Enjoyed a nice lunch here today. The grilled fish "Fish of the Day" was really nice with salad and chips. Service was good. My first visit here with friends. Nice views of the sea.

Alot of the menu items were not available which I thought was odd, the food we were able was not very fresh and presentation wasnt very appealing. I googled best seafood brisbsne that... More

The menu is grossly overpriced for what's on offer, I would highly recommend going anywhere in the surrounding area for a more appropriate price-quantity ratio

This is an exceptional fine dining restaurant. It has much to offer - the seafood is why you go, and would go back - it is fresh, local and above all seasonal. The service is engaging without being over the top. However, all of this comes at a price - highly recommend for special occasions!

All of the staff from start to finish were very polite and friendly. Most of the food was terrific, but the beef bougignon wasn't the greatest. The calamari was the best I've ever had and the prawn and lobster soup was absolutely amazing. The venue itself looks quite dated and needs work done to it but it's in such a... More

We have been here several times before and have always throughly enjoyed our meals there, but we went back for lunch today we were very disappointed. I booked over a week ago and asked for a window table, but were shown to a table in the middle. The service was slow and disorganised. No water was offered, they had run... More

After slow service in finding our booking & table, we were not surprised to wait a further 20 mins for a drinks waiter to bring our only drinks. This seafood smorgasbord lacked introduction, identification and cohesion. No finger bowls nor crab crackers created further delay, especially when we had to describe what a crab cutter is. The defrosted prawns and... More

We decided to go to Wilsons for my partners birthday, have been here a few times before and haven't been too disappointed. The night started off a bit dodgy as before we left home we got a phone call from Wilsons to we advise us to take our own alcohol as they no longer have a liquor license, then when... More

Service was only soso when we were eventually offered any. Half an hour before offered water. Didn't have the wine as per wine list. Cold seafood platters (2) came without trout as per menu. Platters were more fruit platters than seafood platters. Sides of chips & veggies ok. potifferoles tiniest we'd ever seen. cheese platter- a miniscule slither of blue... More
