Comments from our table were all positive about the food, in fact 2 people said the mussells in wine and garlic were the best they'd ever had - high praise from a couple of 'foodies' .The wine list is very good but only Australian wines on offer. The atmosphere has a good vibe and the waiter was fabulous, perhaps he was the owner, anyway,he knew his menu. The waitresses however...personally, we don't like being called Doll or Darling and being 'touched' it's all way too familiar, certainly don't find it friendly at all. Apart from that it still deserves the excellent rating I've given it.

What a great restaurant, I went there with my other half for my birthday. We ordered the seafood platter and it was so delicious and so much food we couldnt eat it all. If you order this platter dont order any entree's as this will be enough. The staff were so tentative and lovely and always knew when to come over if we required a drink. I recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys fine quality seafood.
