Barnacle Bill's Seafood Inn

Barnacle Bill's Seafood Inn 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.
