“Will definitely go back”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

Four of us went for dinner on the 30/11/13, we all had entree's & mains. The food was absolutely delicious, good wine & service & the view was wonderful. It is a bit pricey but for those special occasions we will definetly go back.

“overrated and living off past glory”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

We had dinner there on a Monday night and the place is advertised as Adelaide's best seafood Restaurant. Unfortunately we could not share this view. We had one dish that was no better than any fish and chip meal and grilled whiting filets that were "poached" but certainly not grilled. The wine was also not worth the money spent. The Restaurant is super noisy and it's almost impossible to have a conversation. So what's good ? the view is magic.... We have eaten at Sammy's a few years back and we suspect that the Restaurant has been sold and the new owners live from the past glory....sorry, a poor rating for this one.

“The sea food at this restaurant was very poor”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

We arrived and it took so long to get a drink and then it took at least 30minutes to order our meals and when they took our order we only got one main.
When we finally got the food it was extremely bland and over price (lobster $140.00) I had the chowder and it was extremely bland and I didn't.even eat it and the owner did not offer any refund.
I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone who is a seafood lover as they would be very disappointed and the restaurant was dirty and the windows looked like they hadn't been cleaned ever so realty there was no view.

“Great Food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

We had high expectations and wern't disappointed, the seafood was very fresh and tasty. We expected higher prices due to the location and reputation, but didn't mind because the service and food was terrific. We also BYO'd which brought the price down.
