Somethings good things happen when you really don't expect them to. Such was the case when driving up the coast after a night in Eden, and then skipping some very uninspiring lunch places while passing through the country towns.
Just as all hope seemed lost, a strangely fortunate decision to turn down a street in Narooma, simply because there was a blue sign shouting 'Restaurants' (well, not really shouting, but we were starving and a little bit depressed by this stage) took us to what I think is the best seafood cafe I've ever been too. What makes it the best seafood cafe? Let's start with the location - right on the waterfront, overlooking the marina with a glorious view of the still water.

We also ordered the Eden mussels in a Thai-style broth.

Did I mention that the owner was lovely? No? Well, he also gave us a free serve of grilled octopus.

Another point for this place was that our meal came to less than $35 (including a coffee)! They could easily charge more for the quality of food they're providing, but if they choose not to, I'd be the last to complain. We've been told that the scallops or the baby octopus salad are also a must try next time. Now if only I lived closer to Narooma. Living in NSW might be a good start.
