“Dinner for two”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

Had a wander around Apollo Bay and this looked like the one for us. Excellent selection of seafood on offer and good attentive service too. Well worth a visit.

“Not so great a place to eat”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

We went there on strong recommendations from the place that we stayed at and were looking forward to a good seafood meal. well the vista was the only good thing about the place. The seafood liguine was the only nice dish, the snapper was dry and the trout wasn't trout (it tasted like salmon and looked like salmon). I wouldn't go there again and wouldn't recommend it to any seafood lovers. I have eaten loads of seafood and been to far better restaurants (equally as expensive) The service we had for the cost was terrible.

“Great Food in a Lovely setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

We booked for dinner here recently on a recommendation from the local fish market and we loved it. If you like your fish you'll love this, fresh produce beautifully cooked and presented with friendly if slightly haphazard service but don't let that put you off.
The restaurant is close to the beach in Apollo Bay and was almost fully booked on the night we were there, all in all a very enjoyable evening.
