Richmond Oysters in Church Street has long been a favourite of ours, and we dine there regularly. The service is friendly and attentive, and the food has very seldom let us down. The noise level can get a bit frenzied, but generally is bearable.

First time visitor to this restaurant. Noisy and quite bright on arrival but we were seated quickly. Service needs to be improved though as once we were seated it took a while to place our orders. Sashimi was fresh and delish. I ordered tuna steak...More

Good seafood, adequate service, but this mob have tickets on themselves and the place simply isn't worth the high prices they charge.

Thought the individual fish dishes looked excellent, decided to try the seafood platter. It was advertised as gummy shark - surprisingly good also came with delightful scallops, oysters and prawns done in a butter sauce. Even the chips were cooked to perfection -light and crispy

An absolutely magnificent meal for my birthday. Sydney rock oysters and garlic prawns for entree followed by Morten Bay Bugs, then 3 of the Daily Market Display (whiting and flathead) and finally the Gaytime Desert. What a great meal, one of the best seafood ever.

Busy place all the time, good food although fish a bit pricey - good selection of seafood. Relatively easy to get a table. Service was quick.

Two large dividing wall fish tanks were ideal to keep our young granddaughter fascinated during much of the time we adults got serious about have a lovely seafood meal. Excellent service and variety of food. Some main courses could have been a bit more generous....More

5* if you come for lunch but only 4* if you come at night. The difference is value and crowding. Yet again, I had an excellent lunch at this place and lunch is very good value. The clam linguine is excellent. The oyster shots were...More

Their take-away sea-food is always mouth watering, succulent and fresh, and the variety astounding. I have a dying wish to share in a party on the Church Street premises and be spoiled by the family.
