Got the seafood platter from here and boy was the platter full! The platter has everything - from battered fish, calamari, oysters to lobster, prawns, chips, etc. Took me a while to finish it but it was worth it.

Nice place to try some Crocodile meat as a starter. All main dishes are very large but you can order smaller portion.

Have just really enjoyed an evening here with Tim & co. A short walk around the block from our hotel, a fantastic place to have an excellent meal in an informal setting. Reasonably priced steak and seafood restaurant with a great menu. I had the garlic prawns, hubby a t bone steak. Both absolutely delicious. Staff are fantastic especially Tim... More

The restaurant looks great inside and out. But unfortunately my meal was poor. I ordered a wagyu steak, I requested it to be medium cook and it was well done. Very chewy. It was very frustrating. Great magic trick by Tim though

I was here on a recommendation from a friend and I won't be back. The staff were friendly enough but i really object to being called "sweety" and "darl" by people i don't know. The food came quick enough but it wasn't anything special. It was just average food that I could have made myself at home. It wasn't overly... More

Gorgeous dinner with crocodile schnitzel, never tasted before. The dish was enough for two people, actually. Amazing experience, friendly, fast and welcoming staff, always smiling and asking if everything is all right. Of course it is!!!!! No WIFI, and that is a good idea, because you actually see people talking to each other The best dinner i've had in Australia... More

Went with a group of people. Ended up waiting nearly 45 minutes just for the food to arrive. Whilst it was a busy night and I appreciate wait times are higher, 45 minutes still seems a bit excessive. Perhaps they were short staffed? Either way, would of been nice to have been advised of extended wait times. Great food portion... More

Tim's surf and turf options were very tasty and the place was packed for a Tuesday night. Staff were very efficient however and coped brilliantly with the big crowd. Only minus is the wine list is very limited and of average quality.
