Reviews

We live locally to this place but have never dined there before. What a great surprise! The pork ribs were the best ever. The barramundi beautiful and the experience was better than most. Thoroughly recommended.

Onshore was not a restaurant id heard of prior to First Table and so didn't know what to expect. This was also the first time I used First Table. We were greeted with a smile, our food was delicious and the bill was a delight! Definitely go back to Onshore and definitely use First Table again.

Yet another fabulous meal
Incredible wine list
Started with tapas/sharing entrees of chowder, bruschetta, oysters and honey prawns
Mains of nz sole and steak were wonderful
Loved coming here and will be back soon

We enjoyed our lunch at On Shore. They have an extensive, diverse menu with something to suit everyone. I enjoyed a delicious warm lamb salad (Greek salad with loads of yummy feta!). My girlfriend had the wild barramundi, grilled with a fresh side salad and fries. Service was fine with the owner saying hello and welcoming us to his establishment for the first time. Highly recommended!

This is another experience booking with First Table that was a disaster. The food was the worst we have experienced yet. Maybe First Table should eat at the restaurant before they promote it on their site

I really enjoyed the food at this unpretentious restaurant.The menu was very diverse offering four fish mains (one of which my wife had) as well as the usual steak and poultry choices.Seafood chowder as an entree was delicious as were the mussels.
The wines were reasonably priced with a good choice.

Very nice food and friendly staff .

Great experience

- dined at On Shore on

Unfortunately our experience was not fantastic.
The service was fairly good and prompt. However for a quite week night with and despite there only being very small number of people in the restaurant the waiter told us that one of the fish dishes had sold out?
Unfortunately the steak ordered was over cooked and chewy.
We probably wouldn’t dine there again.

The food was pretty good, we had the linguini marinara and the sole for mains which were both good. The duck pancakes were great! Great value with first table.

Food was pretty good for the price. Quality might not be the best, but to feed four hungry big units it's not too bad. Had the squid, chicken and beef nachos as well as both variety of dumpling and our favourite the pork roll.

A great view as well.

Food was tasteless, we were tempted to leave it. Grilled burramundi was soggy and chewy. Non of the 3 meals tasted good. Service was very poor. The waitress was not familiar with the menu, she even could not understand what we ordered and had to be shown (English speaking). She asked the chef to come and tell us about the menu-he was impatient and rude. There was a very loud music next door and was abusive to the ears. The whole experience was very disappointing, I regret even driving there. Even 50% was too much for this dinner. Would not recommend.
