One of the best in Runaway Bay

I live in Runaway Bay. This property is actually a training school for the service industry run by the government. It is a beautiful property and the government has put a lot of money into it. They tried to make it a 1st Class luxury spa and overpriced everything. Reality has set in and they are... read more

Having experienced a similar partnership in Lisbon of catering school and restaurant we wanted to try this. We were not disappointed. The staff were very pleasant and just the right mix of attentive and giving time to enjoy. A very good value and well cooked dinner which we would say was top restaurant class for food and service for mid... More

This was our location for Christmas dinner and lunch on Boxing Day. I was rather impressed. First and foremost, this is a training site for the Hospitality Industry and the majority of the staff are students. Service can be slow but the staff are earnest and pleasant. Our affair was catered and the food prepared at the location was creative... More

Excellent ambiance with impeccable service. Wait staff is super cordial and efficient. Presentation of meals was top notch. Taste and quality followed suit. Set up on a hilly setting away from beach etc. Located in the suburbs...

Beautiful view of ocean, nice rooms. 1/3 mile (15min walk up steep hill). Friendly staff. They recommended a restaurant that was closed (they hadn't made reservations though were asked to). Hotel restaurant seemed understaffed. At one dinner we waited 1 hour (probably a little longer) to have undercooked ravioli with no sauce $20 US.

The food i had was tasty and not too expensive. I asked for something that was not on their breakfast menu and they went out of their way to prepare it for me.

This is the restaurant AKA Flavours Beach as far as I know. The food is good and for the most part reasonable. There is a bar there if you want to have a drink.

We travelled out of the main season and there were almost as many staff as diners. The dining room is on a verandah in a garden, pleasantly situated above the town. Given the fact the place was not busy the service was surprisingly slow. The starters were not overly impressive: mozarella turned out to be the grated for pizza variety,... More
