Had a lovely dinner here. The menu is updated daily with what's available so it's amazingly fresh. We were advised on what to order, starting with some oysters and king size prawns in garlic and chilli then moving on to grilled squid followed by a whole white fish. Everything was really tasty. The 2 later courses came with roasted potatoes... More

The menu is breathtaking in respect of the fish offered and presents a serious difficulty in making a choice if you are,like us, only able to make a single visit during your stay. Charming and efficient service with a brisk presentation of our orders which is by no means a common experience. Our party left only the bare bones of... More

Go there before 6 for the live band in the bar area. Then, at 6, move to dining area. We had couscous stew and flathead and king prawns as a starter. I can't recall the price but we loved it !

We had a seafood selection, all very good! The service is fast and the staff is friendly. The atmosphere is confortable. The wine list is good! It has piano music. It's just too crowded for the space they offer.

What a treat !!! The food was so good, that I went twice during my short stay in Melbourne. Menu changes daily, the food is very fresh and delicious. Sometimes one has to wait to be seated in the bar next door as this place is most of the times full. During the week might be better. Do not go... More

We were a family group of 8 including two children. We had a giant prawn each for starter (excellent) and then a cod and a John Dorey to share with 1 claypot. The menu looks expensive but the meals are for sharing so the total (food) cost was under 300 aud for the group. Service was good, but at times... More

My wife & I came here for dinner after the Grampian park trip. The seafoods were nice but we thought that they were undercooked. I didn't see any reviews on here that indicates similar experience. Both of us got sick for two days after the dinner. The seafoods were really nice.. we call it "cleansing"..

Been here many times - never had a disappointing meal. Need to arrive early or else have to wait. Out the back on a hot day is fabulous. Start with tapas - small items you choose at the servery. Dip in the warm pita. Order your main course also at the bar and you can see what you get or... More
