This attractive restaurant is set on the edge of Strahan Harbour with a great view. The staff were very friendly and helpful, making everyone welcome. The food, particularly the fish and seafood was excellent and there was a wide selection of wines.

What sort or restaurant closes on a Friday night in a tourist town? We tried to go for dinner but failed. Based on these reviews I think I am glad.....

This restaurant is very nice. We had travella which was very good. And wallaby that was good, but not much taste. The potatoes were delicious. Sticky date pudding with butterscotch sauce nice as well. The views are very good. Service was okay.

The ambience was great (except for the duck/geese poo all over the outside area) The food was excellent but prices charged for Tasmanian wine over the top
