    Key words / associations:
    - Australia
    - seafood
    - wood fired / grill
    - local
    - simple (not fancy)
    - higher end

    Best bet is a name that plays off local words & terminology that are likely to evoke emotions associated with your goal position. I don’t know much about Aussie slang or what your area is like, which is a real crippler, so it’s possible some of these might come off as terribly, terribly wrong...

    That said, the general image your description conjured up was, for me, a quiet evening on the beach with catch-of-the-day roasting on spits over an open pit fire in the sand, so that’s what i’ve tried to target mentally. Relaxed, dead-simple, wood burning as you watch the rolling surf. (Is there some kind of local term for a camp & grill on the beach?)

    I’ve tried the gamut, from common casual to posh (but not necessarily in that order).

    I think you should use "Thank Huw"

    Because that's what diners will say when they consume your pristine creations.
