Garlic and herb bread (not made on site) was lovely - went all down hill from there. Scallops either under grill or heat lamp made the (mash? puree?) dried out on top, but underneath was mush from the (tomato salsa?), and the orange flavour added...was not at all nice.. plus poor quality seafood too. Not great but we had high hopes for main - barra. Just awful! Fish had been frozen and defrosted so was dry and tasteless, came with a strange sloppy sweetcorn cake, more of the tomato stuff from entree (did have a nice hit of chili in though), and beans or asparagus with fetta cheese on. Weird flavours, ill-conceived dish, and expensive even if reasonable quality which this clearly was not. So disappointing as this was supposed to be a special occasion but was totally ruined. If you also go in and find there's hardly any customers.. this is why! No locals = no to to be trusted.More

Service was excellent, menu interesting and wine list had good options both in price and variety. We ordered the lamb and the special of the day, mussels...wow! Lamb cooked to perfection, and the mussels were piled high in an amazing chilli and tomato sauce. Highly...recommend! We will be back to enjoy more hospitality and great food.More

Highly rated by many platforms, but sadly disappointing for the cost. Average flavours 1970s influenced creamed corn and mashed tomatoes, nice seafood. Left feeling underwhelmed.

My partner booked dinner here for our second anniversary and we had never been before and wow! We were blown away by how amazing Barbera our waitress was! So helpful bright and happy, she definitely made the night a great experience. The food was just...as amazing, we were both so satisfied and did not leave one piece of food behind on the plates! The portion sizes were perfect, amazing value for money! Thank you all for a lovely night.More

Lovely position on the water. Took my mother here for a Sunday lunch for her 85th Birthday. Very mediocre, entrees were ok, but the Sandcrab ravioli was very light on sandcrab filling and sauce was very ordinary with I think was a dollop of beetroot...relish in the centre, which was a strange accompaniment. At $41 for a main serve, I was expecting a better dish. The icecream in the Affogato was extremely icy, making me think it had been defrosted and refrozen and the Pannacotta had a very grainy mouth feel, maybe they used powdered gelatine instead of leaves. The young girl who served our table was very friendly and pleasant, but the food was very lacking, so I wouldn't try again.More

This restaurant occupies a gorgeous spot on the water at the Wharf. The menu of the day was good value and tasty. The waitress was friendly. The only criticism is the wine list (at least for the rosé wines which were not good at all.)

My partner and I went here for lunch during our holiday, the restaurant itself is quite nice however we were in the corner with no windows and it was incredibly hot and stuffy during our meal. Unfortunately the seafood was not fresh and not good...at all. The prawns were overcooked and rubbery and the fish was slimy and inedible. The wait staff was nice however it didnt make up for the average food which was quite on the expensive side.More

What a great meal - all done with a few unusual ingredients that made it extra special. The service was exceptionally good and loved chatting to our waitress from Chile. Next time we’ll ask for a window table so we can see more of the...water.More
