About

This restaurant is permanently closed. In 1959, brothers Tony & Nick Anassis established a single fronted retail outlet next to the train line in Church Street Richmond. Whilst one brother shucked oysters and filleted fish for sale to local residents, the other established relationships with pubs and restaurants in and around Melbourne through door-to-door promotion of their wares.

From this humble beginning our small family business has grown to be one of the most respected seafood establishments in Melbourne. Today, Richmond Oysters retains its iconic heritage, continuing to operate from our original location. Our wholesale operations are complemented by our retail seafood display, take-away fish’n’chips and a world class restaurant dining experience.

We have made several reservations here, after first visiting the Richmond site. At no time have we been disappointed as the food is consistently well cooked and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The only surprise is that it's not consistently packed out and we've never had trouble making a reservation or even dropping in unannounced. The lunchtime $15 offerings are also excellent and worth a try

Excellent food, the service was good but a little slow. Had to pour our wine a couple of times. The Valentines menus was good value, too much for us.
The acoustics of the room are very bright, even though the tables were spaced, it was difficult to have Mitch of a conversation with the music adding to the sound level.
Overall a nice night.

After visiting the Oakleigh restaurant on Friday we will not return to either Oakleigh or Richmond were we go for lunch frequently.

The service was very good and our waitress was highly attentive and friendly.

All meals ordered were lacking presentation, flavour and freshness. The quality was very poor and very disappointing.

Will not recommend or return.

Food was great, service was poor though as we constantly had to follow up for drinks etc... When we got service it was friendly, polite and professional so maybe just some extra staff would have fixed it.

I purchased 2 dinner deals and four of us went. The platters for sharing were great, the waiters were attentive and the deals were very good value for money.

The food was presented as in cooking magazines & tasted even better. We were so excited as each serving came to the table with the waitress added her own piazzas. Yes, lm raving to everyone to try this place out. Yummmo!

As always we enjoyed the meal, this time we went for lunch and although the restaurant was by no means full we waited close to an hour for our meals which was disappointing. We liked going for lunch as it was quieter (only 4 other tables) than dinner which is busy and therefore very noisy in such a large space with very little sound absorption in fittings.
We will continue dining there as the food is alway top notch and comes to the table hot.
