    The food was exceptional - very creative and beautiful flavours. Our favourite was the dry aged barramundi, where the flesh was still soft and succulent while there was a more intense flavour.

    The food was great, particularly the steamed cod and the prawn tart. However the octopus entree seemed like a miss. Wish the portions in snacks were better for the price.

    Two words. So good! Just amazing & I was truly surprised by how good everything was. From the moment I walked in, I was made to feel welcome & relaxed. All the staff were lovely. The food was so delicious. All the snacks are highlights in their own way. I loved the kelp butter which accompanied the warm rye bread. The prawn crudo had just enough spice from the sambal which was not at all overpowering. The lamb ribs were tender, flavourful & moorish. Octopus skewers were so so good, a must with that smokey soy on top! The abalone pie with its buttery pastry & umami laden filling is a must! It's rich but if you can fit it in, have one to yourself to indulge. Mains are also superb as were the sides. Loved the fried potatoes sitting in a delicious pool of seaweed butter. Everything was absolute fire including a fantastic drinks list. Can't wait to return!

    The lamb entree was very fatty, there was excess use of vinegar in some dishes which ruined flavours. Presentation was good, the fig desert was average and the ice on top superfluous. Overall a reasonable meal only.

    Beautiful relaxed ambience in the restaurant along with 10/10 service. The snack tasting menu was executed very well and with substantial portion sizes. Very accomodating to dietary needs too. All the seafood was phenomenon + the charred sugarloaf cabbage wow! The meat dishes (lamb and bavette steak) couldn’t match. Altogether a lovely meal enjoyed with friends.

    Sadly our table wasn't ready at the time of the reservation, so we had to eat the snack in the counter. The food was good, we ordered fish and wagyu, but the meat was better than the swordfish. It was a good dinner after all, the xo sauce, the potatoes and the dessert were very tasty . Good drinks and wine selection

    Really disappointed for a place that identifies as a seafood restaurant they did a pretty poor job. I had the tiger prawn for my entree and it just tasted of smoke, very bland. I had the fish shoulder and head for main and there was barely any meat, and it was supposed to be shared! It was $55 for the main which is ridiculous for a few mouthfuls. Very disappointed won't be returning.

    LongshoreResponded on 25 October 2023
    Hi Caaaaaa, I am glad you enjoyed the food. However it is an unfair comment and inequitable observation to say that we do not want to be there and to diminish all the hard work and genuine service we gave everybody that night and every other nights. 2 staff from front house and 1 staff from the kitchen could not work on the night you dined with us due to emergency/ personal matters. Every team member who worked that night in fact, all chose to be there and we all gave our best. Your feedback is noted however does not reflect on other reviews from the same night. Thank you. Restaurant Manager- Dorothy Lee
