Tasting menu = amazing

I've said it all. The six course tasting menu included two entrees, two mains, a pre-dessert, and a dessert. Plus amuse bouche and petit fours! Decent size portions, the inventive menu combined scallop and pork belly with peanut butter (!), and delivered amazing fresh and delicious dishes. Would... read more

The outdoor bar is the best place on the island to watch the sunset while sitting in a comfortable chair with great bar staff. After dark this place looses its appeal. The expensive restaurant menu reflects the fact this place is top of the line on the island with most mains around $50. This is a special Occassion restaurant and... More

Bommie is located in the yacht club and the food was amazing and I highly recommend treating yourself to a dessert cocktail.

We went to Bommie expecting good things but unfortunately the food was really quite average. We had the hens egg to start which was bland, for the $27 or $28 price tag I really expected better things. Moving on to the main we both selected the beef fillet, this was better than the main but was still really disappointing. At... More

Bommie is the top end restaurant on Hamilton Island. The Service was exceptional and with a table on the window watched the sunset while dining. Quail would have benefited from a minute more cooking as it didn't fall of the bone. The main fish and steak where delicious and the desert heavenly. Best meal on the island and real treat... More

Bommies had been recommended to us by a Hamilton Island regular. Our previous dining experiences at other restaurants on the island had been disappointing so we were not expecting much. What a pleasant surprise! The newly arrived Spanish chef, Josep, whom we asked to meet, has cooked in a number of Michelin-starred restaurants and it shows: the food was imaginative... More

We booked Bommie for a Friday night as part of our week on Hamilton Island. The food and service were sublime and the flavours exquisitely matched to the wines. Served by knowledgeable enthusiastic staff, the food was a treat. Great surroundings and atmosphere and altogether a great evening in a little piece of heaven. Highly recommended for quality in every... More

Booked dinner here on the recommendation of our arrival concierge. Let me start with the good points which will not take long. The restaurant is situated in the ground floor of the modern yacht club building. The restaurant windows are floor to ceiling glass and dinners get great views of the marina. The tables closest to the windows are two... More

We had a lovely meal on Good Friday. Lots of nice choices on the menu, and the tasting menu looked good but we were already late at night so went a la carte. I loved the mud crab ravioli with peach and caviar. One of my companions thought the pasta a little undercooked, I thought it was just chewy perfection.... More
