The Freycinet Marine Farm has been operating for almost 20 years now. You can visit here to purchase oysters to eat at one of the outside tables or to take away. But there is more than just oysters. This simple café serves oysters which are prepared a number of ways, scallops (in season), abalone from a nearby producer, crayfish and mussels, all of which are simply prepared and served without fuss. Don't think restaurant when you go here but rather think of it as an outlet for highlighting the quality of the local produce. We were delighted on our most recent visit that the oysters we tried had not been washed or turned and still retained the flavour of the sea in which they were raised.
The Pacific oysters are raised in Moulting Lagoon and then finished off in the deep waters about 5 kilometres out into Oyster Bay. They produce Pacific Oysters and Blue Mussels.
They also have an outlet called The Fishers at the Devils Corner Vineyard.
