Specials Night - Well Done

Our group of 40 were impressed as we enjoyed the Wednesday night specials of steak or chicken schnitzel with salad/chips/sauce. Prompt and happy service. Meals were of a good standard and well presented. Special dietary needs were catered for with care. Recommended.

Dinner booking for four. Waited one hour for garlic bread. Premises very tired looking. Food very average pub food. Over-rated on tripadvisor.

We were staying next door at Flynn's Beach Resort so this was great as we could walk through the garden and enter via the back gate. We had a booking as it was Friday night. We were welcomed immediately on arrival and offered a choice of areas to sit in. We sat outside on the covered deck as it was... More

We just had a lunch here and it was a quiet time, but the meals were really very good - very tasty, creative recipes and generous (not bulked up with chips). The coffee was also excellent.

I was blown away firstly with the menu - it was so creative. Then when we all got our food (I got the scallop risotto with pork belly), I couldn't stop raving about it. This place was as good as many top restaurants in Sydney that I have been to. I highly recommend you check it out for yourself. I... More

I recently dined here with a group of friends from Melbourne and Sydney and we were surprised at the great range on the menu. Almost all of us picked something different and none of us could fault it! I had the Ribs that were marinated in a coffee and maple glaze. It melted in your mouth. We could not fault... More

Blue Water was recommended to us because there's a playground to keep the kids occupied. However when we went the whole back section was booked for a private party, and while the kids could still use the playground, there was nowhere we could sit and keep an eye on them. So we all sat in the bar area ... didn't... More

Four friends went for dinner on a Sunday and arrived to hear the last of the live music which is on from 3-6pm. Sorry we were so late arrived as what we heard was great.
