An amazing dining experience. We visited for lunch, my wife ordered the fish special and I ordered the fish and chips. (Barramundi). Both meals were cooked to perfection, so delicious and enjoyable, and large! Great value and superb eating. Totally recommend!

Booked a special table for Birthday dinner & we were seated right in the walk way near the cash register counter. Not happy considering we booked a week in advance & requested a nice table for Birthday Dinner. After a round of drinks & stress...from being cramped near the counter we made a request to be moved to the outside table that there were 4 x 4 tables easily moved too accommodate a table of 6. We were told sorry not possible as they were booked already. Hmm not Happy. The waitress who I think understood how unhappy we were then said she would ask the manager if there was anything she could do. She came back & said when the couple to the right of the counter were finished they would make us a table there & we could move there. Better but still not brilliant.More

At $140 with lobster available as an optional extra, you'd be hard pressed to find a better value seafood platter on the Gold Coast. Huge platter of well-prepared, tasty seafood including natural oysters, two types of prawns, clams, scallops, crab, salt and pepper squid and...Moreton Bay bugs. Fast, friendly service too. Highly recommended.More

Walking past noticed very pet friendly. Tick Tick. The staff extremely knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. We order the June seafood special. WOW this did not disappoint. Grilled prawns, Morton bay bugs, scollops, salmon and calamari. Generous portions beautifully presented. Then the deal breaker really great...value. Would highly recommend. Delightful afternoon especially when the busker set up across the road. Love the GC, sunshine and especially our great Restaurant’s - Yellowfin is right up there for a great casual Sunday Lunch. Wine list is also very good.More

Such potential with great reviews but terribly disappointing. My man and I attended for dinner whilst on holiday in a Tuesday night. We booked a table online after reading great reviews. The restaurant was reasonably busy but not overrun. Maître de was pleasant but not...really dressed for her position. Wait staff were not attentive but one was new, her first night. The other waitress was pleasant enough but very abrupt. We were led to our table, provided with water and menus and left alone. We had to ask for a pre-dinner drink. We had to ask to place our meal order. We had to ask them not to serve our main while we were still eating our entree. We were not asked if we wanted anything after we finished our wine - dessert, coffee, liqueur?? Our entrees were okay - Mr had scallops which were fair; I had calamari which was quite nice. Mains were fish and chips with a side of rocket salad. The fish was dry, the batter was soft and heavy rather than crisp and light. Chips were very ordinary similar to frozen chips. I’m sure they would like to be paid but why did we have to chase the wait staff to do so ? This is not a restaurant we would recommend when there are so many great choices.More

My husband and I celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary at this restaurant on Valentines Day and overall we were happy with the service and the seafood platter presentation. What we didn’t like was the crab. It presented well, but after doing the usual battle to...get some sweet juicy meat, we found that it was dry in the legs and overall tasteless. We had saved it until last, wanting to finish our otherwise lovely meal with the platter’s crowning glory, but it was just disappointing. We asked if it had been frozen and the waiter said he would ask, but then gave no answer when we paid our bill.More

The perfect seafood platter for 2. Fresh tasty seafood delivered by great service. We couldn’t believe the efficiency of the staff. Sonya was front of house and Joanna was our waitress and both were delightful. I would thoroughly recommend this for seafood lovers.

This was by far the most delicious barramundi I have had in the long time. It was expertly prepared : tender, juicy with the perfectly crispy skin. The accompanying veggies were melting in my mouth . Highly recommended!

Ordered through UberEats. Order took longer than expected. Restaurant owner said Uber had no record of my order yet they made my order according to her and when I threatened to report her to UberEats miraculously my order was cancelled on the UberEats app. If...I could give a 0 for this restaurant I would. I was looking forward to my meal after a wonderful day at Seaworld then nothing but stress from an owner who lies.More

Stopped here with family for birthday dinner, was absolutely fantastic. Ordered the seafood platter for myself and my son 15yrs, and every thing was perfectly cooked. We struggled to eat it all , but we made sure to as was too good not to. 3...members of the party ordered steak cooked different ways and all said was cooked perfectly. The other kids ordered chicken Parma and they also loked and tasted delicious. Highly recommend this place for a meal.More
