Nice food and staff

I enjoyed the meal and atmosphere at this place with my colleagues. Not huge portion size but good quality and very tasty. I had the cheese ball for entree and seafood for meal and both were beautiful. The parmesan garlic bread was different. Didn't understand why they have used big burger roles... read more

This place didn't look much from the outside but we had a very tasty meal here. Best seafood I'd eaten in ages. Very fresh and cooked to perfection, without a fry in sight which was nice. Would definitely recommend.

I recently had lunch here and was most pleased. We were seated promptly even without a reservation (will discuss this further at end). Waiter brought over water and glasses while my partner and I looked at the menu. I was pleased to note that the cutlery and stem-ware were all polished (no water marks). Entree was served in a timely... More

I can't believe there have ever been bad reviews for this restaurant! I had a three course meal of basil pesto beef carpaccio (entree), kangaroo with mountain pepper (main) and coconut and lime Panna cotta (dessert)... I also had the cocktail of the week! This meal was simply beautiful. There seems to be little 'fine dining' in Hervey Bay so... More

We ate here for lunch & were pleasantly surprised. The service was impeccable & the food was amazing! We all had a steak cooked perfectly to our choosing with delicious sauce from a choice of several. A wonderful experience & highly recommended, & only $15 a head!

Popped out for a rare night out with hubby and headed to the Wild Lotus. We've dined there a few times in the past, and have never been disappointed, but I felt our recent visit was the best. The staff are attentive from the start and settled us with a drink to peruse the menu. The nicest touch of the... More

Had my birthday party of 10 people here. Food was excellent, service friendly. Very clean. Everyone was happy with the meal. Friends have since visited and said the same thing. We will definitely go again as there is plenty of delicious dishes to choose from the menu.

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.
