Lovely owners. Pressed porked and vegetables were mouth watering. Salt/pepper calamari was great. Didn't have any wine but noted wasn't expensive. Would recommend Blackies to all my friends.

The food is always sensational, the service unbeatable with the atmosphere and view being incredible. I had the salmon and the flavors were just divine. Will definitely be back!

Have been looking for a decent lobster meal for quite a while. Booked early in week for Valentines weekend and pre-arranged the lobster. Surprised by how well restaurant was appointed and located. Staff were very welcoming and helpful from time of booking to the end of an enjoyable evening. Meal was excellent and will definitely be returning

Used to love this place but my last visit will definitely be my last. Went with a friend and ordered two entre's and a main to share as we weren't too hungry and was annoyed when we were told sharing was not 'allowed'. When the main meal arrived the waitress took all the cutlery and plates off the table other... More

We went for a birthday dinner and couldn't fault it. The entrees were excellent, we loved the fresh local oysters and the camembert. The main meals were large, filling and delicious. I had the duck and it was perfect! The wait staff were attentive and the owners were lovely. My only regret was I couldn't fit desert in as well!... More

The out look was beautiful, shame about the SLOW wait on our meal.. Considering there was only 2 of us, it could have been a lot quicker. The deco is very outdated needs a ram up. Very slow night all round, such a shame in a top location

We visited the restaurant 12 months earlier and the service and food made us wan to go back this trip with a table of 10 (twice the number this time). There were 2 members of our group who had special dietary requirements and the chef came to the table and advised how he could cook meals a different way to... More
