“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

Absolutely amazing! We are always impressed when we go to Seafood Affair. It is our #1 choice for birthday dinners and anniversaries. Service is good, food is great. We take family and friends there and have never been disappointed. All impressed.

“Lovely Food - but the Service, Oh My God!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

The meals at the restaurant are very good and fresh, with beautifully served food. We enjoyed a range of fish, steak and chicken options. The service however was incredibly poor. The arrival at the restaurant was fine and a drinks menu provided. Some 20 minutes later I asked for a menu and that was provided. At that point the drinks order was taken and eventually some time later the drinks arrived.
The meal would have taken an hour to arrive and the bread rolls which usually fill a gap were requested three times with the offering being a heated hamburger bun. Salads were provided to the table and then one was retrieved and taken back to the kitchen. Three meals arrived and one was incorrect and arrived some time later after we had completed our meal.
The staff seemed to be distracted and did not return to upsell the menu offerings. Given the delay in the meal arriving we did not order desserts which was unfortunate as they looked delicious. It would appear that most tables suffered in the same way, however the restaurant did appear to be relatively full. Worth visiting if you have a whole evening to spare and possibly advisable not to visit on a weekend.

“Pretty Good but!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

Went along to this local seafood restaurant again and the experience was pretty good but there were a couple of issues that one should be aware of.

The service has a tendency to be slow when the restaurant is more than one third full.

We went on a Saturday night and the patronage was probably around 75% full and we were there for just under 2 hours for two courses.

The food is of a high standard if not a little pricey for some dishes but the seafood sauce is to die for.

We were a little surprised when we were served our bread rolls; they were actuall hamburger buns but they were fresh and hot.

Would we go back again? Yes we would but probably not on a weekend night.

“Disappointing! ”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014 via mobile

Arrived for 6pm booking, ignored by wait staff apparently a busy night. Not a welcoming feeling. Entree for 1 plus servings of garlic bread arrived 40 minutes later, then 1.5 hours later 4 out of 5 main meals arrive. One wasn't noticed on the order apparently. All meals ordered with chips and salad only 1 salad arrived, other 3 meals came with vegetables. The lovely waitress who took the meal orders read it back and all was good. Very disappointing.
