This Deluxe Seafood Platter was nothing short of fantastic. On this top deck served cold was Salmon Sashimi, Natural Oysters, Moreton Bay Bugs (Crayfish as some would call it) & Boiled Xi Tiger Prawns


The lower deck with seafood served hot comprising of Xi Tiger Prawns, Hervey Bay Scallops, Mussels in a flavourful Tomato sauce, Salt & Pepper Calamari, Mornay Lobster, Soft Shell Crab & a Whole Baked Red Snapper


This amazing Deluxe Seafood Platter though slightly pricey, was more than sufficient for 4 of us. I am not big on fried foods, so I liked the cold stuff better


An appetizing Marinara Linguini with a generous serving of calamari, chilli, fish, mussel, prawn & scallop


Seafood Paella which was fairly good but not the best I have had however… the overall dining experience at Richmond Oysters was good! Although seafood is their specialty here, there are steaks, chicken & other interesting sides & salads available too
