My husband asked it the prawns for the meal he wanted to order were "local" (Australian), & was told they were not, (they were imported from Asia) so he decided to have the fish & chip meal & asked what the fish was in the 'fish and chip meal', to be told it was Basa. This is an imported freshwater fish from Asia, & is catfish from the rivers (or canals) which we NEVER buy.He ended up choosing not to eat fish (and this is a seafood restaurant!). The Manager came out to discuss our displeasure/diaappointment with the menu, & told us that 80% of the fish in the restaurant is 'local'. They also have a fresh fish counter & a takeaway fish shop attached to their restaurant, so we were very disappointed, and feel that this is not good enough for a fish restaurant, which we beleive should have 100% local fish. If they choose to have 20% imported fish from Asia on their menu, they need to state the origin of the fish on their menu.

Seafood was great, perfectly cooked. The Atmosphere is a bit disjointed. Nice restaurant and good for the kids too.

Been a few times now. The service is excellent. We went prior to going to a show and the staff were very prompt with their service and considerate to our needing to 'eat and run'! The food each time has always been well presented, very tasty, generous helpings and promptly served. Good value for money!
