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

Would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. Out of 6 people only one said is was ok but not great. Over priced with no flavour. Bread was in my opinion was deep fried and the dips no taste. They sent out a sauce for the lamb that was burnt. Steaks (and there was 3 ) were cold but on a... More

overpriced with very average food, the coffee was undrinkable but the views were amazing. Go for a glass of wine, leave when you are getting hungry.

breakfast buffet is average at best with minimal choice. Lunch and dinner options ok, but cheaper and better outside of resort, which we were happy to go with each day.

A really lovely setting but spoilt completely by terrible service. My husband had to fetch our bottle of wine from the bar so that we could enjoy it with our dinner. Overcooked salmon that was not at all that reasonably priced. Ended up canceling our cheese plate as it just took too long to arrive... Would not come back!

We stayed at the Anuka beach resort in which Finz is located. The breakfast buffet was $27 per person and having stayed at many resorts we were expecting a great breakfast. However, it was the most disappointing and tasteless buffet we had ever had. The selection and presentation of the fruit was terrible. There was only one toaster so it... More
