    We tried every flavor of oysters at this restaurant, and we particularly loved the Natural, Creme Fraiche t/w Yarra Valley Caviar, and Sorbet varieties. The freshness of the Natural oysters was astonishing, as if they were just plucked from the sea, offering a true taste of the ocean with every bite. The Creme Fraiche t/w Yarra Valley Caviar oysters were a feast for the taste buds, where the delicacy of the caviar intertwines with the smoothness of cream, creating a unique and layered taste experience. The Sorbet oysters were a delightful surprise, accompanied by sorbet and what I guess was champagne, each bite was refreshingly crisp, perfectly blending the oyster's oceanic flavor with the sweet homemade sauce. Apart from the oysters, the garlic bread, scallops, and bay bugs were equally impressive. The garlic bread was crispy on the outside and soft inside, emanating an enticing garlic aroma, an excellent appetizer. The scallops were cooked just right, preserving their tender texture, and the pipa shrimp was another must-try delicacy, each bite bursting with freshness. As for the cocktails, each one was meticulously crafted to suit my taste. The creativity of the Bloody Mary Oyster Shot was particularly outstanding, combining oysters with cocktail to kickstart a gastronomic journey that was endlessly enjoyable. The vibrant color and alcohol-forward flavor of the Aperol Spritz make it a must-try for those who favor strong alcoholic drinks. The Espresso Martini had a rich, dense foam, offering a bold and captivating flavor. The Margarita and Mimosa were also wonderful, each cocktail possessing its own unique charm. Lastly, I must mention the restaurant's owner, who was not only witty and humorous but also attentive and experienced. The overall impression of the restaurant was further elevated by his presence.

    Booked Blu Oyster a month ago for an anniversary celebration and the wait was absolutely worth it. Gabrielle and Jason were wonderful hosts who were so attentive and interested in us as guests and not just customers. Despite all the fantastic choices we had the indulgence platter. ALL the oysters, bugs, prawns, fish, and scallops so fresh with beautiful homemade sauces and so thoughtfully presented. Whatever fresh seafood you order, you must try their champagne sauce. Beautiful selection of wines to compliment the food as well. We had a wonderful evening, thank you both so much! Anne-Louise and Michael

    As luck would have it- having booked for Friday instead of Thursday my brother and I were just about to go somewhere else when, unexpectedly, the owner Jason turned up to open the premise and get ready for his four o’clock opening. I, by chance, said hi and explained my mistake. He said, give me ten minutes and I’ll be ready for you… He looked after us beautifully and the platter for two was wonderful. If you want some really fresh seafood I do recommend Bluoyster Now that’s customer service I’m going back for the lobster thermidor

    I’m currently hosting a group of mates from Hong Kong showing them what Australia has to offer. After having some pretty disgusting oysters from Barilla Bay, I had to find a way to redeem myself and Blu Oysters managed just that. The oysters and the prawns were to die for and the staff were just amazing as well. We would dine there everyday if we could!
