I tend to not write negative reviews because I prefer to highlight positive experiences, however you are going to pay quite a bit for this restaurant and you might not want to. Firstly you get there to be met by a guy who can't find your booking even though I can see it looking at the book upside down. After... More

Dissapointed. Overpriced food and drinks. Service slow and Staff had little knowledge of Menu. View excellent when you could see through peeling window film. The old "Red Lobster" was far better. Will not be going back.

The meals were quite expensive and I guess you are paying for the view. The service was not to bad. Polite waiters but a little bit rookie. The food was about the standard of a nice pub meal. You eould expect more for the price. Nice views of Glenelg and surroundings so. It takes about 90 mins to 2 hours... More

Came for an early dinner with wife and two kids (7 and 5). We had obviously picked a quiet night, not many others in. Arrived at 17.45 so got to enjoy a lovely sunset over Glenelg beach. Kids loved the revolving bit! Decent enough menu and drinks list. Took our own wine as BYO. Friendly waiting staff. Food was actually... More

Lovely views and it's really nice to be in a quiet restaurant where one can actually have a conversation with friends without having to shout. Service was adequate. Food ok, but serving sizes a bit mean and probably a bit overpriced; overpriced is normal for revolving restaurants however, so we were not too surprised and had expected that we would... More

I had high hopes for the evening as previous experiences visiting the restaurant were brilliant, but this is quite a few years ago now. We got all dressed up to celebrate my husbands surprise birthday dinner after I assured him that he would not be hot to find that there was no air-conditioning at all! We sat and sweat as... More

I booked for 3 of us; yet when we arrived smack on 5.30pm the table was set for 4. They were aware that it was my son's 8th birthday and wanted to be out by 7pm yet we waited 10 minutes for menus before getting menus from an adjoining table ourselves. There was no-one to take our order until someone... More

Went for a family group birthday dinner, the view was to die for as it was a clear night. That's where the joy ended. Drinks orders were like pulling teeth. Young waiters & waitresses seem to be visiting workers from overseas their accents were strong and barely could take our orders correctly. Took ages to receive our mains, I had... More

We recently went for a family members birthday and were very disappointed. Lobster wasn't available on their signature seafood platter, the wine we picked was no longer stocked, they ran out of mash for the pork belly, to get a drink we had to go and find a server and the toilets were disgusting!!! Pew had previously been a few... More

I took my staff here for a Christmas get together and we had a mixed review. The steaks were excellent and those who chose them were very happy with their choice. I had three types of fish and they were over cooked for my liking and the meal was only just warm with the green beans were shrivelled up(as if... More
