Excellent in house dining!

Most hotel restaurant menus have the same things (chicken, beef, fish and a token vegetarian risotto) but this menu was varied, and beautiful. Mains around the pricier end at $36 but delicious.

Stayed at Aanuka Beach Resort for a conference. Had the opportunity to have breakfast , lunch and dinner at this restaurant over four days. The food and the service was fantastic. The staff really went out of their way to look after their guests. The steaks are awesome. Beautiful views from the deck, and the restaurant.

Left restaurant with advice that when restaurant gets it together they can deliver to room. AGAIN apologies, apologies from staff & steak delivered to room at 9:10pm!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Simply not good enough by... More

Tried several of the mains and enjoyed them all. The dessert menu was a little limited but enjoyed what we had. The catering for the wedding was really enjoyable.

Meals were small and expensive. Dinners are now downstairs on low standard tables with flies while the breakfast meals are upstairs on restaurant quality tables. Food could have been out of a tin with no bread on offer. No vegies with little meals. turned this local and friends away.

We had a late night dinner here as I arrived late coming up to Coffs Harbour. We had a beautiful 2 course meal with a couple of drinks to match. I had the strawberry cheesecake for dessert, I'd recommend it.

What a shame this upstairs restaurant is not opened at least once a week to introduce the service robbed dinners of Coffs Harbour a true big city class of restaurant and service. Make it a themed nite maybe of local foods and wine or establish a fine dining club here in Coffs. The view from upstairs, the quality of food... More

It would be wonderful to say the food lived up to the service and the view of the beach and ocean, but while I would class the latter as first class the food was only average. My wife was happy with her scallops main which is a plus given they are often overcooked, but my steak was a little sad... More

Breakfast was nice. The usual selection of scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, tomato and also cereals, breads, muesli and yoghurt and an excellent selection of fruit. The place seems small and if more people were to arrive for breakfast it might be a problem. The setting is very nice with a view over the lawns and beach in the background. We... More
