We had a wonderful meal at Coast for Valentines Day. They had a set 3 course meal with a choice of entree & main course, with a dessert platter to share. We both had the prawn entree , which had a delicious lime Thai type dressing. The Beef cheeks main was gorgeous. The meat was so tender & moist. My... More

We thought this restaurant was overpriced and not particularly special at all. The slow roasted belly pork was soggy throughout and some of the pieces were virtually all fat. Main courses come on their own so you then have the extra expense of vegetables. Staff and service were good but we would not go again.

There is no argument that the prices here are a bit more than most places in Hervey Bay, but the food is worth it. The service is quite professional and the slightly different 'shared' dishes are explained by the wait staff. The range of choices is somewhat limited, but inventive, tasty and in reasonable portions.

On the esplanade great location. Staff sometimes though a little ho hum seem a bit disinterested. Meals were nice, we tried a half dozen different share plates although not very large. Typical big plate little food. I my opinion if you want somewhere fancy and with a view, this is the place. If you want a good sized meal at... More

"This is a sharing restaurant" she said. Serves 2-4 said the menu. We were 5. Bad luck I guess. Bread with oil was from Brumbies and a worse sour dough I have never tasted. Came with some flavourless oil. Entrees were whiting and a pumpkin risotto which was quite good, but the $25 serving for four of whiting was 4... More

Walked in to what was hotter than a Mexican desert. It was hotter inside than it was outside- no fans and an aircon that was switched off. Ordered a expresso martini that I had to order twice.. That finally arrived at my table hot and with a disgusting film over it. The food was over priced as if they had... More

Was recommended to go here - which is always a risk - but in this case worth it. Service staff excellent food and beer selection v good. Service staff could recommend different taste of beers - they were on the nail. Went for 4 starters all very very good. Probably the best in the area .

Thankfully we came across this great restaurant while visiting Hervey Bay. We struggled to find any good restaurants in town and then we found Coast. Great food cocktails and staff. We ate her twice and on both occasions found the food to be outstanding and consistent. Great value for money and the staff are very welcoming and friendly. We also... More
