I don't like writing negative reviews. So let's start with a positive. We had the seafood chowder for entree and it was excellent. It is their signature dish and they do it well. Now for the negatives. We went there for dinner on a cold night and the place was cold. We had to keep our jackets on. The people... More

Disappointed with all our meals. Fillet steak was chewy, scallops were rubbery, vegetables were of poor quality and cold, paid extra money for prawns on our steak (surf & turf). Unfortunately, one diner ordered prawns which were substituted with scallops to which she has a significant allergy. This was reported to the waiter to notify the chef that it could... More

Nice location with good choice of seafood options. Wasn't particularly keen on the oily fried seafood however, the seafood was fresh.

Honestly had such high expectations prior to eating here, the sign said they served lobster/crayfish and when we arrived you had to order it 24 hours in advance. The menu was ok but the service and food was fairly average. Friendly staff but very slow. It could be so great, and appears like it may have been at some stage... More

Ate here a few times while in Bicheno and really enjoyed the seafood chowder and the crayfish mornay. (You will need to pre-order the cray!) Friendly staff and a great view of the bay too.

There are not that many great restaurants in Bicheno. The Sealife Centre on the Bay is an exception. My wife and I enjoyed a good meal there with an excellent view. It is to be recommended.

We went there for lunch with a group of 11. We were originally seated inside but it was very hot and stuffy so transferred out to the deck which was great. Portion sizes are good and food was very nice. Service was good also. I would go back there again.

Just had one of the best meals ever at Sea Life Centre Restaurant. Lobster caught today from local fisherman with the owner Peter making his own amazing salad. If you are heading this way do not miss out
