Had Dinner there with family. The first thing I noticed was the open Display of the Seafood and the rustic appearance which was even more underlined by the rather charming outdoor eating area. Th basic idea is a bit different from the 'normal' restaurant'. Choose your Fish - more variety than in most other restaurants I've ever visited - and... More

A wonderful quirky restaurant in the equally quirky St Kilda. Short but interesting wine list works well with the food. I went for the Singapore Claypot, a bed of rice, a lovely, subtlety spiced Laksa style sauce and mountains of mussels, prawns and fish. Perfectly cooked and utterly delicious.

I love this restaurant!! The only (slightly) minus is you can't book. But in saying that they usually get you seated quickly and the bar is great for a pre dinner drink!! Recommend the chilli crab but the Claypots are brilliant. Suggest sharing😉😉😉

Quirky restaurant with a great atmosphere, and even live music in the main bar. All about seafood, any way you want it! Very generous portions. Great service too. Must book on weekends

We loved this restaurant! Excellent service and outstanding seafood. Standouts were the giant garlic prawns, and a fantastic "Singapore Claypot". Will be dreaming about this fabulous meal for a long time.
