Stopped here for lunch because we absolutely love our seafood. Oysters were very disappointing - didn't seem fresh, had no taste at all, not plump. We think they were not fresh and actually de-frosted in some way. That was our opinion and believe me, we know our oysters! Mussels were excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed them, could've used a bit more bread!

Hello,
So glad you enjoyed your mussels. They are so plump at the moment. As an oyster farmer, I can absolutely say we farmed the oysters and would never ever think of serving frozen oysters. Goes so much against what we are.
Hope to see you again and offer you another dozen.
Have a wonderful holiday in Tasmania
Kind regards Julia

Went there for oysters for lunch. The quality of the oysters was the worst we have had in all Tasmania. Very small. Not plump. Very disappointed. The quality elsewhere is far superior. Very busy spot.$15 a half dozen for low grade product.

The seafood is just so fresh and beautifully cooked. It's a casual spot for a delicious seafood meal and is always busy. We avoided the busiest time at lunch and it was an amazing meal

Enjoyed our Scallops. We had lunch on a cruise so we were not really hungry but just wanted to stop for a small sample. Found the farm very hectic, but still enjoyed the atmosphere .
