“Exquisite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2014

Make yourself a promise and book in for dinner. Don't worry about trying to see George the Groper but rather go for the cocktails then stay on for dinner as you will not be disappointed. The only problem was that I had a huge problem deciding what to order as I loved all on offer.

“Fresh and delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2014

We really went to town here. Impressed by the quality of the food and service. Most noticeable was that they were simultaneously serving fine dining and children's groups without fuss. Noise wasn't an issue either. There was food for all budgets. Very good.

“Great seafood and customer service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2014

Have been here a few times now over the years it's not fancy but the food and service is very much so. Great family atmosphere and the groper make it worth while going early to get a look if you lucky!

“We came back three times!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2014 via mobile

Great down to earth staff, and a great relaxing spot right on the harbour inlet. Top quality meals, but the standouts were the Sashimi plate, Sri Lankan fish curry, and Whole Fried Coral Trout. Still dreaming about that Coral Trout....... zzzzzzzzzz

Hi Matt,

Cheers for your three visits!
Imagine if you lived here...you'd have to either move in, work for us, sell us advertising, deliver us fish, or set up the new Customer Loyalty program ;)

There were 10 of us and all meals were fabulous. Everyone had entrees and there were mixes of seafoods & their specialty dishes on the night, I had their fish curry it was spectacular. Very reasonable prices for their dishes. Great atmosphere and staff were very attentative. Will definitely go back and highly recommend it.
