Come here for the location not for the small oysters. Right on the Holdfast Shores Marina and unfortunately the oysters were on the small side and not as if they had just been prepared. Would go for a drink but not the oysters.

I love oysters but one slightly off will ruin my whole night. The Oyster Bar is the only place in Australia I can guarantee perfect fresh Coffin Bay oysters every time. We ate outside overlooking the marina with the cheese and dip plate. Just perfect.

We always head for the Oyster Bar on the Marina at Glenelg, any time that we are in the area. The Coffin Bay Oysters are always succulent, and they offer them in so many interesting ways.
