The food was really delicious and the serving sizes are generous. We shared a sashimi entree and a mixed seafood grill for main. We however, had our own desserts. The staff were friendly. Our only complaint has to do with the constant slamming of the main door. Every time someone went in or out the door slammed. We were sitting... More

Had a light lunch with my partner. We shared a plate of Oysters Kilpatrick and I had the Curried Seafood Chowder in addition. While our lunch wasn't extensive it was very tasty. The oysters particularly were very nice with allot of flavour. The chowder was very nice, while being a bit unusual given it was curried. We went there on... More

Went here on the postings of Tripadvisor website. could not agree more about the food, service and extensive menu. We had a seafood platter to share between 3 and found that it was more than enough.Great value for $125 both licensed and BYO wine with a corkage. Staff very attentive. Will return

Great fish dish for mains. Tracey was friendly and very hospitable, She accidentally spilt a drink but made certain we were well looked after! Only downside was the baklava which was too dry and crumbly.

Found this place on Tripadvisor. Good reviews. Off I go. Food was very good, very busy for a Thursday but the young waiter tried his best. Coffee took too long so I cancelled, paid my bill and left. 30 secs later noticed that I was charged for the coffee. Went straight back. The response from I think the person in... More

Four of us visited this busy restaurant near Salamanca Place. I have not been for well over a year, and was equally impressed this time around. We ordered different meals to get a good feel of the flavours on offer. I went for the chargrilled Pirates Bay Octopus, as an entree, with a side salad. The octopus was flawless, and... More

Recommended by lonely planet so off we went. Very good value lunchtime menu. Grilled fish burger the winner but the chowder and the salmon with potato and tenderstem very good too. Really cater for those needing a gluten free diet. Really excellent quality food and very a enjoyable lunch. Saw on menu too that it's BYO for $12 corkage

Staff=excellent Food=excellent Atmosphere=excellent We turned up quite late considering (8.45pm) and was seated and looked after. This place will be our go-to location for each visit to Hobart. They even had some great advice for eateries as well to Port Arthur.

A good place to go with a group for special occasions; moderately priced fabulous seafood- very fresh. Convivial modern atmosphere. Book in advance if you have a group. An upmarket place where smart stylish clothes make a difference, and would not be out of place! This is fine venue for a work function - big enough for a table of... More
