Arrived here in time for a few cocktails before the sun settled. It was an amazing place to view the gorgeous sunset and great photo opportunities. The atmosphere was amazing. We did not eat here, just had pre dinner drinks.

Unfortunately I found the chef trying just too hard to make a worthy experience. Weird combinations resulted in the most unusual tastes, mostly unpleasant. Example "goats milk ice cream served with grilled salmon". Trying just too hard. Waiter misunderstood my order, so off to a bad start there. Such a shame as the location is great.

The food here is yummy but not really specially yummy that you would think about it again the next day and crave for it. I think other restaurants were nicer around the island than here. But the facilities looked the nicest and it created a romantic atmosphere with my husband so I think this restaurant is good for going on... More

Amazing textures/flavors for somebody that grew up on chicken fried steak @ DQ in west Texas. Chic architecture. Nice foody hangout, and I'm sure it's even more impressive before nightfall.

We only had a drink here one afternoon but it's a nice place with a lovely view. A way from the marina/front street means it's quieter and the guests reflect that ambience. Apparently dinner here is very good but we hadn't reserved anything so went elsewhere.

The flavours chosen for the 5 course degustation menu were unique and delicious. It was the highlight of our 4 day holiday on Hamilton Island and we thoroughly recommend it to "foodies" who enjoy a long, relaxing dinner, savouring good food and wine. Watching the sunset from the Bommie Deck before dinner, while sipping a cocktail, was delightful.

What a great decision to save this experience to the last night of our stay! This is fine dining at its best. All amazing well presented by helpful staff who are enthusiastic and welcoming. Little surprises along the way add to the fun and make the night exceptional. The dining room is world class and feels like you could be... More

Ate at Bommie last night. Happy to say at least it is air conditioned. Decor is very nice as well as outside bar. Not quite sure about the chef's thinking on food pairings. I ordered the fillet of beef which was cooked to perfection, but blackened corn ice cream to go with it?
