Fabulous position sets a high bar

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... read 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

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.
