Oyster

We stock premium quality Pacific Oysters harvested both from South Australia and New Zealand.

 

Coffin Bay oysters – coined ‘Barossa of the Sea’ are harvested from nutrient rich waters that flow up from the Antarctic.

These oysters are freshly shucked retaining their natural brine. Pearly white to coffee coloured meat is housed in a deep cup revealing a generous oyster packed with a salty marine taste.

 

Clevedon Coast oysters are harvested from the N.Z. Hauraki Gulf when in their ripest condition. These creamy oysters are large and juicy – delightful served ‘au naturel’ or cooked.

Flesh can also be smoked or marinated
