We were using a Private Villa at the Resort & found a takeaway menu inside. We thought what a great Idea. We decided to order a potion of fries to take back to our villa & enjoy with our dinner. Upon receiving the large take away box I was impressed. Okay so it cost $8.50 but they gave a great... More

The dishes on the menu sound good but could be better. The lamb shank would be better if cooked longer - was quite fatty and sinewy and the risotto was glug. The service however was very good and staff are personable.

Very sorry we dined here. Food was very average. Service just ok. Laksa was terrible - thick and gluggy. Fish in the 'fresh' fish n' chips dish looked like it came from a frozen fish packet and kids mal of chicken tenderloins looked like chicken nuggets. As you would expect it was a hot night in PD and fans were... More

After a big day at the reef our family of five headed to the restaurant for an early dinner. On arrival we were surprised to see the number of other guests lounging by the pool, we were then told it was "Happy Hour". The happy hour drinks were very well priced and tasty. The meals also hit the spot. I... More

First night after long day traveling decided to eat in, bad decision. Avoid the laksa, sure it came from a can, the fish of the day was mushy and the roast beef tough and tasteless. The kids meals were fine. Enjoyed having cocktails and coffees around the main pool at other times.

We had a great night here, everyone in our party really enjoyed their mains and the kids meals were really good too, a good quality pasta dish full of flavour. Staff were very friendly and talked to the kids and offered colouring sheets etc. The desserts were also great. The setting is lovely and if a warm night by the... More
