My friends introduced me to this beautiful little family owned and run Mediterranean seafood restaurant, everything is always superbly cooked and service is consistently friendly and fast! I would reccomend this place to anyone I know. I bought my father here (who loved his seafood) and he is still raving about it!! Keep it up Maestral

My wife and I ate here last Friday. The ambient temperature was over 40 and the small air conditioner was not coping well. Still, as we were inside we were more comfortable than the people in the open air section on the footpath. We began with oysters. They were delicious. We followed with a seafood platter for two with a... More

Excellent Seaford and excellent service. Not cheap but definitely worth what you pay. Good seafood being hard to find in Canberra, a real asset.

Beautiful dinner for two. Blue vein prawns, soft shell crab, eye fillet with Balmain bugs and lemon Sole. Each meal was better and better than the one before. Unfortunately no scampi which we had been looking forward too. But the choice was great and service excellent. Will be back. And remember no wine, luckly a bottle shop just around the... More

This is a lovely family run restaurant with great service. The Saffron prawns are amazing. This is the only restaurant I have felt so confident that I would recommend it to anyone. Yum, yum,yum!

Hadn't been to Maestral for ages and when we found out it was opened for lunch decided to go. Three of us for a reunion and we couldn't have picked a better place. It's a small restaurant but there were only a couple of tables free (suggest booking in advance). The food is still excellent as is the service and... More

I love coming to the Maestral and can't go past the perfect, mouthwatering steaks. Keep up the good work. I will be back.

Why didn't I know about Maestral earlier? Talk about a hidden gem! Visited for the first time recently and haven't enjoyed a meal so much in ages. So many dishes on the menu I want to try. Great food, large portions, friendly service and an unpretentious atmosphere. No 'full of themselves' staff, small portion or unwarranted exorbitant prices. BYO too!... More
