Went with our seven year old. A wonderful place to taste the amazing seafood of Tasmania. The oysters, salmon and kids crumbed fish was excellent.

Best oysters we've had anywhere - not cheap but worth every cent. This place has rightly the best ratings & reputation for seafood. Good service & good surroundings. Nice wine list. Quite popular so try to book first. Highly recommend.

This is one of the best seafood restaurants in town! It’s smart casual atmosphere and gorgeous location compliments the beautifully prepared seafood. Staff are warm and friendly, the wine list reasonable. You can’t go past Hallam’s for a special seafood dining treat!
