Ordered lamb shoulder from the menu sounded unreal, disappointed with serving size maybe 6-7 bite size pieces of meat for 30 dollars.

Had a better steak at the million dollar view pub for lunch.

Probably one of the best pieces of fish I have ever eaten. Stated with oysters done 3 ways and followed it up with the swordfish. For a fine dining restaurant and wine list was well priced.

First impressions, the room is laid out in good taste with beautiful view down on to the wharf area. Service was calm and confident, food was well presented and tasty. The whole experience was fine dining at its best.

House grown vegetables and salad, local seafood and meat lovingly transformed by a very talented young team. This food would hold its own next to any great restaurant in Sydney or Melbourne. Simply stunning!!
