I remember visiting the sea life centre as a kid when it really was the sea life centre aquarium.
it was enjoyable to return to this place which still basically looks the same with some extensions.

this place always looks busy and although you can walk around Bicheno and never see a soul the sea life centre always seems full and you often have to book to get in. must be something to do with the excellent food and views.[and staff service too]

Apart from the food the gift shop is rather nice and there are some photos of Bicheno's history and lot more detail available if you get a chance to talk to the local staff members who have been there for many years.

I simply don't understand why people complain about the décor..it looked terrific..it must be an age thing with the younger folk who prefer those awful soulless glass, marble and tile structures having withdrawals at seeing real wood and varnish rather than grey paint and stark open chasms of buildings that so many architects seem to dazzle us into boredom with these days

All meals were fantastic, we had oysters, fish of the day, squid and scallops, all amazing. Don't let the decor put you off, its quite tacky but it didn't bother me.

I have never understood the cravings people have for lobster and my husband would always say that it's because I have never tried a real one. After trying the freshly cooked crayfish at this restaurant, I now understand....it was succulent, sweet and tender. I now get it. Fresh cray, caught that afternoon is totally different to frozen and shipped in.
The decor and atmosphere here is friendly and relaxed and the view from the full glass front to the ocean is easy to enjoy.

We had a great evening with lovely seafood and beautiful Tasmanian wine. The view just made the evening even more special.

I found the food to be terrible, the 'seafood platter' salmon out of a tin, frozen prawns and battered fish that tasted like it came from a take away! Disappointed with the meal, although the view is fantastic and staff are friendly.
