Welcomed and well seated by the friendly, bantering Justin, we were assisted with the menu, deciding on the signature Admiral's Platter, an excellent way to experience a range of seafood. Creatively presented, we enjoyed our dinner of seafood not usually available in Australia. Desserts were also enjoyable. It... More

Food was great but a little on the pricier side, definitely a special occasion type of dinner. The visit is worth it just for the service alone. The staff are friendly and courteous. Had a great time.

Awesome is the only word needed. All we had were 5 appetiser dishes at the bar and some beer and wine. Along with knowledgable staff and a pleasant atmosphere, it made for a great evening. The dishes were spectacular and ranged from scallops in bacon (plump and juicy) to a sublime dish of clams and mussels.

We loved this place so much we came back for a second meal. Our driver had recommended it to us. They have a really nice variety in their selection of food. We had great fish and chips and chowder. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely come back here again.
