What a setting we had for lunch!
Looking out over the oyster beds in Coffin Bay, South Australia, we enjoyed a fantastic lunch at the dog friendly eating out venue – the 1802 Oyster Bar.
This upmarket cafe, restaurant & bar specialises in local seafood and obviously the famous Coffin Bay oysters.
The Oyster Bar has tables situated outside which are dog friendly, with some of these under umbrellas and cover.
After being seated, the staff were quick to bring Ash a bowl of water and fuss over our girl.
Coffin Bay Oysters
Iain and I have never really been big fans of oysters, until we started on our ‘Adventures Around Australia’.
One of the things we both wanted to do as part of our travelling adventure, was to experience the local produce of the areas we visited.
Hence the oyster ordering.
Are we oyster converts?
They were fantastic and we now are looking forward to trying other oysters on our travels.
Seafood Platter For Two
To really get a feel for the quality of the seafood in the area we opted for the 1802 Seafood Platter for two and a bowl of fries with aioli.
We certainly weren’t disappointed 🙂
The oysters were served naturally, along with grilled sardines, seared tuna, which melted in your mouth, mussels, prawns, fish, octopus and crab.
We can safely say we devoured the lot, with a rather envious Ash keenly watching every mouthful!
All this gorgeous seafood was pleasantly washed down with a bottle of one of our favourite wines, Rockford 2018 Alicante Bouchet, whilst relaxing in the sunshine.
If you find yourself in Coffin Bay, South Australia and hankering for a great plate of seafood, we can highly recommend a visit to 1802 Oyster Bar.
Great setting, great food, great service. Thank you!
