Location was nice and the food was ok but service was slow. I had the thai coconut chilli chicken which had lots of coconut milk sauce but only a dusting of paprika. Wasn't spicy at all. My partner had the rib fillet which was ok....More

Even though in the middle of the tourist strip this restaurant does a great job with all sorts of seafood, from beautiful tender calamari to the best reef fish and prawns. Clearly a hit with the Japanese visitors, who know their seafood well. Even on...More

I ordered the spaghetti vongole, and my husband had the trout. There were some nice flavours in both dishes. The pasta was al dente, and they were generous with the vongole. Despite the extra small size. Service was well schooled. Will definitely come back here...More

This was our second time at this restaurant, and I was disappointed. The special lunch menu was not worth it, even though it's 29.90 for 3 courses. Everything we ordered (and there were 8 of us) was quite average. From seafood chowder to scallops (tiny),...More

This place came recommended and was crowded out. Usually that means great food but we neglected to factor in that 90% of the folk were tourists and not locals returning. Our Tasmanian Pinot Gris had fruit flavours and was clean and dry. Unfortunately the reef...More

We loved the food so much we went twice. On the first occasion we had the grilled seafood platter of prawns and bugs plus a wild barramundi. The prawns and bugs were really grilled just moist and juicy as you could taste their sweetness. However...More
