image002We love all good food. But we are especially passionate about Australia’s wonderful array of local fish and seafood, freshly caught every day. Oysters are one of our obsessions.

And while you are exploring our daily menus, or simply sharing a plate of oysters in our Bar, you will also enjoy magical views across Blackwattle Bay to the Anzac Bridge and Sydney Fish Market from our historic boathouse home.  You might even spot a few Sydney rowers gliding by.

It takes just 10 minutes drive from the City centre, or a water taxi ride to our front door, to experience this spectacular flip side view of our amazing city. It gets better year by year. We’ve been enjoying it for 17 so far!

Our food

Our lunch and dinner menus change daily so you can enjoy the best and most interesting seafood and other seasonal produce available each day from our favourite suppliers.
 Our daily menu includes our signature dishes, such as Snapper Pie, live crustaceans and a wonderful array of oysters from around Australia. More...

Oysters and Crustaceans

Australia has the best oysters and crustaceans in the world, so our obsession is not surprising. Our daily menu has at least 12 oyster varieties, and crustaceans such as hand-dived scallops from Kangaroo Island, Tasmanian lobsters, prawns and crabs. More...

Our location

Our boathouse sits right on Blackwattle Bay, opposite the Sydney Fish Market, and all our tables have spectacular views across the water to the beautiful Anzac Bridge. Water taxis are the safest and most fun way to reach us from anywhere on Sydney Harbour, but if you prefer to drive we offer valet parking on Friday and Saturday nights. More...
