Fabulous Fresh Friendly

4 of us on holiday at Hervey Bay had a wonderful meal for my husbands birthday. The staff were very efficient, the food was fresh, the oysters magnificent. Wanted to go back, but will have to wait until the next holiday to HB.

Obviously mid of the week is not the best time to go for a dinner there. In almost empty restaurant we were seated in the middle and right next to the other guests....rather than giving people a little bit of privacy. It was 4 adults and 2 children (8+10) of us. Waiter (young lady) only offered their kids menu in... More

A large group of us went to Wild Lotus for lunch and everybody was happy with their meals and the service. We had a round table which was good for conversation. The restaurant is not very big but it has a very comfortable feel and the waiter was a pleasant young man. The food was delicious and reasonably priced, lunch... More

Spent my mother-in-law's birthday dinner at this restaurant. The food was fantastic the serving sizes was extremely generous and a good variety of different types of food was on offer The service was great also. They treated my mother-in-law like royalty as it was her 70th birthday. I have lived in Hervey bay for four years and this is the... More

We had a large family group go there this evening after a family members funeral for dinner. The food was very good, the service was friendly and efficient and the price was reasonable. The only criticism would be there is too much choice on the menu and the dish I really wanted was not in stock.

We went with our toddler and the food was good. I ordered chicken with red wine sauce and my wife ordered fish of the day - both were good. Our son went restless after a while and a waiter gave him a colouring book to settle him down. Very commendable service.

Recommended by a couple of people. The oysters were 'ok' but not the best for our taste. That said - the steak was amazing. Perfectly cooked to each of our liking and presented well. The service was fabulous and very attentive without being over the top. It did take a while to be able to pay however but that's a... More

Had dinner here last night, we have come here every year for the last 3 years and had great meals but I have to say that the food they are serving at the moment is the best. Calamari entree was delicious with very tasty salad leaves, I had the duck with orange and dark chocolate it was a lovely combination... More
