Pillie, if you haven't eben to swashies mate you haven't lived.

Its the real thing, not some "theme" bar that some marketing guru has gone out and bought all the stuff to make it look right.

The food's good, there's heaps of it and the prices are reasonable. The beer is cold and quite often the waitresses nice looking.

Nobody has ever come up with a great idea after a second bottle of water.

Last time I went there Bender, there was something on the menu that caused a bit of a stir in the forums a while back.

Ooops, I'd better withdraw that last comment! I just checked out their current menu and they don't have it anymore...

Been there a couple of times. It's a great place to take a hot date as it has an excellent ambience. The food's great, the beers cold and there are some hot lusties serving it all up for ya!

Check out their website

Broadbill has only ever been on the menu periodically, when it was available. Remember that while it may be distasteful to some that it is there, no one is breaking the law in catching or reselling it.  They haven't had it since before Christmas. I've also bought it at seamart and bejasus its good on a barbecue. I'll buy it any time its for sale.

Howeeeeever. ...try Scampi. Then you'll know what all the fuss is about. Expensive, but bloody good.

Favourite dishes for me are whitebait fritters, cajun salmon salad, and fish and chips.

 

In the bar the fish nibbles and chips are great for $10.

Yay to lusty wenches ... every tiem. I am an unashamed old fashioned sexist....love them lusty wenches.

 

Errrr... by the way can I just say that Swashbucklers is not one of my clients.

PS: When the America's Cup was on I used to take my overseas journo mates there and they bloody loved it. Tim Jeffery, who is the Daily Telegraph yachting reporter, travels the world constantly covering yachting events (dunno how he does it, personally) and Swashies is the only place on the planet where he will eat oysters. Is that good? I think it is.

 

Like I say, its the real thing, get it while it lasts because something this good doesn't last for ever.

I understand fully that it is not illegal to catch, sell and serve broadbill but take away the market need for the stuff and it becomes an unprofitable target......it is also about education:

Last year  spent a good hour on the phone talking to a seafood chief and purchaser for one of the swanky "downtown" eateries and I believe by the end of the call he was going to do his best to at least find out more about the current stock levels and about the decline at which the fisherey is suffereing....which might have turned into a small victory, it might not??...actually must do a follow up and see what happened.

anyhoo...feel free to start a thread on this subject someone....Bender?

Barrie, I thought you said you didn't have a criminal record ?.

I suppose technically you're correct, it's not a record it's a CD.
