Dined here recently for dinner with friends. Service was very good, although as seems to be the case with most places, once the initial glasses of wine were poured by staff, they didn't come back to top up the glasses. However the food was great and well timed between courses. Highly recommended, although parking can be a problem sometimes.

What a great lunch we had! The food was quality and super fresh. Oysters were a special treat - loved them! And the seafood grill was just fabulous and great value. The staff were super friendly and helpful and didn't mind that we just stayed and stayed. And why wouldn't we? The view is TDF (to die for) and the... More

Had lunch there on Monday, service was just excellent, not over the top and not under done. Personal approach, attentive and willing to help in any way - impressive balance in service that just made you feel welcome. The views are very spectacular over the marina and the food was stunning. Mixed Oysters for entree were cooked perfectly, the Kilpatrick... More

Had family meal with 2 young children. Seated on balcony providing spectacular views of sun setting. Food excellent. One point which would have made a difference was the not so friendly waitress .

We were here for my birthday dinner and it was a great choice both for its food, its superb service & the beautiful twilight view over the waters. We started with the Kilpatrick oysters. For the mains, we ordered a seafood mixed grill - which included prawns, scallops, squid, salmon with Asian vegetable stir fry - as well as the... More

Only a short 10 minute drive from Nelson Bay, The Point runs true with other TripAdvisor reviews. Excellent menu choice, particularly for seafood options. Good wine list to match. Attentive service with tables offering a great view over the bay.

We order seafood platter and seafood grilled mix. Seafood mixed grill was quite small, only for one person but it was great taste. Seafood platter was large in portion but full of cold and fried seafood. We were not happy because it made us feel greasy. Spaghetti was great. The best thing was spectacular view, the best in Nelson Bay... More

We booked for a late lunch arriving just after 2. They were very happy to accommodate such a late arrival. Indeed we could have come st 3 and still been welcome. Fabulous view over marina and stormy bay. Our waitress gave us a recently vacated window table as requested and they set it up in a flash. The noise of... More
