Visited last Friday evening as it was my wife's birthday. Had a party of six. A reservation was made on Tuesday for 7.00pm on the Friday. When we arrived there was no reservation in their book so we had to sit at the bar for about 20-30 minutes waiting for a table. Not a good start. The food was very good and the menu had a good selection for both fish and meat. We all ordered seafood and everything was exceptionally well cooked. No problems with the food or service. The other major problem was the air conditioning. Admittedly it had been a 40 degree day but if you are running a top-end restaurant the air conditioning should be working perfectly regardless of the temperature outside. Looking around the restaurant there were many diners fanning themselves with either a napkin or a menu. We had intended to have dessert but because of the oppressive heat and humidity we elected to go elsewhere to a dessert bar in a nearby suburb. Hopefully, the next time we visit our reservation will be in the book and the air conditioning will be working well. Also, I think we will not dine on either a Friday or Saturday evening as the acoustics are not particularly good (no soft furnishings to help with the noise factor) and it was very difficult to hold a conversation and to hear our party members on the opposite side of the table.

Liked to it while it lasted, but it looks like the position of this restaurant on the south side of town centre didn't work. Pity as it was good seafood.

Went with the calamari, stringy and very oily. A bit disappointing as the place was recommended and very busy. Good service though...

WOW, what an absolute gem of a seafood restaurant in Adelaide.
The experience was stunning, from the first minute you enter the restaurant you feel welcome and have a feeling this is a real quality restaurant, and above all these guys and gals know how to do seafood.
The wait staff are brilliant and nothing was an issue, topmarks.
Well it certainly lived up to all those good initial feelings.
The quality of the meal is unsurpassed, the best seafood I have had in Adelaide.
This is the destination restaurant for seafood.

Please catch a cab for 7 mins from the CBD and treat yourself to this restaurant, you will not be dissapointed.

If you like seafood this is a great place to try some awesome food. Unpretentious, great helpful service, and good value wine. We started with oysters, my partner had barramundi with calamari which came battered salted or grilled. I went for chargrilled whiting and crumbed prawns which were excellent
