We have visited many restaurants in Port Macquarie over the past few years and have had mixed experiences. I have walked past this upstairs restaurant a few times and have never taken much notice however it is in a prime location with an excellent view of the river. After reading some recent reviews we decided to book a table for... More

We had dinner here with our friend from Sydney. On offer on the night was the summer menu. The oysters were ok, the mains of lamb shank, porterhouse steak with prawns and the African chicken were all average. Nothing wrong with the food but nothing to write home about. Dessert was the same. No complaints here but after reading the... More

If I could give another half a star for our dining experience tonight, I would. It was good, but not very good, so not deserving of 4 stars. We had the $39 summer 3 course meal and the damper and dips for entree were delicious, though the younger waitress couldn't tell us what the dips were! My husband and I... More

Thank you to both Rob and Karen for hosting our Christmas party function. Nothing was a bother with organising this event. Menus were tailored to our requirements and the food was abundant and tasty. My colleagues were impressed with the venue; great view, service and food.

We ate here for breakfast and dinner, as a couple and extended family. Food was to perfection both times. Food size definetly provides you with calue for money and customer service is personalised. Balcony overlooks the river which provides a great romantic dinner ambiance. I would recommended all types of people to try this beautiful restaurant. It has the best... More

Had the light breakfast which was part of mymotel stay.Staff were friendly. The only thing that I would say to improve the dining experience would be for the wait staff to keep their eyes open for the little things such as making sure the butter and napkins are replaced when the last one is used, and to wipe spills on...

We stopped over in Port Macquarie on our way up the coast and a friend suggested we give the Waterfront a try. With little expectation we were surprised how much we all enjoyed our meal. I can recommend the Lamb but had hearty votes for the salmon and barramundi as well. Great dessert choices which we all enjoyed and Rob... More

We dined here recently with friends. It was a very quiet night so we got attentive service. We decided on the $39 3 course deal and were not disappointed. We had damper with delicious dips and then the salmon and chicken. Very nice mains with some veggies. The desserts were perhaps a bit smaller than the regular menu size .... More
