoroughly recommend a 3 course dinner so you can enjoy a variety of dishes on offer. The dessert is well worth a sample- absolutely to "die" for- heaven in each... More

Service was good, we had the seafood platter for 2 which was small and overpriced ($149) compared to other places we have eaten at, calamari was over cooked and not enough for 2 but the fish was amazing I don't normally eat fish but thought I'd give it a go and was so glad I did wish I had just...

im sorry if you felt the dinner for two was overpriced as local crayfish is hovering around the $100 per kg mark at the moment which is something out of our control, but it does make that particular dish very expensive, again I apologise. More

We had two seafood platters (very reasonably priced, fresh and tasty). Our little ones had mushroom risotto, sausages and vegetables and calamari and vegetables. The services was friendly and efficient. The waitress and the chef went out of the way to develop a meal to delight one of our children who was feeling a little off colour (tired, unwell). We...

sorry Sharon but again the price of the dinner for two is dictated by the current price of local crayfish. I agree the if you can forgo the crayfish, our Breakers Seafood Platter ( for 1 ) is a much more reasonable priced dish at $33.50 More

This is Warrnambool’s best kept secret. Other people who have gone there on my recommendation have loved it as well and have now gone there multiple times now. It’s a small cosy unassuming place and I really like it. I like the “feel” of the place and feel comfortable there. The eye fillet was just perfect as were the vegetables.... More
