GREAT VIEW, PLEASANT STAFF AND TASTY FOOD.

We were a group of 6 who arrived about 9pm on a Wednesday evening. The staff were very accommodating and efficient. To speed things up and make it simple we ordered the house selection of dishes. The wine list is adequate and prices are about double bottle shop which is almost standard nowadays... read more

We came here for a romantic dinner on the water. We had the choice of a few places as you're aware of on the waterfront in Geelong. The menu and location spoke for itself and coming here was a no brainer. Upon arrival it took at least 5 minutes to get someone's attention to seat us in an empty restaurant.... More

Good Afternoon, Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased you were impressed by our spectacular location, it truly is beautiful out here on the pier. Sorry to hear you did not enjoy the flat head tails. I can ensure you we offer the fish as a grilled option upon request. The tartar sauce doesn't have any garlic in it... More

Have eaten here on several occasions and the service and food quality has always been of a high standard. Restaurant itself is on the Pier and a window seat will have you looking over the ocean......... on a choppy day can make you feel a little nauseus, we just moved up the table a little and didn't look down !...

Located on the end of Cunningham Pier you feel like you are dining on the water. Food was spectacular matching the views. We chose to have the chef selection which gave us a range of dishes, each one amazingly presented and delicious. No shortage of food, roll me home! Only issue was the wait staff that seemed to be stretched... More

The restaurant is situated on a platform on water linked to land by a bridge. Parking was quite difficult as it is a popular spot. You can get a beautiful view of the sea and sunset while having dinner. Food is good and service is prompt. We ordered a main meal each and added a seafood platter. The waitress did... More
