I was talking to a friend of mine about about my love of fresh seafood. He asked if I’d ever eaten at this seafood place behind the Tooradin Airport, Wings & Fins. I’d never heard of it. I didn’t know there was a seafood place behind Tooradin Airport. Apparently this place serves seafood flown in daily from Flinders Island. Now that’s fresh! Why hadn’t I ever heard of this place? Naturally I booked a table the following weekend and off we went.
Only 30km from Dandenong we were there in no time. Up a gravel drive and low and behold, a restaurant sits up on the hill to the right of the airport – mind you the airport is the size of a school portable. It’s an airfield really.
Let’s see what this place is like!
It’s a bistro really. Don’t get me wrong, the restaurant is very nice. It became obvious though that the decor and fit out is not why you are there. It’s the seafood. That’s why the place was packed. All there for the fresh seafood. Now let’s order. Have a look at the Menu it’s very impressive.
I wasn’t sure what to order for our mains. Everything that was coming out looked sensational. The crays were massive, but I felt like some fish so I ordered the swordfish.
We closed the meal sharing an affogato. Refreshing!
It was a wonderful meal. The staff are friendly and the service is attentive. Nice gaps between courses. There is a huge balcony area overlooking the airfield if you wish to sit outside. It was a bit cool for us. Nice views from inside as well. We had a very nice evening.
The Diners Verdict: I suggest you try this place. Go for a nice long lunch. Jump in the car and enjoy the drive 30 – 40 min drive, then tuck into the freshest seafood you’ve ever tasted. Check out their Gallery
