Coast is one of those reasonably rare entities in regional Queensland, a first class restaurant with superior service and fine wines. The plate menu is superbly presented and bookings are essential as it has become the standard in the Bay. Not to be missed.

We visited the restaurant after trying a number of places in Harvey Bay and we were pleasantly surprised that there is decent food in Hervey Bay!! The restaurant is modern and trendy, but produces excellent food (albeit a bit expensive for Harvey Bay) in a tapas style arrangement that you have to be a bit careful about or you will... More

Went for dinner when it was blowing a gale. We were stuck out in the wind which was strong enough to be uncomfortable. Waitress seemed unconcerned. In the end we asked for our deserts to be made take away so we could leave. We'd had enough. There were the usual forced platitudes from the waitress, who clearly did not like... More

The meals were quite nice, service was really good. The only negative would be that if your just wanting a simple meal go somewhere else. This restraunt serves all different meals and they are meant for sharing.

Expensive price for poor quality/average food and bad service went a while back, $45 for a basic roast chicken that was overcooked. All simple, and home cooking at best. Don't recommend.

We dine at Coast for all our special occasions - you can't beat the unfailing standard of food, the service that doesn't intrude but doesn't leave you parched and wilting from lack of attention, and the location opposite the beach with breezes, sunsets and wide open to the bay architecture. We have been as a family, as a couple and... More

Simply incredible! The staff are lovely especially the owner who tells the story of this 4 year old restaurant that would fit right at home in Sydney or Melbourne . Wanting some fresh local seafood, we were blown away by Coast. The scallop ceviche was to die for.. Who knew bacon jam would make scallops more amazing?? The beef ribs,... More

We were only in the area for 2 nights and after eating here the first night immediately booked to return. The service from all staff was unwaveringly excellent....professional yet very friendly and helpful. The restaurant works on the idea of large dishes for the table to share and the Asian fusion approach worked remarkably well. The flavoured mayonnaise was superb... More

We booked a table for 8pm which was the earliest we could get. We arrived at 7.50 and were shown to a table, the food explained when we sat down. Immediately the waitress came to take our order and we said we had not had a look at the menu yet. We had to wait 10 minutes before she reappeared... More

Once again we booked here to entertain interstate friends and our expectations were exceeded. Why this is not the no one on trip adviser for food in Hervey Bay astounds me. Having eaten at the current no one there is no comparison! Keep up the great work as Hervey Bay needs all the help it can get
