Probably one of the only places in the entrance that has a lot of local fresh seafood. Some of the items on the menu aren't that cheap 30 plus for mains but for a special occasion location is awesome! Really great view and food is fresh, one of the best places for seafood on the coast

We were given a gift voucher to this restaurant & were told how great it was. Well we were sadly disappointed. We ordered a seafood platter & when it arrived it was very light on in regards to the food, it was probably enough for my husband to eat on his own. We had asked the waitress if she thought... More

It was a busy day, with one large table of patrons: given this the service was extremely good. We opted for 3 course set menu, which was quite good value. The flavours in entre and mains were all delicious. Mains were small serves, but when having 3 courses more than adequate. Dessert was a let down . The fig and... More

Meals are lovely, service very good and a view to die for. You just ask for a window seat. I think more option for non seafood eaters but overall always a trusted great meal particularly for a special occasion

Visited on Christmas Eve for a special birthday dinner for my husband. The view is spectacular and the service was fantastic. The cocktails were also delicious. The food on the other hand was a major let down. We had a seafood platter for 2, which was meant to be a variety of hot and cold food, it was all cold... More

A lovely restaurant for a special occasion. Some attitude with disjointed yet overall professional service. They ran out of oysters and forgot to tell us until after we ordered. Beautiful views and location.

Wed. 7 Dec. 16 - A group of friends (about 20) chose and booked this restaurant for a Christmas Luncheon. We were required to pay $10/head deposit which was understandable. We all arrived on time @ 12:30pm, ordered drinks & read the special Christmas set price menu. It should be mentioned that there was one other group of about 10... More

Dined here last night with six of us. Had booked a few weeks in advance and asked about seafood platters and window seating (was not guaranteed window but was given one). Beautiful views of course. We all had different starters/entrees (am not sure what the difference is?) Everybody enjoyed them. We then ordered two hot/cold seafood platters plus another cold... More

On booking over the phone we asked for a table by the window upon which we were advised that it "gets very hot by the window". We opted to stay with the window table booking. On arrival the only waitress/floor staff/cashier/manager/drinks waiter pointed us in the direction of the last available window seat of which there were six with all... More
