There's an energy at play in The Fish House, which speaks of a restaurant at the peak of its powers. You can see it in the dexterous floor service and in the kitchen's confidence to treat the star attraction - a daily varying haul of the finest Australian seafood - simply, eschewing unnecessary flourishes. Raw scampi from Western Australia arrives butterflied and judiciously seasoned with yuzu and cayenne; pristine King George whiting is char-grilled and, like all main courses, arrives with generous shared sides - crisp-edged roast spuds, dill-flecked lettuce and vibrant mixed greens. Every aspect is well considered and complements the remarkable beach vistas and the room's airy, unfussy interiors. A well-stocked, glass-fronted cellar signals that fish isn't the only thing venerated here, as a treasure-studded drinks list affirms. Toffee-aromatic tarte Tatin, apples perfectly caramelised, provides a predictably polished finale.
