We enjoyed a great dinner, the Singapore style prawns were just the best. I loved the fresh flavours, especially the lime/coconut combo. I want to return during daylight to see the views.More

We were there for lunch and had travelled from Sydney on our way to Canberra so were just casually dressed as were everyone else eating there.

Description
Our restaurant is a reflection of Rick's passion for seafood and the coastal lifestyle which he has enjoyed for most of his life. As Rick says: "nothing is so exhilarating as fresh fish, simply cooked". He believes that fresh seafood should speak for itself. While he enjoys occasional fine dining, his food is much more about what he really likes to eat: a plate of Clyde River oysters, a pot of Illawarra prawns with mayonnaise, a mound of spanner crab, a slice of blue eye or a perfectly grilled sand whiting. We like our service to be informal but observant and we have a local team who will greet you with a warm, genuine welcome.
