We had a look at the brand new Pig’s Ear last week, and now we’re sussing out its next door neighbour, Fish Feathers.
Being a seafood lover, I was pretty excited for this new restaurant billed as serving up top quality fruit-of-the-sea menu items.
Let’s find out how this place ships out.
The restaurant also supports sustainable fishing practices, which is something I genuinely feel quite strongly about. I will always happily pay twice as much for my tin of tuna if it’s been pole and line caught rather than procured through dredging practices.
Going for a refined casual dining feel, the centre bar offers a range of wines, beers and spirits to have with your catch of the day.
We kicked off with some steamed oysters which were served with an Asian vinaigrette and fresh chives. While I prefer my oysters raw, these were an interesting and tasty way to serve up these little guys. The slightly sweet dressing offset the salty oysters nicely.

- New England Style Chowder
The prawn and fish spring rolls were definitely something to write home about. They were delicious. The filling was fresh and very moreish surrounded in crispy pastry with a zingy sauce.
I’m not a massive soup fan, but add seafood and I am there. This chowder had that in abundance with scallops, prawns, clams, bacon and sourdough croutons. This dish made me reconsider my anti-soup stance and made for an excellent seafood winter warmer meal.
Fish Feathers is open for lunch and dinner, every day of the week. This oceanic restaurant also waves any public holiday surcharges, ensuring you have a whale of a time all year round.
