Great service and great food

We stayed at Sunset Resort so we had morning breakfasts and ate at the restaurant 3 times for dinner. Everything was delicious and the staff are very friendly. Bbq Sunday was fab and the meat was tender and delicious. $10.00 cocktails were a fav of mine..

Everything was perfect, from the staff to the food to the drinks to the entertainment. We had evening meals here 5 out of the 7 nights and the food and service were top class. The daily breakfast was my idea of perfect - fresh tropical fruit, yoghurt, toast. Make sure you try all the different fruit !! I loved the... More

We had light dinner here three times on our visit. Lots of local produce and fish, well-prepared and presented. One night the staff was suddenly inundated with about 20 un-expected diners, and they coped very well. They were attentive and tried to keep everyone happy.

Beautiful cuisine set in a lovely restaurant based in the gardens of Sunset Resort. We ate here twice when we stayed at the Edgewater and enjoyed stunning meals with a brilliant wine selection. The kiwi chef produced tasty and well presented food making the most of local ingredients. Highly recommended for outstanding food and service.

We arrived late on BBQ night and were well looked after by the restaurant staff even though they were almost closing. This is a really pleasant restaurant, good food and excellent staff.
