    You're probably looking at Eagle Street Pier, Jellyfish is just seafood but most if the places will have a heavy seafood bias on their menus eg the Italian places. Be prepared to pay though.

        both Il Centro and Gambaros are in my generic grouping of 'nice Italian restaurants'. I like Il Centro as it does an amazing heart-stopping crab lasagne, it's also what most people would consider a nice restaurant

          Many thanks will email and buy a voucher, my brother said the same about the crab lasagne
          Coming from the west coast of Scotland we're pretty spoiled when it comes to seafood

            people write songs about lesser things than the Il Centro sandcrab lasagne. For my money, it's one of the best seafood dishes in Brisbane
