Nice view and friendly staff

This place has a great view of the Sandy Straits and the staff were nice enough but the food was a bit bland and certainly nothing to write home about.

Excellent food, excellent service and what a location. Beautiful views overlooking the water. Do yourself a favour - make a reservation for lunch or dinner or just go for coffee and cake and enjoy. You will not be sorry

First time to the restaurant for Easter Sunday Lunch after hearing great reviews. We were told on arrival there would be a delay of 40 minutes for lunch which we didn't mind. It wasn't very busy but there was a bigger table so understandable. The view from the deck is spectacular as was the sea breeze. We were seated by... More

We stumbled across this restaurant when going for a walk from our resort. The restaurant sits on the beach and has the most amazing views of Fraser Island. Staff were friendly and the meal was one of the best I'd eaten in a restaurant. I had the coconut battered Hervey Bay prawns and my partner had the pork belly noodles...... More
