Great staff, good food, reasonable wine list and nice setting. I can see that the best of the resorts wait staff end up in this restaurant.

We stayed at the Kingfisher Bay resort recently for a wedding and as the options for dining were limited we decided to try out the Seabelle. The restaurant is well appointed with modern decor and low mood lighting. The staff are friendly although the service is not perfect, no-one came to top up our wine glasses and it took a... More

We are sorry to read that our staff weren't as attentive as you would've like and will certainly be sharing your comments with the entire service team. Thanks again for posting. More

We went here for a special dinner. Food options were limited,but we tried the tasting plate which had an Emu (surprisingly nice taste!), Kangaroo and crocodile pieces. Small serving size though. Crispy salmon was very average. Pork Belly- again extremely basic. Deserts were good. For 4 mains and 4 deserts , without any drinks .. paid 228 $ ! People... More

Ate here with conference delegates and the pre-meal bush tucker experience was great. We had pre-ordered our meals and unfortunately the entrees were changed without our knowledge so the wrong food came out. But, this was rectified in the end and the food was delicious - the use of bush tucker was very creative. Unfortunately the service was lacking; it... More

Had heard a lot about this restaurant especially the tasting platter. When we got there our booking was missing. Took a long time to get a table and then food was very slow to arrive. Kangaroo on both the tasting platter and as a main was tough. Pork belly was dried out and lacked the crisp crackling. Overall disappointed.

The Seabelle sits at the top end of the three restaurants within the Kingfisher Bay Resort, so we chose to have an evening meal there as a birthday treat for my wife. The menu is not overly extensive, but local produce, including a range of wild herbs and fruits, feature prominently. Both indoor and outdoor seating options available and the... More

Dear Michelle4997 Thanks for this second review. We're great to hear you enjoyed your bush tucker inspired desserts with us in Seabelle.

I'm trying to keep myself out of my food coma to write this! Just had the most delicious meal here at Seabelle! Amazing flavours - great use of lots of Australian flora through the dishes! This is the only place for dinner on Fraser Island! If the pork belly is on the specials board - Get it!!!!! Worth every dollar!
