Fresh, Delicious Oceanic Treats.

At Fins we cook food in an innovative and nutritious manner. To achieve this we use fresh local herbs (often from my home), spices, wines and pastes.

Our seafood is fresh and local. Whenever possible our fish is line-caught. Fins cuisine is not traditional, but rather my interpretation of the best flavours and cooking methods discovered during my Australian and overseas travels. As all food is cooked to order, at times you may experience a delay for which we apologise. Our wine list has been compiled to enhance the menu.

Fins is a restaurant but really you are a guest in our home. Happy dining!

Wine.

Fins has proudly received the coveted '3 Glasses' award, Gourmet Traveller Wine 2016
We are serious about our beverages at Fins!

THE LIST AT FINS IS OF GREAT COLOUR AND HEART, MUCH LIKE STEVEN SNOW’S INTERNATIONALLY INFLUENCED CUISINE.

SUSTAINABILITY: THE UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT EACH PRODUCER PRACTICES IN BOTH THE VINEYARD AND WINERY IS OF GREAT IMPORTANCE TO US. WE FEEL THE CERTIFICATION PROCESS IS NOT THE BE ALL AND END ALL OF SUSTAINABILITY. EACH WINE LISTED HERE HAS HAD QUESTIONS ASKED OF ITS CREATOR.

EVERY BOTTLE AT FINS REPRESENTS THE BLOOD, SWEAT AND TEARS OF DEDICATED WINEMAKERS AND VIGNERONS GLOBALLY. FOR WITHOUT THEM THIS STORY WOULD NOT BE POSSIBLE.
