Yes the view and food is great, though a little expensive. However the wait staff ignore you, after being seated at our table we waited ..... and waited. Eventually we had to grab a waiter passing by to take our order, and the same for the sweet. If the owner is the chef- then this is a common problem with... More

The first time we dine here, we were a party of 12 and had a lovely night. The second time we dine here. It was full house for lunch. 2 chefs in the kitchen, 2 servers on the floor that were doing everything from host to service to clearing tables. No manager on duty. No one to answer the telephone...

We had a great night at this seaside restaurant where my partner had "the best penne ever-ever"! Hats off to the chef for that! We both enjoyed the cajun chicken starter and my pumpkin risotto, whilst I would not describe it as the "best ever," it was definitely enjoyable and no complaints from me. The pavlova, and the sticky date... More

Agree with Wendy and Albie N. We were ushered to a window seat on a busy and wet winter evening and had the 3 course set menu voucher. While portions were not large, the flavours were great. The least expensive wine was $50 bottle, about the same as the voucher! Staff were efficient and friendly - Coffee cold and should... More

The food looks great in its presentation, tastes great, but the portions and menu prices [including wine] are out of proportion! We were dining on a discount voucher, which made the experience affordable, but we would not have wished to pay full price for our dish - a lovely seafood platter for two - as that would have been excessive...

The food looks great, taste good, but the portions and prices are bad! The staff are good, the coffee is bad, the wait is terrible but the views are great and that's probably the main reason people come back.

Meals were beautiful and tasty. Service was very good. Restaurant was quiet. Venison was chewy and returned. Second attempt better but still disappointing. I had major food envy as the other meals were delicious. Would go back but not for the venison.

Starters were wondeful, the main which was the eye-fillet was mediocre and was woefully small. Tthe side of roast potatoes with herbs and Parmesan had no herbs and Parmesan and was tasteless much like the main. Service was rushed and our main was served within five mins of the entree, when we complained they shrugged. Very disappointed as this was... More
