The word atrocious springs to mind. The chef does not take pride in what he/she lets escape from their kitchen. He/she should cage it!

Visited this lovely restaurant again when visiting my family in Australia. Seafood platters all round and some very nice wine made for a very relaxed afternoon watching the sea lap in the beach. Attentive staff and superb food, what more could you want

Personally I prefer outside but have only been for lunch. Tell them it is your anniversary & I am sure they will help. If inside try upstairs you might get more of a view if you are near a window

We telephoned the day before whilst in Sydney and asked for a downstairs, outside table by the waterside - and that is what we got! It was wonderful. Hope it goes well Linda.
