It's hard to say whether the greater drawcard is the Story Bridge view or the impressive range of fish - at least eight species - the provenance and suggested preparation of which are detailed on the daily fresh fish menu. Mooloolaba swordfish is a simple, satisfying main course - expertly grilled, served with a sweet peach and habanero salsa, which packs a pleasant little punch. Al dente spaghettini is laden with Fraser Island spanner crab and prawns - a melding of garlic and chilli flavours mild enough to let the seafood shine. A glass of KT rosé from the 18-page Australasian-dominated list is a fine match. From the brief, crowd-pleasing dessert menu comes an excellent panna cotta with crunchy hazelnut brittle and tiny pickled figs. The accompanying cloying coffee roulade detracts from what would have been a strong finish, as does the service which can range from polished to perfunctory.
