Superb cocktails

The cocktails here are fab! The daily special is two for one - so two cocktails for $14 is an absolute bargain. Make sure you try the cosmopolitan. They were very accommodating with our chidren when we ate there one night. A couple of times we ordered dessert/snacks after dinner and these were... read more

My two sons and I had lunch here cos it was handy to resort. I phoned to book and they were a little rude. We ordered club sandwiches and asked for a few things to be left out e.g. lettuce, aioli etc. The waitress was careful in writing this down then handed the wrong ones to each person. We didn't...

The Friday night buffet of pacific flavours was a good selection of various dishes from the pacific islands. We enjoyed the fish curry and the chicken stir fry. But the poppadoms were the best - we couldn't keep the kids from going back for seconds, thirds, fourths...

For a small restaurant and bar they produce really good food with excellent service. It's part of Muri Beach Resort where we stayed with the rest of our family wedding party. Nothing was too much trouble.

Tried Aqua on our first night - nothing really to write home about. It filled the gap but wouldn't return. Lack of seasoning , flavour & service.

Really enjoyed my dinner with a nice outdoor atmosphere. Our server was very busy but very attentive to my party. Here recommendations were perfect and completed a perfect laid back night in Muri Beach. Also, this was our 2nd visit in the same day which was great both times. Lastly, I had the Prawns with noodles. They were very favorable... More

Atmosphere and surroundings were pleasant. I ordered the Garlic Lime Calamari and it would have been delicious had it been served hot, but it was cold. The service was somewhat slow and unwelcoming. I would most likely not return as there are many other better options in Muri Beach.

Ordered the bacon & eggs on sourdough.....well thats what it said on the menu. Defnitely not sourdough. Just bread toasted. Eggs were very undercooked....like practically raw still. Service was horrendous I had to walk around the restaurant trying to find someone I could pay. We never returned. I would advise people not to bother unless they were a guest at... More
