“Best seafood in Melbourne”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

Claypots used to be a regular for me but I hadn't been there for years until I met up with a couple of friends here for lunch yesterday. The menu was reassuringly much as I remembered it and the old, distressed railway carriage seats held together by red gaffer tape were still in the back section where we parked ourselves.

We started with a selection of meze plates to share; baked capsicum, eggplant, julienned carrot with sultanas, babaganouge, and of course the legendary grilled stingray. This was followed by the seafood platter - a pile of grilled king prawns, mussels and crab, all if which was absolutely delicious. The bill came to $230 which included the two bottles of Heresy red we polished off.

One of my friends described it as the "best seafood in Melbourne". And you know what? He's probably right.
