After wandering for ages, we settled on Rattle n Hum because of the varied menu and because it looked ok, quite busy for a late lunch time. Food is ordered at the bar and you are given buzzers for when it is ready. Be warned, if you order pizza, you will get a separate buzzer. The consequence of this is... More

Not far from the lagoon and harbor....the wood fired pizza oven was right out front and smelled so good we had to stop. We were very pleased with our smoked salmon pizza. Staff were very pleasant.

Meals were great and came out very quick, even though the place was packed out. Seafood platter was amazing. As was the reef n beef. Well worth the money.

Ordered ribs and they were very generous portions with decent flavour. Not up to rubs n rumps standard though. Service somewhat lacking. Table sticky on arrival. Had a great time with friends.

This bar/restaurant is quite peaceful at lunchtime, but in the evening it is absolutely throbbing. We had lunch there one day and were delighted with the quality. (The quantity was also more than adequate.) Altogether, better than average.

Every time we went by this place, it was packed; we decided to give it a try since it must be excellent. We both ordered fish and chips. The fish was good but the inside of the cooked batter crust was soggy and the entire thing was pretty greasy. The French fries were good. As typical in Australia, you must... More

Came here to enjoy their patio, and was lured to stay by their friendly and cute waitresses. Only to learn they aren't waitresses at all, merely 'eye candy'. You have to go inside the restaurant, order food at a counter, get a pager, and then go pick up yourself. Then if you want drinks, the bar is self-service as well.... More
