My friend and i decided to give this a go as the menu looked awesome. They were busy so they said we could eat at the bar so we said ok not knowing that we would not be aloud to order from the menu that was outside!!! The menu was very limited. The oysters starter was good but our steak mains were terrible. $30 for a 200g sirlion steak that was overcooked and with a few pieces of lettuce. we had to pay $9 for a bowl of fries!!! Not once did someone come up to us and ask how our meals were even when we paid the bill!!! The biggest shock was the $11 we got charged for a bottle of corona!!!

The food is amazing...so much choice and so yummy!!! We were seated at the front near the river a fantastic spot. Service was dismal, we had to always ask for drinks, menu etc, but sometimes that's what you get fantastic food and crap service. Would I go back??? NO

My Husband first time in Melbourne, it looked like a lovely Restaurant from the outside ! Poor lighting we had to use our mobile phones to see the menu. Started ordering our food and realized that our meal was going to cost a lot of money for very little food, we went ahead with order our first course came out $18 each for the smallest amount of food quickly cancelled out order and requested the bill. Our 1st course and 2 drinks cost $55

Just e very strange feature: the toilets are black: the walls, the floor and the bowl, and the light is dim. They look very clean just because you cant' see a thing.

great selection of seafood - it is expensive, but you pay for quality, service and location. Don't go expecting a massive platter for 2 at $70. It is not that kind of place.

The desserts are amazing too! if you are prepared to treat yourself head down here, i have been three times and I must admit, i went when it first opened and the service was slow but they were amuch better the other two times i went within the last 2 years.
