Small, packed restaurant is surely one of Nelson Bay’s top picks. Great, friendly service and fantastic, fresh seafood. Portions were perfect and the wine selection was great.

My wife and I recently had dinner here whilst visiting Nelsons Bay.
It is a very popular restaurant and so I would recommend that you book and not just turn up.
We were warmly welcomed to the restaurant and looked after really well by the staff.
The menu is comprehensive so much to choose from.
For mains, we had Pork Belly and also the Lamb blackstrap. Both were excellent.
If, like me, you are into desserts, then you must try the white chocolate spring rolls. They were a surprise and very tasty.
Highly recommend this restaurant for a special dinner.

Don't walk past this restaurant. Make a booking and don't miss one of the best meals you'll have when you visit Nelson Bay.

The chef and the owner know exactly what they are doing here. The menu is seasonal and interesting with dishes that won't disappoint. The service is great - no ditzy wait staff here!

Can't wait to go back!

We were dubious to try this restaurant as so many restaurants in the area weren’t very good. It was absolutely lovely. We didn’t have a booking, but the staff were exceptionally helpful. We spoke to the owner who was there and he gave us a free glass of 2012 cab sav following my order of another glass of wine. The wait staff were so attentive and following a previous night of wait staff that were clearly protected species, it was refreshing to have someone clear the plate as soon as I was finished. It was all very professional, and I felt I was really taken care of.

With regard to the food, the duck spring rolls, dumplings and prawn hot pot were delicious. The food could not be faulted. The service, combined with the quality of the food, made this restaurant truly worth coming back for. Thank you so much for looking after us so well.
