The new staff member was hopeless & had no idea what he was doing. He took my order 3 times then came back to tell me they had no oysters left after getting them out of the fridge when I order the 1st time.

Overpriced and nothing special. Especially disappointed with the abalini (pictured). They also took our order incorrectly.

Nothing wrong with the oyster Shop except the prices. AUD13 for a dozen unshucked oysters. AUD 9 for a dozen at Coffin Bay.

A very quaint little shop but don't be fooled - the foods very good. We tried the grilled marron with garlic and sample sized king george whiting. We also brought 2 dozen oysters to take back to our unit and eat - and they were...More
