Had dinner here three times, would thoroughly recommend the grilled king prawn, best we have had, all the fish dishes are freshly caught, the portions are very generous. Very reasonably priced. The service is excellant. Great view over the harbour.

There is nothing flashy or pretentious about this restaurant, the focus is purely on good quality local produce. Setting is quite nice on the foreshore, good for people watching. We shared a seafood stew and lobster, was very tasty.
