I had a dinner and breakfast at the restaurant whilst staying at the Shangri La. I found the staff as a whole to be knowledgeable, friendly and professional. For dinner I had an entree of crocodile spring rolls! Whilst very tasty, one of them was very cold in the middle and ruined the experience. The main of barramundi redeemed the... More

We ate here last Saturday night overlooking the harbour during a monumental thunderstorm. The location was superb. We were served swiftly by lovely staff. My husband had the crocodile spring rolls which were delicious and I had the seared tuna done to perfection with a delicious egg mayonnaise on green bean salad. To follow there was a great choice, we... More

It's like you are on holidays ... But the best part was as I ask for the bill and a stunning local discount was add so... More

The food, exceptional!!! The seafood platter (hot & cold) is best value in town, & my steak cooked exactly how I ordered it. The wine list could be improved, but the... More

Whilst the food may be OK, the wine list is dreadful. Truly basic offerings by the glass and not much choice by the bottle. For a restaurant that has "Wine" in its title, you expect a much better choice of good wines. We ended up leaving and ate elsewhere.

Was staying at Shangri-La and headed down for a bite to eat - food was of good quality without being exceptional, but was an excellent view I do say, would be great around sunset. Would ask for a table outside as inside you would have to ask why you are there

We made a reservation at this restaurant 10 days in advance. I went to great details to explain that we were meeting people from Western Australia for the first time and having been here before could we have a special table overlooking the marina. It was special alright turns out they could not even find my reservation, I had even... More

Impeccable service, and genuinely catered and cared for small kids! Wish we had a longer stay so we could have enjoyed more of the food!

We celebrated our Silver Wedding Anniversary dinner at this restaurant last week and they served us a complimentary glass of champagne each. We dined on the Seafood Tower for 2 which was just amazing!!! The view was incredible and our wonderful waitress, Suzann, went above and beyond with her friendliness. Would recommend this restaurant with 100% satisfaction!!!!!
