Lamb shank, so tender & full of flavour. Salt & chilli calamari, melt in your mouth. All served by our efficient friendly waitperson.

We had dinner at Bombora on a Monday night. The service was great, food was delicious and well presented. Price was a little expensive, but we have come to expect such prices in the city areas. View was great overlooking the harbor as the sun set. Very relaxed dining. Overall a pleasant experience.

This restaurant along the marina had fast service and friendly staff. The food was stunnung to look at and tasted fantastic, the meals were huge and good value for money. I had the tempura prawns on the asian slaw, all of it was perfection. There was a good atmosphere with families and couples.

Great cafe style restaurant with a good menu with nice selection of seafood meals but also options for non-seafood eaters. We shared the Hot Seafood Platter for two. Really nice selection of seafood including whole lobster, Balmain bugs, grilled prawns, grilled Atlantic salmon, oysters kilpatrick, salt and... More

Went here for a breakfast. I could not believe the flavourless meal that was served up to me. The sourdough bread was so overcooked I could not cut it with a steak knife. The hollandaise sauce on my eggs benedict had absolutely no flavour. The bacon was stone cold. And who gives a chocolate with a pot of tea at... More

We came as a family of four and had a great dinner. Wait staff were friendly and very attentive, could not have been better! Food was reasonably priced and good selection of kid's meals. We ordered a seafood platter which was excellent and had a great variety of different seafood. Portion size was huge - couldn't eat it all! Can't... More

I have tried to eat there for breakfast, lunch or early dinner....So far the early dinners are winning because of value for money. Breakfast is not really for me...I don't normally eat breakfast so I would not be a good guide for opinion here. But the rest of my family seem to enjoy the breakfast menu, their plates are always...

This place was a huge disappointment. The food was incredibly bland and overpriced. The service was friendly, our food came out very quickly but was cold and soggy. I agree with a previous reviewer who said if they paid half the price they would still be disappointed. I realise we are paying for the view, but that $60 lunch wasn't... More
