Nice restaurant with beautiful settings. Though with the name Rick stein attached one would expect great things not just good for the price. If you are staying at the hotel then worth a try.

If you don't like seafood you will be converted. Intimate atmosphere, fine wine selection and exquisite food Highly recommend the signature dish, the fish pie. Large selection of both entree, mains and desert. Don't worry they have a cheese board if you don't like deserts...More

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 he 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 enjoy employing local people who may lack the total polish of fine dining restaurants, but who more than make up for it with a genuine welcome.Peter Bacon, General Manager
