Had a nice table on the balcony when we came here for lunch. The waitress was really nice and helpful. We ordered the crab salad (of which they didn't have King crab, so it was substituted with local crab..that's OK). Also ordered a chicken burger. The crab salad was pretty bland with not much crab although it was initially deceiving... More

Good food, we were hurried though as we had kids. They said they were booked but if we hurry we can eat there. They served us, took our money, and we were out in less about half an hour. Not a kid friendly restaurant. Haven't been there since and won't go again.

Simple menu but food is very tasty and reasonably priced. The outlook over the bay is lovely and the staff friendly. Enough seating space, ambient and quiet atmoshere - easy to talk to friends - even in large group in the function room

Our party of four arrived without any prior reservation and were greeted and seated quickly. The restaurant has a central bar with indoor seating sections and an outdoor (al fresco) area overlooking the bay. We opted to sit inside (due to weather) and chose to sit in the separated area adjacent to the entry - which consisted of two tables... More

Beautiful setting on the beach at the Jetty Baths Inlet. Delicious food - I had steamed pork buns and asian slaw, which reminded me of Bali! Great spot for kids to swim and we even had dolphins come in to the beach!

Firstly I would like to say, the waitstaff at Vat 2 were very attentive and throughout lunch, friendly and helpful. However, it was a long wait before our meals arrived...approximately an hour after we ordered. Thankfully the children's cheese burgers came around 20 minutes before ours...but, why would you load up a child's burger with onion? This we removed. Finally,... More

We were at the restaurant with the whole family (8 people) and after 2 hrs after ordering we still had not received everything we had ordered! When we talked to the waitress to cancel the outstanding orders they told us that it was coming and they can pack it for to go. But 15 minutes later it was still not... More

Visited with friends for drinks which quickly turned into dinner. 6 of us all had different meals - 3 assorted pasta dishes, 2 children's meals and a vegan pizza. Our waitress was delightful, very friendly and attentive, letting us know wait times for the dishes. It makes all the difference to a good night out. The food was tasty and... More
