Went here on a number of occassions and found bar to be airy and clean .Staff were very good and other establishments could learn a thing or two about customer care from them. Nice interesting location allows you to view the the world passing by on foot or on water. The only complaint I have is the volume of the... More

Nice range of meals at a reasonable price overlooking the marina. Haven't been there for a couple of years but I enjoyed it and will be back.

Lunch was spectacular. I can not fault the whiting, goats cheese and the massive steak sandwich. Drinks are reasonably priced and the coffee and sweets did not disappoint. The staff were attentive and did not hesitate to bring more water or clear the tables.just a lovely long lunch. Booking is possible and the views are spectacular.

An excellent venue to take your overseas visitors and sit near the waters edge and enjoy the cool evening and outlook. I had friends from Vietnam and they walked every inch of the Marina and wanted to spend a day there as they remarked it was so clean and tidy and the people so friendly.

Great spot for a few drinks after work or on the weekend. Watched the sunset through the gorgeous marina.

I had the pleasure of bringing my 26 hospitality staff to The Breakwater yesterday for a staff party. Nothing was to much trouble and Teagan, who looked after us was fantastic. We were located in the perfect area for a casual gathering, a long lunch, both food and beverage was fantastic, couldn't fault the day, we were all made to... More

Had a function here. Efficient service, food good, environment lovely. Very hot evening, crowded room and air conditioning very inefficient. Nothing special, except the views.

This has a great location situated on the Hillarys marina with a vast array of shops and restaurants. Parking is nearby with a small walk across the pedestrian bridge across the water. We have eaten here before but on this occasion just came for drinks. It is clean and staff are friendly. Drinks are a bit pricey but not un-similar... More

we went to this restaurant for lunch yesterday. it has a lovely outlook over the harbour, very pleasant surroundings but my God do you have to pay for it. 6 mussels $16, it may be that I am a Brit on holiday and have found most Australian food and drink to be expensive but this was even more so. the...
