Good breaky

Great buffet breakfast and beautiful views. Plenty of seating so you don't feel like you are sitting on top of each other.

Went there with the in-laws for an meal with the kids. A la carte, not buffet. First thing was the total unfriendliness of the staff, seriously people, the place had about 15 diners in total and the staff were surly at best. Next, we had to ask three times for the kids milkshakes, in the end they had completed their... More

Came for breakkie while staying upstairs. Love the buffet breakfast, so many choices from healthy to indulgent. You can take your time and work through all of it. The view of the ocean makes for a lovely setting.

This restaurant was excellent motel fare at a very reasonable price. I love seafood and the seafood options were extensive. We dined ala carte however there is also a buffet available. Unfortunately on the night we dined, the seafood delivery had not arrived so the buffet was not a real option so I cant comment on that. A tip for... More

We have been to this restaurant previously and enjoyed the smorgasbord. Unfortunately we chose the set menu for Valentines Day on Saturday night. We didn't have a booking but managed to get a table due to a cancellation. We decided on the set menu. The entree didn't take too long, the main course took a little longer, but we tried... More

We have in the last 2 months had the pleasure to indulge in the seafood buffet. The first was for Christmas dinner. The 2nd for my birthday, with an overnight stay & breakfast in the morning I cannot speak too highly of the way the staff looked after our party attending to our every needs. The seafood buffet was excellent,... More

Travelled here for a Sunday Birthday Lunch with the family. The front of house service was woeful at best. One waiter seating individual groups personally I don't see as acceptable when there were 15 or 20 groups or families waiting to be seated. The food was average at best, some if the seafood was not as fresh as it could... More
