Open Mic makes for a great mid-week night out

We went for the Open Mic on a Tuesday. Had some cocktails and enjoyed the music by some local talent. Although it was a very young crowd, the atmosphere was pleasant and relaxed.

We decided to stop in for a cocktail at The Pier in the midst of trying to find a reasonably priced restaurant in Port Macquaire (not all that easy). The bar had a great cocktail menu, as well as a big range of beers. Whilst enjoying the first cocktail we decided to eat there - both of us having the... More

Met up with some friends one of whom was playing in a Jazz Funk Band, obviously a meeting point particularly for the younger element, buzzing atmosphere, very good food and service, worth a visit.

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

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
