This restaurant is situated at Rainbow Beach Resort. The menu looked delicious & didn't fail. We started with some calamari, it was cooked just right. I had the rack of lamb for a main which was juicy & tender. Been to few restaurants at Rainbow Beach & this is the best!

We took a friend here for his 70th Birthday. The 4 of us chose different meals and all were enjoyed very much. Lovely atmosphere and the service was also very good. Will definitely return. The only con is the fact they don't open for lunch.

Great food - pleasant atmosphere - simple decor - high ceilings. My husband ordered Salmon and I ordered Seafood Linguini. Both were well-presented and satisfying. We would have gone again, but our stay was not long enough!
