I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.

Although one does not have to be a member to dine here, it is necessary to sign in at the front desk. The dining area is casual with a variety of table sizes and an adjacent outdoor area. Booking is preferable for groups to ensure the correct table configuration.

The menu has a strong focus on seafood and is supplemented with a range of blackboard specials. A daily pasta dish and market fresh fish, such as the grilled King salmon, ensure that there is something for everyone. Order and pay at the register in front of the kitchen and reasonably priced drinks are purchased at the bar.

Every meal for our table of six was enjoyed immensely as we shared a variety of tastes and textures. The beer battered dory with mushy peas was pronounced as the best fish and chips had in ages and the salmon was cooked perfectly. The salt and pepper calamari was tender and lightly spiced and the accompanying black garlic aioli was a tasty touch.

The desserts were $10 each and the unique takes on a splice and a pavlova were as refreshing and interesting as they looked.

Head Nor East to dine on seafood in a relaxed and picturesque setting.
