The presentation, quality, style, and variation of food and the friendly attentive knowledgeable staff made this evening memorable. Cost was acceptable for such a good experience.

“Very Impressed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

My mum , sister and I had lunch at The Stunned Mullet to celebrate mum's birthday. The food was delicious we had the mixed oysters, mum and my sister had the blue eyed trevalla and I the pork belly with seared scallops. While the oysters were absolutely magnificent and the pork belly with scallops succulent, those who had the fish thought it a little overcooked.

We had the Cassegrain Verdelho the perfect accompaniment. I have to say the service was excellent, our waiter was James who was very knowledgeable about both the food and wine and kept us well hydrated and entertained during our visit.

I would certainly return here, a great dining experience.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

My boyfriend and I dined here for a special occasion and could not have picked a better spot. Service was consistent and so lovely, the staff found time for everyone even on a busy night. The food was lovely, I had the pork belly and the duck and both were far superior to anything I've had before. Highly recommended!

“Love it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

My husband and I had a lovely meal here about two weeks ago. We started off with some Billecart champagne to celebrate our new home. The price was very reasonable in comparison to restaurants of the same level in Sydney. We were pleased to see that some of the menu had changed but a few of the staples remained the same. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu and her descriptions of the specials and the fish were making my mouth water.

We shared the local kingfish sashimi which was outstanding! the fish was fresh, a beautiful shaved fennel salad and some smoky leek all dressed with a lovely blood lime vinaigrette.
I had the duck for my main which didn't disappoint and never does. My husband went for the toothfish and was just as the waitress had described. We were very happy to see that they offered half bottles on their wine list as I wanted red and my husband likes white wine. We told the waiter what we were eating and our price range and he matched our wines accordingly. I found that all the staff were very professional and friendly without being too "in your face".

Our waitress helped us with the desserts by describing each one in detail. We shared the creme caramel and it was delicious.
They definitely deserve the Chef's Hat.

“Once again an Absolute Delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014 via mobile

The toothfish is a must. Still hard to pass up on the prawns and the Sumac Dessert is a great way to finish. The wine list is still hard to beat- great value as well.
