Nice to sit looking out to sea. Cocktails delicious and lunch tasty. Nice relaxed lunch in the sun. Paradise.

I get it, running a restaurant aint easy. Especially when you have critics (like myself), picking on every last detail.

Especially when the food is under seasoned (a good sprinkle of salt would have done wonders... More

Have dined here many times over the years and consistency is always good. Good size serves with all menu items. Staff told us that there will be major renovations before Race Week in Oct 2014 with a Mediterranean theme. But the pizzas will continue.

We had a fun time here, our 2 year old was well catered for. We shared pizzas which meant great value for money and our son ate for free. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening here - helped along by some wonderful cocktails at the Yacht Club.

Lovely views of the harbour and a great spot for lunch but i do think $28.00 for a pizza is a bit rich and $9.10 for a Corona is a price you would pay at a nightclub.

We ate at this establishment twice during our stay on Hamilron island, the staff do need more training, but tried hard to get it right. The food wes average and overpriced the wine was again overpriced but o.k. When you are a captive clan, this is what happens, and they dont care.

I trusted a recommendation for manta ray's pizza, absolutely delicious. The kids loved the spaghetti menu as well so everyone was satisfied. Thank you George!

A really lovely spot to stop for a coffee, but it just lacks the choice of slices, cakes, etc, which is what we expect in coffee shops today. Good service, just nothing special and different to write home about.
