While some of the courses were OK, we were disappointed in the Clarence River school prawns which appeared to be the end of a batch. A number of the prawns were black around the gills...it was a disappointing version of what had previously been an excellent dish.
The so-called double fried chips were over-cooked and not acceptable at even a take away fish shop. There I did appear to attend in the dishes being over cooked.

We were hosting some guests so we were reticent about complaining on the day but it is unlikely we will be back.
I was later wondering if the ownership of the restaurant had changed recently?

i spoke to owner of restaurant told him that the $170 seafood platter for Two people only had 3 (three) prawns that were small to medium size and the 12 dozen oysters were the smallest that ive over many years of eating oysters , especially when someone is paying that cost of a platter ! he explained thats the size he got ! and thats the size of sydney rocks oysters !! I spoke that im in customer service also and constructive feedback is always good to hear but ! he wasnt too fussed about my opinion and moved on about his evening . So i wont be going back there

Food was very pricey for what it was. Wine by the glass starts at $15, not what you'd expect for a casual eats place. Best factor was the venue which was clean, inviting and great waterfront position. Nice place to visit if you're not too hungry and want to enjoy the nice weather.

Hi Sammy, Our wine by the glass actually starts at $11 for our King Valley Pinot Grigio, which is amazing for an all Australian full service restaurant directly on the waterfront at premium Barangaroo! We are so pleased you enjoyed our waterfront position. We really couldn't price ourselves any better and still be authentic in our offering.

Love this restaurant, such great value and delicious, the only negative was that we didn't order entree and mains came out within 10 mins of ordering. Didn't get enough time to have a wine after cocktails. The cocktails are superb though.

Lovely food considering limited menu choice. Expensive for battered fish with chips an additional $$. Service needs examining with at least 2 tables seated after us being served their meal and leaving before we received ours.

Enjoyed our evening with our friends from Melbourne. The seafood platter though excellent was short on oysters (we were advised on ordering) but exceptional. The sweetest prawns we've eaten in a long time.
Nice wine and beer options at reasonable prices. A most enjoyable atmosphere and not noisy at all. No rush dining and very pleasant service. I've rated the place moderately on value as I loath the surcharge associated with weekends and public holidays - Australian restaurateurs need to organise themselves and get the government to legislate around the world's highest minimum wage and premiums for public holiday and weekend work. That said, we did tip too!

Overall was quite enjoyable! Had a seafood platter. Oysters, prawns and salt and pepper calamari were excellent - octopus a bit chewy and average. Dessert excellent!
