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

I visited this restaurant on a recent stay to Hervey Bay with some family members. There was heaps to choose from on the menu especially for myself who is a vego as well as my daughter who is gluten intolerant.

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

Fabulous experience (even though two large Christmas parties also in attendance.) The meal was absolutely delicious. Well prepared, served in a timely fashion by polite, attentive staff. Large choice available...all food fresh.

Well where do I start. Greeting and menu presentation was perfunctory at best. It was downhill from here, the food was ordinary tending towards tasteless with a side order or rubbish. The best part of the meal was the wine, luckily the restaurant doesn't make this. We have been here in the past and enjoyed the meal, however it would... More

Having just arrived in Hervey Bay after a very early morning start we decided to try the lunch special - great value and even better food. This restaurant also has a birthday special but we had already make plans for that day and didn't have a chance to go back.

We've just been to Wild Lotus and have had an amazing dinner (best we've had in 3 weeks of touring Australia so far). The food not only tasted incredible but was really nicely presented and they were really attentive with service too. Every course seemed to taste better than the last and they had a gorgeous vegetarian option if it... More
