“Amazing fish curry!”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

What a find this place was and the sri lankan fish curry was the best meal of my 4 week honeymoon-I need to come back and have this again.

The curry was a special on the night but both me and my husband definately thought it should be on the everyday menu-lovely and fresh.

My husband had the seabass and again this was so tasty and fresh. Would definately recommend!

“Thank you Korneel for this recommendation”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

We trusted a colleague on this place and were not disappointed: the place was casual and convenient, right on the waterfront. They had a variety of fresh fish to select from, a wide range of wine to go with the food, and service was pleasant and easy going - just right for us.

“'A beautiful evening'”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

We were told how amazing this place was but forgot to book. We tried our luck one night at around 8:30 and were shocked to be given a table as it is always booked out. The service and food was of a high standard. It is a little pricy but worth it. Can't wait to go again!

“Excellent Fish”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

One of the best meals we had in Australia, I had the Emperor Fish and it was delicious, the portion sizes are very generous. The service was excellent. Very pleasant night out with an old friend.
