    The food was amazing and everyone enjoyed their meals. Ambience was very nice and the overhead heaters kept everyone very warm. Expensive but it’s what you would expect for a fancy restaurant on the river. Would definitely dine here again for a special occasion.

    Clarity needs to be made on the menu - I wrongly assumed, as a high quality seafood restaurant, the Port Lincoln spiced calamari would be fresh pan tossed and not crumbed or battered like you’d get on a menu in a pub. Not enjoyable. Sashimi entree was delicious, just a shame about calamari main

    In a good location and very friendly staff but I was a little disappointed by the food (prawns and rock fish) which was overcooked. Chips were good though

    Been a few times over the years, but our Easter Sunday experience was not good. Shocking service, slow, had to ask many times where our drinks were. Food was average, overcooked steak, not what you would expect for the price.
