Dined here whilst enjoying a two day break with some friends . Our cab driver recommended and boy are we pleased he did. We enjoyed a wonderful night at a lovely little gem. The location is directly overlooking the marina & out to the westerly sunset. Bambos looked after us in impeccable Greek style & the team obviously understand mediterranean... More

Went here with friends what a fantastic find by them. Fresh local oysters for entree followed by fresh local lobster treated with respect it was amazing, then I followed by great baklava and black coffee. The service is excellent and the view is stunning and food fabulous.

Had a wonderful dinner here with our three grown up children (two of whom have special needs) - our waitress was so natural and funny and made everyone feel so welcome. The food was terrific too! Will come back again and again to this little gem

After our trip up the east cost we had a nice dinner here. The sunset is amazing to watch!! Food was good just the can of bug spray in front of the waiter station was a bit disturbing. Service was nice but would need a bit more training.

Great service, wonderful food and the view is to die for. Superb. A window seat with the blinds pulled back shows a perfect outlook overlooking the marina. Sunset lovely and the lighting at night is special.

With the variety of food on their menu there is always something to please everyone, and looking out at the water, boats & wildlife adds to this restaurant's wonderful atmosphere. On this visit to the Bay it was just my... More

My husband and I booked dinner here on a weekend getaway out of Sydney to celebrate our 10 year anniversary - and we were not disappointed! The restaurant boasts a lovely marina view out to the ocean. For a Monday night there weren't too many patrons dining (possibly also due to the horrendous winds!) but the atmosphere was still lovely... More

Entree of Salt & Pepper squid with accompanying salt was delicious. Main was Penne Bascaiola and was pretty good- lots of flavour but the sauce could have been a little thicker so it stuck to the pasta. Huge servings. I'll go back for sure.
