Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had the seafood platter - rather expensive but well cooked and really nice. French fries and dipping sauces just right. Profiteroles are different with ice cream instead of cream and tasty delicious. Apple crumble excellent. Staff friendly. Was busy so glad we booked ahead.

Enjoyable Lunch. Very friendly service, sea food was very fresh, great ambience and very clean. The seafood pie was awesome. Plenty of seafood in the marinara (a little more sauce but that is just my preference). Would definitely come back.

Wow, what a great restaurant. Our concierge recommended it on our first night in Sydney and we went back twice more. The standard of cooking is excellent. The menu is varied and reasonably priced. The staff were welcoming and efficient. I just wish we could...transport the whole set up back to the UK!More

We picked up take aways last night and they were great. Perfectly cooked and a very generous serve. The staff where so friendly and chatted with us while we waited. Will definitely return to dine in soon. All the meals, and desserts looked enticing as...they went past us to customers.More

They accommodated us without a reservation. I would highly recommend a reservation based on how busy they were. I had the seafood pie and my wife had the seafood salad. Both were excellent. I would definitely dine here again. But next time I will make...a reservationMore

Eight of us dined at this excellent seafood restaurant on our last night in Sydney, after two amazing weeks in Australia. The entire meal was superb. I loved the calamari appetizer, delicious seafood pie, and the mouth-watering profiteroles dessert. We ate at many fine Australian...restaurants but this place was among the best.More

Located at the northern end of Kent Street this small restaurant has a lovely ambience with efficient service. We chose 2 entrees from the specials to share - these were a standout. Seafood spiders and grilled prawn and crab cakes. The mains - the seafood...pie may have presented better with maybe a slice of bread or potato on the plate but none-the-less was very tasty. The whole-baked de-boned barramundi stuffed with prawns was delicious. The dessert, a soft-centre chocolate pudding finished off the meal, along with a good coffee. The 1 hr 15 min time limit mentioned on the booking confirmation concerned us, we phoned the restaurant to cancel if this was all that was allowed, and were told we could extend - we were there for just over 2 hours, enjoying our bottle of wine and delicious food.More

What an amazing restaurant. My wife surprised me with dinner here for my 50th birthday. We were quickly seated in the windows which was a perfect spot. Food and drinks orders taken by the friendly waitress. The food was amazing. We shared the Moreton Bay...bugs ravioli and the special spring roll starter. Both delicious. We both chose the same main - deboned baked barramundi stuffed with prawns and vegetables. It was also delicious and 2 clean plates later we had smiles on our faces. To cap the night off the waitress brought out a complimentary crème brûlée with a happy birthday message on. A perfect dinner.More

Overall great dinner. Service was friendly and attentive. Great wine list. Restaurant is small but noise level is not loud, only minor complaint is it can get warm. We both had the chowder to start with and the branzino stuffed with prawns as the main....Chowder was rich with the seafood plentiful and perfectly cooked. Branzino was superb and the side of rice with red curry very good. Overall great experienceMore
