Mid week lunch for 4 people. Entree ok, nothing special. Mains totally disappointing, Spaghetti marinara sauce very bland, half bug on the side was as dry as. Atlantic salmon good but over cooked. Fortunately my friend likes it that way so she was happy with it. The barramundi had no macadamia crust - just a sprinkling of crumbs that had... More

We went on a Sunday evening and our meals were of adequate portions. The food was fresh and the fish was cooked to our requests. The service was unobtrusive but attentive throughout the meal. There are good views to the east over the bay, over Manly Marina, and to the west over the suburban houses. The décor etc. is in... More

I asked before I booked a birthday lunch forMelbourne Cup day if they were having a Melbourne Cup luncheon. The gentleman I spoke with said yes. I advised I was not interested in a set menu, he advised there would be no problem ordering from the standard menu. We arrived & were given a complimentary glass of champagne. Immediately I... More

No disabled access and a kerb to negotiate for elderly patrons. OK, so we had a voucher. No disgrace in that, or maybe there was? We had a pre-booked lunch organised, however, we received a very offhand reception by a lacklustre waitress and we were refused a vacant table for two which had a view of the Manly Marina. It...

This Dinner was organised for me for Fathers' Day, but for some reason someone forgot to tell us that they are not opened on Mondays when we booked. I called back later to book for another day, which was logged in. On the night, everything started well, even when I have noticed some bad attitude from the guy looking for... More

We booked for four on a Friday night. The decor and atmosphere is OK. The restaurant was not too busy and we did not have long to wait for meals. I must say the service was very good and at no stage did we have to call the waiter, nor did he intrude either. The food was very good and... More

My wife and I visited Wilson's Boathouse seafood restaurant on Wednesday 14 August for lunch, I had heard about the place for a while and decided to check it out instead of fighting the crowd at the "Ekka" The service was quite good, somewhat laid back but in keeping with the general décor of the venue. The most outstanding feature... More

We had a very large table and they totally stuffed us around. From trying to work out who had what to even waiting half an hour for a birthday cake to come out. Kids were falling asleep waiting. A $30 whiting meal looked like a kids meal at the local pub! Then there was the cleanliness of the place. Toilets... More

We were given a voucher for 2 for a neptune platter as a Christmas gift as we love our seafood. We excitedly checked the menu and looked forward to an interesting meal. Sadly this was nothing like the case. 4 of the elements of the Neptune platter advertised on their menu were missing- no petite bouilabaisse, no chilean snow crab... More
