Excellent relaxed dining

The food was good and reasonably priced. It doesn't really have a water view as you would expect from the name.

We had lunch and dinner here during a recent trip to Port Macquarie and can't understand the other reviews on here. Admittedly we only had coffee and soft drinks but we thought it was very reasonably priced. The food was absolutely amazing (see pics) and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The open mic was a bit loud (and... More

Have been here a couple of times due to friends wanting to go. Has a nice atmosphere and live music is usually good but the beer prices are ridiculous. $12 a beer - seriously outrageous when you have no water views and getting nothing special in return. I am happy to pay this price if I am getting a great... More

Have been a few times recently. Atmosphere is good and live bands always add to the night. Grape and petal food next door is also good. Biggest issue is the price of drinks, It just spoils the night. I know its pushing a different market but you might as well go to Sydney and pay less at better bars. Unfortunatley... More

After being greeted by an overly flirty, BRALESS, bartender a few friends and I spoke to what seemed to be the most senior member of staff who continually called myself and my group of adult females "buddy". The pier is an over clutted, rude staffed, loud, dark bar that I left after the young male that cleared our plates obviously... More

A great place to meet for drinks but not a place to eat. Food very average and we wouldn't go back to eat there but happily to meet friends and relative again when we are up at port regularly.

I love this place! Although next to the sometimes noisey and bustling Pier, this place has great ambience and is laid back, cosy, quiet, great atmosphere and sophisticated. Great selection of wine and by all accounts, nice food but not had the chance to eat here yet. Attentive and knowlegable staff and the wonderful whiff of fragrant flowers fills the... More
