Good food and service

We had a party of 11 and had good service until we were still there after 9pm on a Thursday. I think the staff wanted us to leave.

What a beautiful meal. seafood and produce sourced locally when in season. Food was delicious, staff friendly, service excellent. We both had seafood medley, served on a bed of chat potatoes and vegetables with the seafood served in a light creamy garlic sauce. The sauce, which I was worried would be too rich complemented the dish to perfection. Loved it.

haven't been here for quite a while but will certainly be back ASAP. Everyone's meal was magnificent. Had an overseas visitor who wanted to try 'some fish' and on checking the menu on line found there was wild caught barramundi on the menu, so off we went to Wild Lotus for dinner. He was not disappointed with his choice. We... More

On holidays from Sydney and stumbled upon this place. Superb food (seafood medley and lamb shanks) and cocktails. The lamb shank fell of the bone and the seafood medley boasted some of the best cooked calamari and fish I've had in a long time. Staff were friendly and accommodating throughout the entire meal. For any locals or those passing through... More

We went for dinner here based on the reviews found here and we were not disappointed. We had our 4 & 9 year old with and the owner treated them so well and treated them just like us, they loved being called sir. The meal was to die for, hubby had the Seafood Medley and I had the Seafood Risotto,... More

Amazing food, great service, beautiful wine. I had the garlic seafood risotto, the seafood was cooked perfectly and the scallops were the best I've ever had. I would definitely recommend Wild Lotus to my family and friends.

The food here was absolutely delicious. I've had magnificent sea scallops before, but here they were more than magnificent. The Baileys Creme Brulee was to die for. I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough.

Every time we went past, this place was really bustling so we had to see what the fuss was about, and we did really enjoy it. Pushed for time, my husband & I only had a main meal each - the kangaroo fillet which my husband thought was excellent & I enjoyed the creamy garlic seafood risotto. It was nice... More

I hosted a Christmas event at the Wild Lotus and am looking forward to returning. Joep is a passionate foodie and his staff are positive and attentive. I received so many positive comments that we will be back again next year!

My family and friends had a birthday dinner on Monday 4th January. So many Gluten Free options available both as an entree and main. The seafood was all sourced locally and the meat is from Dale at the local Kawungan Butcher. I would definitely recommend Wild Lotus if you are looking for quality food and outstanding service.
