Richmond Oysters has been in operation since 1959 so they know a thing or two about seafood. In addition to the company's wholesale and retail seafood supplies, Richmond Oysters offers a casual restaurant specialising in fresh and cooked seafood dishes. The atmosphere here is easygoing and amiable - not the place for a romantic dinner, but terrific for a quick meal, whether with friends or on your own.

PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
It all began about 50 years ago, with two brothers shucking oysters. Time passed, the business grew, and in 2008 it extended into a casual eating place somewhere between a cafe and a restaurant. The tables, with white plastic chairs, are grouped towards the front but the space is dominated by a huge counter that is a bar at one end and a display counter for fresh seafood on the other. It’s easy-going and amiable – not the place for a romantic dinner, but terrific for a quick meal, whether with friends or on your own.

A place like this opens up many possibilities. What makes a quick lunch? Try a dozen oysters at the bar. Whether you choose Sydney rock or St Helens, they will come on a bed of salt, garnished with lemon, and you’ll find that they are probably the cheapest in town, too. Fish and chips is a good option here, with the bonus that you can select your own fish from the display. Want pan-fried snapper or grilled salmon instead? Not a problem. Twirl into spaghetti marinara or pop some scallops and calamari into your mouth. Burgers come in various forms – with beef, salmon fillet, or a vegetarian sweet potato and lentil pattie. It’s honest, fuss-free and your wallet will thank you. The wine list is small, and most wines are available by the glass. There’s takeaway, too.

Excellent food at a great price. 1 minute walk from East Richmond Railway station. Time to get out of the CBD and enjoy some very good value food.review  09/01/2012
