We had lunch here and thought the food was superb. Husband had seafood linguine and I had the chowder. Very tasty and service was fine. View was good but if you don’t get the front two tables at the window then view could be obscured....More

I was very pleasantly suprised by this little aquarium tucked away at the Merimbula wharf. It had a great mix of sea life which was well presented with the relevant information. It costs $22 for adults and $15 for children with concession and package prices...More

It's a pleasant place to sit for a coffee or a light meal, with views over the Wharf towards main beach. After your coffee visit the Aquarium with its various displays of local and tropical fish.

Thought we would try it out, nice place on the wharf, the aquarium itself is ok, it is a small area, had a good range of sea creatures, the restaurant part is nice and up there in price. Overall it is ok for a visit.
