We wandered in here by accident as you do in the restaurant zone at Potts Point. We had a great meal and some fun in a packed house late at night. Trying to have something with prawns and chilli, we ended up with something our young, just off the plane, German waitress thought was prawns but weren't called prawns. The... More

Had lots of seafood as appetisers and then indulged in a rib eye steak. Delicious. One of the better steaks that I have had.

Had lunch with a couple of old and dear friends. The service was exceptional, the waiters lots of fun - we ate simply, fish and chips, school prawns and a salad plus a couple of glasses of riesling to rinse it down - everything was fresh, sympathetically prepared (no heavy sauces) - brilliant! We now plan to make this a... More

We went to this restaurant on a hot summers night looking for good food and good conversation, we were disappointed. The starters were ok, nothing special. For mains we ordered battered flathead, one of our favourite meal. The food served to us was one of worse meals I've had. My local does much better food. The fish was completely overwhelmed... More

A basic (ie not fancy) restaurant offering fresh fish. Parking is an issue, so either go by taxi or plan and locate the nearest parking garages before you embark. Service was quick and attentive, service staff helpful and friendly. Food was lovely, portions perhaps a little small. Ice cream sandwich was an interesting shared dessert.

We came here after seeing good review online. We ordered beer battered flathead & chips. To be honest, the batter is extremely good - I would even say the best that I ever had. Unfortunately, the fish meat is too soft and tasteless. Additionally, the chips are overly salty. At the end of the meal, when I told one of... More

Now you can book online, call, order takeaway ,home delivery and more. Diners tend to be some of the Beautiful People abs staff have been chosen not only for their looks but also fir their... More

Nice bar, good fish. Kind personnel make you comfortable. You can see the kitchen, that is a plus. Prices not so cheap but it's Sydney. Some of them speak Italian. Do not take an expresso if you are Italian! Lol
