Food was good. Shellfish platters were large and delicious. Not cheap, but nothing in that area really is.

A friend recommended this restaurant and with a weekend at Nelson Bay a good seafood was a must. I was ready for a nice meal... Booked a table outside and all was going well until the food arrived. I ordered a seafood platter, which comes with a nice salad, a good size portion of fish of the day (king fish), but then 2 prawns and 2 scallops! Would rather have a smaller portion of fish and a more generous size seafood portion. It was ok, as we paid AUD 150 for four people, just my expections will be better managed if I ever go back.

Great for seafood but did not really try much else. Service was swift and friendly as we had a seafood platter but wanted things changed which was no issue.

Its a little pricey, but they do have a nice location at the marina which can count for that.

Portions were very small for the price. $140 for hubby and I to eat and both hungry when we left. Went next door for dessert and coffee. Only good thing.. Waitresses very good.
