Had dinner here - seated at a great table on the balcony so we could watch the sun set over the marina, and over Port Stephens. Starting with a couple of cocktails, followed by entrees of scallops and oysters, mains of duck and tuna, and then dessert. The service was faultless, with it being a wonderful night out.

My wife and I enjoyed a lovely meal at The Point during our holiday in Port Stephens. The view is terrific - overlooking a marina so there is lots of action and plenty to see, including the sunset. The food is of very high quality and the service was also to a high standard. Would recommend for a special occasion.

Arrived just after 7 as the sun was starting to set. Great view of the marina and beyond. Food was very tasty. Shared the Thai green mussels for entree and then I had the warm squid salad and my husband had the mixed seafood grill. This consisted of prawns, scallops, calamari and salmon. All cooked to perfection. Although the menu... More

My husband and I have been to this restaurant numerous times and while it is a far distance from where we stay in Shoal Bay it is worth the effort. The last time we went for lunch wanting to sit around for a while (as we were child free for the day), on our request the staff took the time... More

This is our favourite local! Staff are fabulous and helpful. The food shows the best of the local fish and seafood. Very reasonably priced as well. The location is amazing - can't beat a sunset with your dinner. Bright, airy and clean! This place is a gem! We will be back to see you very soon!

The setting here is amazing, with views over the small marina, the sea and the ocean beyond, this is hard to beat. We had a wonderful meal, we all ordered fish of various kinds, but I had the snapper fillet which was wonderful, it came with couscous and didn't disappoint. In fact we all enjoyed our dishes. The wine was... More
