Despite our extensive coastline, benchmark Australian seafood restaurants are rarer than Venus tuskfish, which puts 24-year-old Fins and its chef and proprietor Steven Snow into the fish hall of fame. Peerless seafood and constancy pervade his menu. The daily line-caught selection still comes three ways - mild chilli miso consommé, Moroccan tagine and Snow's classic with riesling, lemon and parsley. Holidaymakers, new amours and retirees cluster into the Dutch-Indo-inspired, indoor-outdoor dining room to share local surf 'n' turf (Tweed prawns, Bangalow pork) or bowls of Portuguesestyle mollusc risotto. There are excellent catches, too, in the award-winning global wine list, represented by no fewer than three sommeliers, who will match a moscato to the wobbly lemon myrtle panna cotta. Or explore a wider wine world from a bar stool, grazing on the daily offerings in the revamped Pop Up section. Either way, your briny expectations will be met.
