“Oysters”
Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

I love oysters. And Barilla bay has some really good tasting ones. They are cheaper compared to those found in Sydney's fish market. It's great value.

I have not been to the restaurant, so cannot comment on the food.

The oysters are shucked and sold in boxes. I'd prefer it shucked on the spot. ;(

“Wonderful dining experience”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Barilla Bay caters for both seafood lovers, oysters their speciality, and also for those who prefer something different.
Loved their dips selection and their bad boy fries, but the smokehouse salmon was to die for:)

“Overrated”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

Overrated... Lease 65 oysters is much better & value.

I came here bcz it's such a famous spot in every traveling guide, but disappointed. The oysters r ok, but not the best. On the way down to Hobart, we passed St. Helen, & accidentally swing by Lease 65 oyster. me & my girlfriend both missed 65 so much after we tried the barilla bay & regret that we should have ate 3 more dozen before we head to Hobart.

“Wedding!”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

My son was married in the Gazebo and had the Reception upstairs. Its a lovely venue with a beautiful outlook. I just wish the smokers had to go downstairs and were not allowed to use the upstairs balcony. The smell came inside every time the door opened!

“all about oysters”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Very close to the airport. We ordered the 30-oyster platter, the natural ones were best. The oysters were very fresh. We also ordered mussels which were nice. Only realized afterwards that we could have just had oysters downstairs instead of at the restaurant. Not cheap but it's an experience.
