We went a couple of years ago for breakfast and it was well worth the money and yummy (and that much I couldn't finish it), so we decided as we were in the area we'd go there for lunch, bad move. My husband had fish and chips and I had a chicken calzone, they were both horrible, mine was so... More

This was once a happening place, it's now quite tired: décor, menu, staff, service, etc. It's OK for a bite to eat, but nothing special. It's allure is its position along the waterfront.

We love the location of this for the little ones to run around. Service can be hit and miss depending on number of partons. Food is average. Way over priced for what you get.

Possibly the worst service I have ever encountered. Young inexperienced staff, forgot about us, reached in front of us to deliver meals, and to top it off , spilt a container of aioli down the front of my shorts when clearing the table. He food was ok, but the whole experience spoiled by the service.

Regulars here, nice view. Can wait to be served a bit long though, depending on the staff attitude on the day and crowd. Food is always good from my experience.

The Cafe was located right next to the water front and next door the the heli tours. Walked in and waited a couple of mintues to be seated as they were very busy at this stage of teh evening. I ordered the Salt and Pepper calamari in main size which was enough to feed two of me. But saying that... More

Wandered past and thought this place looked funky. Service ok but how you can screw up fish and chips at $24.50 is beyond me, cold chips and 2 tiny bits of over fried fish. An entree of spaghetti bolognese at $15 was lifeless and bland topped with Kraft Parmesan... It was disgusting. Expensive wine. We only ate it because we... More

Hard poached eggs on supermarket bread. $10 muesli straight from the packet - morning rise i think its called in Coles. Adjust your prices or put some effort into sourcing quality produce. Please.

I had a beautiful fresh salt and pepper calamari dish, lightly battered and well seasoned. Husband had mussels which were excellent. Service was slow however.
