The most amazing fresh oysters and wine to match. Great price. We stopped here for lunch after walking to wineglass bay lookout. So pleased we didn't drive past this gem. The freshest oysters. Totally recommend.

Just purchased one dozen oysters . They were ok but unfortunately the person who shucked them rinsed them in fresh water. They are much better left with the salty water taste in my opinion.
I also purchased a kilo of mussels in the shell. These were advertised as fresh but they were not. After steaming open, many of them smelled off. There were also too many broken shelled mussels in the bag. I probably threw out %20 of them.
I live in Queensland and have a better strike rate with mussels brought from a supermarket then I did today buying them from a mussel farm.
It was a shame as everything looked really good.

Stopped in for a late lunch. Had the seafood chowder and half shell scallops. We were so impressed we grabbed some oysters, prawns and sashimi salmon to take away and enjoy for dinner. The freshest of fresh seafood served with a smile. This place is a must if you love your seafood.

The Food here is amazing. We had the Seafood Chowder, Salmon and Brie Oysters and some ginger beer. There was a slight wait for our food, as it was very busy and only an hour to closing.
The Chowder was the best we’ve ever had! We highly recommend Freycinet Marine Farm!

Great tours and great fish, seafood & chips. Had lunch here & it was excellent, easy to see why it is rated #13 in the Lonely Planet "Best Eats in the World". Well worth a visit.

The tour is a must. Friendly knowledgeable tour guide Declan was a great guy. Excellent experience. Finished off with hands down the best fish and chips we’ve ever had. Absolutely brilliant. Well done guys. The greatest compliment we can pay is by recommending anyone who reads this visits you. Thanks again ❤️✌️

Don’t miss this. It’s very good. Donning the waterproof waders is fun and then it’s into the shallow water in the river to see how the oysters grow and are harvested. All quite fascinating. Then back to shore to learn how best to shuck oysters (very useful lesson in the best technique from our guide Declan) and then eat them with a squeeze of lemon or lime or a fantastic vinegarette. And some great freshly cooked mussels and a glass of local Riesling. Perfect!

As fresh as it gets. Cooked in front of you. Fast friendly service. Great value. Try the cooked crayfish or chowder for a Coles Bay / Freycinet experience.

Great place to stop for lunch and sample the local seafood. We didnt do the tour, just dropped in to sample the local fare. After a morning of hiking, we stopped at the Marine Farm for lunch. It was so nice and potentially my favourite lunch spot on our holiday! Fresh local seafood, lots to choose from, all washed down with local wines or Tasmanian ales. The dining area is nothing too special, timber tables and chairs, spaced well apart, clearly marked instructions for cleaning up after yourself when you finish your meal and there were plenty of tables to sit at on the day that we visited. Not enough complementary words to describe the seafood chowder, it was amazing! It was a cold winters day for our visit which probably was a blessing as on a warm sunny day, Im pretty sure we would have stayed the whole day!

WE STOPPED AT THE MARINE FARM PRIMARILY TO GET SOME TAKE AWAY SEAFOOD. We got a dozen mixed oysters and a cooked cray which we took home for dinner that night. Was delightful. You can also eat in which quite a few were doing.
