What makes us different?
We have two locations in Wellington and Auckland that specialise in Seafood (Crabs, fish, mussels, tuatuas and a lot more). Both our restaurants have stunning sea views as they are located at Wellington (Queens wharf) and Auckland (Princes wharf).
Been here for dinner with friends and family. Great ambiance, and very popular (had to wait 1 hour for a table for 5). Portion sizes were decent, but wasn't too impressed with the flavours. Got steamed crab, deep friend softshell crab, paella... Actually one of the best dishes was the spinach salad with shaved parmesan! Wouldn't be my first choice to go back...
Have been here 3 times, Lunch and 2 dinner services. For all the hype I was left a little disappointed each time. Crabs seem to be out of season quite a bit considering the name, small portions of lamb but it was cooked well (as expected for the price paid). Dry Chicken burger & fries, Seafood, might be better off grabbing some fish n chips takeaways and enjoying the waterfront on a good night. Service was ok but not friendly. On one occasion (granted they were busy at the time) My bosses wife and kids were turned away due to "lack of seating" only for him and I to be then seated at a 5 person table which would have accommodated all of us??! To sum it up......Meh
