Good Quality Buffet with a Great View

We went here on Sunday evening and found the seafood quite good. Make no mistake you are paying for the view, but the quality seems higher than the Jetty. At about the same price this is by far the better food. I concentrated on oysters and shrimp, with just a little noodle and spring rolls... read more

Come here for the seafood. Oh my god, the seafood. Natural oysters, prawns, and mussels in a beautiful spread. Super fresh and delicious. You can tell just by looking at it that the seafood is excellent quality. The oysters were incredible. There were also kilpatrick available. And the chilli blue swimmer crab, I could have easily eaten a big mountain... More

Went there with a family group - food is average - service is ordinary, very hard to get a smile from anyone - "lots of rules that you have to follow" Value for money if you are going to eat a lot of prawns & oysters then its probably a great place to go to - there are other seafood... More

No charge for messy adult eaters!!!! How rude and discrimatory is this? In all our family outings and restaurant visits with our grandchildren / children I... More

Went out with a group of friends who are all restaurant managers or supervisors. Worst experience of my life. Seafood was not at all tasty. All the other buffet 'hot' food was lukewarm. The chicken that was supposed to be hot was cold. Surely this needs to be investigated by the council as they have unsafe food practices. We tried... More

We went to this place thinking we were going to a fish and chip shop. What an exceptional surprise. Buffet style all you can eat for $39. The food served was fresh and local. There were some imported dishes, but these were few and marked as such. There was the most tasty assortment of sea food. But also chicken and... More
