A late decision to stroll from Abell point marina to CSR for dinner as Sorrentos had a group booking, and we weren't disappointed. Maitre'd welcomed us well without a reservation we were well looked after and offered a choice of tables. Meals were very well presented, photograph material, but we resisted the urge! We learnt after the first course this... More

Eating excellent food whilst looking out over Airlie Bay is a great way to spend an evening. We took the pork and the vegetable tart tatin with sides of chips and seasonal vegetables. Both very good, helped by 2 glasses of cold riesling and good service But the price! We paid 131 A$ including a beer and a glass of... More

The restaurant failed to live up to expectations this time. Greeted with "How ya going today guys?" in my opinion is not in keeping with a 4.5 star resort. Neither is a grubby and stained shirt. The service was indifferent and the food wasn't anything special, especially for the prices. To top it off our tab was misplaced so we... More

If you want to experience the best views, delicious food and great service you need to dine here when visiting the Whitsundays. Better still stay at Coral Sea Resort, Airlie Beach.

We stumbled onto this restaurant for lunch during a walk along the beach. The venue overlooks the pool and water and is very relaxing. We had lunch mains and two drinks. Everything was gastronomic. It came to $67. Not inexpensive but we felt it was worth every penny.

This restaurant is part of the Coral Sea Resort. We struggled to find a suitable restaurant in Airlie Beach itself and decided to try the Clipper. The food was excellent and the service friendly and efficient. We ended up having dinner there twice in our three night stay. As well as the good food the restaurant provides a lovely atmosphere...

Enjoyed the most scrumptious meal at this restaurant. Is lovely to sit back overlooking the water as the sun goes down, dining on wonderful food

This is my first review under four stars so I'm far from fussy, but unfortunately this place has potential but is let down. $49 for a surf and turf is ridiculous. The food is good but the prices, cmon guys, after asking for a dessert menu we waited twenty minutes for someone to take our order and ended up just... More
