Good part: great location, outdoor seating, BYOB ($10 a person corkage). Our entrees were good, my husband order 6 oysters and they were fresh and tasty, I had the sashimi tuna which was very good and they came out very fast, for Australian service.
Bad part: my husband ordered the Fish, Scallop, & Prawn Pie, which the waitress failed to tell us takes an extra 25 minutes. It came out on top of the mash and there were three tiny pieces of some thing white and fishy inside. I ordered the Spaghetti Valle Vongaloe (spaghetti and clam sauce) which had spaghetti and the tiniest clams, still in the shell, at least I think there were clams because none of them were open! I had a bowl full of closed clam shells! There were three lonely ones that I was able to open and that was it. The waitress even put it down in front of me and said I could open the shells with my knife. Really? They were not even slit. I sent it back and asked the waitress to have the chef open the clams or take it off the bill. It came off the bill without even an apology. Then the bill came they over charged us $10 corkage. My advice,go some place else.
