Some 30 minutes from Brisbane CBD on the Redcliffe Peninsula with absolute waterfront location, you will find this delightful place. This is a seafood lover’s paradise with the freshest of fare served straight from the trawlers within the local harbour. 

This is more of a traditional seafood restaurant, however there are share platters available for two.  A choice is available from the signature dishes which include such items as oysters Kilpatrick, Crumbed fish, prawns, calamari, fish wings and every other type of seafood you can think of.  If you prefer not to share (and with these dishes available, it would be hard to!), why not try some of the many solo dishes available.
