We shared the seafood platter .. all food was tasty with delicious Asian flavours ..

Barramundi and broth was so tasty, soft shell wrap was delicious and tempura prawns were crunchy and large. Sardines were tasty but a bit strong for my palate but that is what they are..

Tony came out for a chat.. nice man and this shop is a great addition for the local area..

Take away menu looked busy too!

We will be back

The food at this restaurant is exceptional and the wine list varied. I would highly recommend it to those who love seafood as that is the restaurant's specialty, with the ingredients sourced from all over Australia.
The homemade ice-cream selections on the dessert menu are amazing and a lovely way to end the night. Highly recommended!

The restaurant itself was very lovely. The waitress asked if we wanted all the meals bought out together to which we replied yes, unfortunately one of the meals arrived at least 15 minutes before any other meal. So by the time everyone elses arrived - this meal was completely cold. No apologies no nothing. The asian vegetables was very disappointing. The meat meals were lovely. The staff were very friendly but obviously trying upsell everything which was a little disappointing.

Way over priced for the quality of food they are serving. Food was seriously lacking flavour (lamb ribs the only exception), 2 dishes came out rather cold and tapas portions are too small for sharing.
We were also served a glass of red wine which had a sediment in the bottom. We raised it with the lady serving us, but she brushed it off without offering a replacement or refund.

Third time to TMC. Just a spur of the moment meal and no trouble to get a table. Initial service was attentive. Waitress took our meal order without a notepad and this impressed my wife. Not so impressive was the fact my entree was overlooked completely. Politely waited whilst she ate hers and the next thing we are being served the main.
When I enquired a different waitress said it wasn't on the docket. She asked if I wanted it but the timing had obviously passed.
I requested a wine list which was dutifully delivered but the return trip to collect my order didn't occur until well after the main was delivered and mostly consumed.

I completely understand these are 1st world problems and there are bigger issues all around us however when you pay very good money for a meal I guess it does raise your expectations.
It certainly wasn't the experience I had enjoyed on previous visits.

If you love seafood, you will love this restaurant! The 7-course degustation seafood menu changes frequently and is always an absolute delight to the tastebuds. Even though you won't have much space left, the desserts are worth trying too, and are of a high standard. Definitely a gem in Upwey and you'll be glad you visited!

Went there for our anniversary - the food was out of this world and the service was great. They even had our table marked with a Happy Anniversary note which we both thought made it that much more welcoming.

Started with coctails, strawberry dacquari and expresso martini, which were great. Then chose the banquet, which consisted of oysters, garlic prawns, asian inspired baramundi, curried red emperor, soft crab and lobster, done as a mornay and steamed with asian influence. All delicious couldn't pick a favourite. Then desert 2 had chocolate spring rolls that very excellent. 2 had fried ice cream, which came in bowl with chocolate lid and a jug of caramdl sauce that you poured onto it and so it melted and sent chocolate and caramel down on ice cream, delicious . The service was good, very knowledgable, the chef came out and introduced himself and checked on how we liked things, you were not packed in, overall a really good night, and one we hope to repeat soon. We were the last to leave and felt no pressure to go even then.
