Lunch was nice - relaxed feel

We ordered barramundi and chips and I have to say - fantastic portions and fish was quite nice! (A little tough and maybe not as fresh as I would have liked) and nice and thick portions however. What let this experience down were the little things, such as having to get your own cutlery... read more

Probably our favourite place to have a drink amd relax. Love the lounges with the big fans where you can sit and watch sport. The atmosphere is nice and relaxing and you could easily spend and afternoon here. We did have dinner which was disapointing steak wasnt cooked very well salad was limp and soggy. We stayed and listened to... More

My partner and I have stopped here a few times for a few drinks as its a nice location. Went back another time as we thought we would try a meal. Service wasn't the greatest seemed like just didn't wanna be there and the meals weren't great but they weren't bad. Stick to just haven a beer there I think.

Love the live music, laid back atmosphere , friendly staff and the food is definitely better than your average pub meal. The steaks are always top notch

Great for a drink and to listen to some good quality local performers. We didn't eat here this time but food looked ok.

Don't expect much on quality and don't expect it with a smile. The food is (just) okay and it's quite expensive as you expect from a pub in a tropical paradise. Go for the location.
