This famous seafood restaurant uses the best local fish and shellfish such as red snapper, blue eye trevalla, yellow fin tuna and great local lobsters. There’s oysters from Pambula, Merimbula and Clyde river too and fabulous prawns from Lake Ilawarra . It’s all about the best local seafood.

The menu is an eclectic and blending of classic French and English seafood dishes with olive oil, lemons and tomatoes from the Mediterranean and chilli, ginger and spice from Asia. The new menu now features recipes not only from Rick’s South East Asian series Far Eastern Odyssey and his favourite fish curry from India, but also some lovely dishes from his book Venice to Istanbul, like prawns with tomato, basil and feta, John Dory alla Carlina from the island of Torcello in the Venetian lagoon and a spicy Turkish roast chicken with sumac, pomegranate molasses, chilli and sesame seeds.

The restaurant has a spectacular location which adds to the coastal experience. Try a table on the deck with ocean views. Hard to beat. Visit Rick Steins at Bannisters
