Fodor's Review

Complete with netting and mounted, shellacked fish on the walls, Barnacle Bill's is an Esplanade institution, serving fresh, mainly local seafood to throngs of tourists: mud crabs, crayfish, prawns, oysters, wild barramundi, and coral trout. There are also Aussie specialties: try the Taste of Australia plate, with grilled barramundi, kangaroo, and crocodile. The wine list favors mid-range Australian and New Zealand vintages. Diners who order before 6 pm and depart by 7:30

get a 20% discount.
