Excellent place to break-fast, overlooking the marina. Prices are a wee bit stronger but then you are in a pretty special island! Food was excellent, service was efficient too. Will visit again!

Kid friendly place we went to for lunch. I had the saganaki and prawns, the wife had the salmon pizza. She liked the salmon pizza, which was quite simple. While the saganaki I had was quite sweet and generally off putting. The prawns were quite good but the accompaniment was boring and not very interesting. Great location and excellent service.

A great view out to the marina. Sat on the terrace and had a lovely lunch by the water. I think it would be best for lunch. It is just recently renovated so was clean and nice. Staff were very good and helpful..

The restaurant doesn't deliver during the school holidays so we picked it up and took it back to our accommodation. The pizza was great, piping hot, a little pricey but very tasty. Definitely would go back for another.

We only had to wait about 20min for a table even though it was a busy night. Both the maitre d and waiter gave fantastic service and the food was also really good.

The café gets very busy early in the evening- popular with young families and they do not bookings unless for 10+ people- get there by 6 pm or after 7.30. The food was good and service efficient- lovely views over the marina.

Fantastic food and great staff. Ben was particularly friendly and helpful. The eggs Benedict are a must for breakfast.

Lovely food but like all the restaurants on Hamilton Island, a bit pricey at times and limited menus.

Food was average, service was pretty terrible, and had to wait for a table. More reasonably priced than some of the other restaurants though.
