A lovely venue

Had a meal here with friends while waiting for the start of the Flagstaff Hill light show. Had intended to go to the sailing club but it closed at 5:00pm. This restaurant had an interesting menu with all meals we chose being of a high standard. Good selection of wines and beers and attentive... read more

I always judge a restaurant/cafe by a number of things. This time I went for lunch with a few friends - we each ordered different things so it was pretty easy to form a view. One ordered the Burger sliders - the comment was 'OK, but they were rather tasteless and the pork was tough'. According to the menu this... More

One of the only places open in town on Good Friday for a meal. They were about to close at two but because they were so busy they kept the kitchen open longer. Good on you! A big dining room up a flight of stairs (there is a stairlift) with a glass wall overlooking the sea. An honest pub grub... More

My family and I visited Simon's and while some of the staff were quite polite, the owners/managers were not. In particular, the male manager was quite rude, aggressive and really made the experience unpleasant. I cannot comment on the food but I just think that the manner in which you manage a situation shows character. If you are reading this... More

I have been here twice to eat since I have moved over from the UK in January, and haven't been disappointed on either occasion. The first time was with my partner for lunch and we were lucky to get a table as it was extremely busy. The second time was again with my partner and 2 other couples for dinner.... More

We had a meal here on Valentine's Day. The view overlooking the beach is lovely especially as the sun goes down. We had a window seat which was great, there is also an outdoor area where you can sit and have a drink or a meal. We found the waitress we had was not be very good, whether it was... More

Realizing this is a surf life savers club, I expected fish and ships at best. I could not have been more wrong; friendly staff, steaks made to perfection, extensive wine list and staggering views. Highly recommended.

We went there for dinner...the staff were very friendly and attentive and we were lucky enough to have a corner table so could fully take in the view . If dinning here I suggest dinner before sunset so to compleatly... More

We had brunch here. The food was excellent and great service. Nice beach views. I would recommend Simon's for brunch. The restaurant is a little noisy and it was only 1/4 full.

I am not sure if they have changed hands or just listen to peoples opinions but they have definitely improved over the years. This is my second review from 2013 when I recently went there which has been twice now since my 2013 review they definitely have improved. As I said before you can not beat this place for the...
