It was a nice fresh seafood platter, excellent customer service and great Darling harbour views. Only negative thing I would say is the platters seem to be smaller in portion but price remains the same.More

The place was rather packed and the rave reviews got us excited. Terrible service as the staff was too busy and could barely remember our orders and needed repeated reminders. Overpriced for the quality and amount of food served. Guess the location by the water...More
