Fresh fish, superbly prepared. Plan to try out as much as I can in this visit. Convenient location if you are visiting University of Queensland. Recommend in particular grilled snapper and barramundi.

I have lived in the area for many years and this place has had more ups and downs than a toilet seat at a mixed party. Anyhow right now it is good. Have dined here once a week for a month or two now. It...More
