My wife and I regularly lunch at this restaurant and have had some brilliant degustation nights there and birthday gatherings also. It is ideally situated by the North Esk river and the food is always of the highest quality, from my wife's favourite salt and pepper calamari to Don Cameron's various takes on Asian style food, with a perfect balance...

The menu is interesting and varied, with a good range of small dishes, nice for sharing and for putting together a good meal. There is also an excellent wine list.

My friend and I went here for lunch and I can honestly say they served the best salt and pepper squid I have ever tasted. So tender and freshly made. Could come back every lunch time just to enjoy this meal. Our waitress was excellent. Have introduced her to breakfast martini's, so maybe these will be on the menu too... More

I attended a Melbourne Cup fund raiser lunch at this restaurant and was very impressed. The feel was casual dining but great service and the food very tasty and nicely presented. Well worth a visit whether for a drink and snack only or a full meal. Great spot at the Seaport.

Mud Bar is a great way to spend a winter’s afternoon with a selection of bar snacks and a glass or two of wine. A nice relaxing seating are allows for a quiet chat with friends or your other-half while the fire roars on the Plasma TV. An excellent place for dinner as well.

This place is popular and we had to make a reservation in advance. The staff were excellent, friendly, & extremely helpful. The ambiance and setting was cosy, warm, & romantic, on a cold winter's evening. The menu was sufficient, but the wine list was extensive. We had a fish & chips, pan fried salmon with rice, soft shell crabs, &... More

Maybe it is me, but try as I might I could not find the entrance to this restaurant. It was dark and raining and I walked in circles after my GPS said I had arrived. Plenty of other diners were there so I guess it may have been me. The food was well cooked and presented but lacked zing. The... More

We seem to come as a family and for special occasions.. we enjoy the ambience in the evening and enjoy the river view during the day. Definitely not for the budget conscious but a great place for those that enjoy fine consistent meals.

It's our usual spur of the moment place to be. If you want an good meal and good experience for not too much money this is the place to be. We are locals and been here many times. The service has improved a lot over the last two to three years. Simple things like coffees and cakes are always to... More

First impressions are excellent. The interior is modern and sleek with separate bar & restaurant areas so you can pop in for a drink and/or dine. The service was professional and the servers were knowledgeable and happy to provide recommendations. The menu had plenty of choice & the dishes were lovely, (and large for a fine dining restaurant). I had... More
