Place was full despite being a Wednesday. Can recommend the rice/labneh/dukkah salad, mussels and arancini nice but porkbelly with Asian salad was disappointing. Overall, friendly service and a nice spot on the water.

Staff were very helpful with vegan options and food allergy issues. I had the best salt n pepper squid I've tasted in a long time. Also had Seared Swordfish which was more than seared but... More

We took the 11.00 am ferry to the Tea Gardens and had a great lunch for 15 people. The weather was beautiful which made the boat trip over and back very relaxing. Lunch was very nice, a little expensive but nice food. It was a Saturday so the place was busy and a little crowded. Lovely setting by the water.... More
