we had a table of 5 eat here for a business dinner and what an amazing experience! the food was sensational and the view was even better. The only downfall is that they don't have wait staff but overall this was a memorable experience and i can't wait to dine here again. Well done!

Brilliant place for a group get together. Oysters flown in daily and fabulous. Rib steak on the bone was one of the best I have ever had.

Beer battered NT barramundi came with chips and salad, bit expensive but salad bar was good and you could fill up a side plate. Chicken parmigiana was huge so a side plate was needed... More

The food's good, the bar well stocked, the staff are efficient & friendly & the sunset's a major drawcard. What's not to like? We went on a Wednesday night, arrived about 5pm to avoid the sign in rush, had a pre-dinner drink while waiting for food. Dinner was enjoyable - fair price for a good meal. Sunset saw a fair...

For a casual lunch this is a top spot! Our group of 6 sat outside under an umbrella gazing over yachts moored in blue water and had a most enjoyable afternoon. Our meals were all great and served pretty promptly. Friendly people. Food and drinks at reasonable prices and when there was an issue with the tonic water being flat... More
