“A little disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

After a day on the Wilderness Railway, we looked forward to some seafood for our dinner. We ordered ocean trout which wasn't too bad...but the meal was let down by the rather nasty crinkly chips. They were tasteless

“Delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

You can't go wrong with the seafood here. The fishermans basket is delicious, and the oysters fresh as you could wish. Top notch.

“Did not live up to expectation”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Was disappointed with the flathead in batter and chips: well more chips with a small amount of fish. The trout and salad was a much better choice. Overall overrated.

Wonder if there is a link to why the business has a for sale sign out the front... I'm sure not.

“GREAT pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013 via mobile

Quite possibly the best seafood pizza I have had in my life. An interesting variety of the freshest seafoods (incl. awesome plump prawns and ocean trout) light crusty dough, nice mix of herbs, not too much cheese.

One pizza is a good size for two people. Lovely location overlooking the harbour and Esplanade.

Quick service. BYO.

“Lives up to its reputation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Ate here once, a couple of weeks ago. Great seafood. Fresh, full of flavour, unpretentious. Good value, speedy service. Schwoch's certainly lived up to its TripAdvisor reputation.
