I was traveling with a retired California lobster trapper who can't pass up a chance to check out the Australian way of doing things. We were here last year and enjoyed it so much, we couldn't wait to see it again. Imagine our surprise! Last year it was more like a shack. This year it’s more like an upscale restaurant! However, fresh lobster is good no matter where you are in the world. We’ve eaten fresh lobster on three continents now.
The tour of the lobster packing and exporting business was very thorough. It is impressive how they have automated the tour so that anybody coming in and basically start right away using the handheld audio device. This doesn’t disrupt anybody working in the business and everything Is explained quite thoroughly.
This year we skipped the tour and went straight for the fresh lobster. Service was quick and it was fun to chat up the locals and out of country workers using their time to extend their visas.
Lunch arrived and the lobster was perfect! The fried rice was excellent as a side dish, the french fries were perfectly fried, and the Honest Ale from Margaret River was satisfying. I can't wait for my next trip to Australia. If I'm in Cervantes again, I'll be at the Lobster Shack. See you then!
