First time we have visited Waves and it was delightful. A girlfriend of mine recommended it and told me to try the paella which I did, and it did not disappoint. The service was great and the atmosphere was gorgeous overlooking the beach. I will definitely make this my go to place from now on.

Amazing food and amazing place to relax on the balcony, we got the roast for two, it was sufficient and tasty with veg on the sides, i also got a chicken schnitzel and that too was very tasty and cooked well as a parmi, my mate got fish and chips and also mentioned it was worth it and the fish was nice too..
Overall the experience was excellent and staff were attentive and helpful.
I recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice view and food experience.

We went to Waves by the beach for a nice dinner on a Sunday evening. The restaurant was quite packed. The view of the setting sun behind the scene was splendid! The staff was friendly and we a great meal. Seafood and the sticky date pudding dessert were phenomenal!

We had a very nice lunch and the view was amazing, tasty well affordable meals with attentive staff. Sit outside or inside with the air conditioning, the meals are very well proportioned and won’t leave you feeling hungry.
