The Sydney Opera house will be across the water to your right and the famous Sydney Bridge is to your left...no finer location for a great view and to watch people on the promenade. Once the sun sets, lights twinkle on and are reflected off the water below.
We started with the lobster bisque soup that had a thick spicy tomato base and a splash of brandy among plenty of sweet lobster chunks sunk in the bottom of the bowl ($11.90A). All tables were given warm homemade bread that was like sourdough with a crispy crunchy crust. We had a bottle of Australian Riesling that was about $24A.
For the main meal, we both had "ship and shore" which was a thick juicy fillet served with a lobster tail that sat close to a heaping mound of sauteed julienne vegetable strips and served with butter crusted new potato's ($39.50A). Our fillets were melt-in-the-mouth tender and the lobster was firm and sweet.
We saw other tables enjoying the Sashimi/Sushi (Salmon and Tuna with Wasabe Soy Sauce-$16.90A) and the hot gourmet seafood platter that has Lobster,Bugs(?), Prawn, Scallops, Fish Pieces, Baby Squid, and Scampi-$17.90A).
Our waiter was attentive and timely but never rushed us which is my pet peeve in tourist areas. Let's face it! There is nothing like fresh crisp linen with candlelight as the world moves around you! It's worth the splurge for this very special place in a very special city!

We ate fresh seafood a la carte -- tempura prawns, Tasmanian salmon. And the chocolate dessert we shared was out of this world -- you don't get much of it, but it's really rich in flavour. The cocktails here are special too. I had a Bloody Maria, which is a Bloody Mary but with tequila!
I'd fully recommend everyone to go here at least once, especially couples who want a romantic place to dine.
