Less than I expected on this occasion. With it's prime wharf position and iconic location I anticipated something special in the arena amongst the best of Tasmania's seafood takeaway. Unpleasant oil taste, less than fresh lemon wedge, and the my crumbed scallops had a very...More

Best choice of the floating restaurants at the harbour. Quick, delicious and quality. The crumbed fish was delicious and far from the old heavy, soggy, battered usual.
