We ordered a dozen kilpatrick oysters and when they come out they were TINY! The ones I had were lucky to be the size of half a five cent piece! The bacon was yucky pre-cut squares from the supermarket and was used to cover the minimal amount of oyster there was! When it was delivered to the table, the juice was all over the plate rather than being in the oysters. Very very disappointed - we won't ever go back!

We ate, and ate and ate. the oysters were amazing... we just had to keep having more. The service was quick, and the beer cold. Realy enjoyable experience.

We visited this bar on a Saturday at around 6pm and are really glad we did. The place had a great atmosphere and the wines were reasonably priced. We shared a prawn calamari and shoe string chip platter which was delicious. The staff were friendly and it has a fantastic location over looking the harbour.

Casual relaxing place for a drink and a chat, (sometimes live music) with wonderful juicy Coffins Bay oysters.

I don't ever not eat a dozen oysters if I order them but I could have made them in the boot of my car better than the mixed dozen I got today. Wine, service n location were good but suppose to be an oyster bar so focus on the oysters!!
