Imaginative menu, well cooked and presented.

Not knowing the area and arrving late, were recommended to eat here by a local and ate twice in our 3 night stay. The menu choice was imaginative and exciting and the service was spot on - just the right level of friendliness and service. We decided to have sharing plates so that we could... read more

Booked a table at this restaurant as it seemed the only fine dining experience available in this area. We were not disappointed. The interior of the restaurant is lovely and feels welcoming yet cool. The two wait staff who looked after us were really fantastic and added to the experience. They were both well versed in the menu and wine... More

Had a great meal, started with a delicious 'slider', then shared mains of half chook & half serve of beef ribs with a delicious side of Asian greens. There were also very nice pink grapefruit margarita slushes. Friendly service & a nice atmosphere made it a very enjoyable evening.

Four of us went on Sunday, March 22 for my Husbands 50th birthday. Three of us ordered the quail & one the szechuan prawns. All of the meals were of the highest quality, presented immaculately & with a sunshine smile by the wait staff. Knowing it was my Husbands birthday, when we ordered dessert, the young & upcoming chef sous... More

We ate at the Coast for our anniversary. The decor and location was great and you could have an inside table with air con, or an outside with better views of the Bay. The menu was not as extensive as we had hoped but the quality was good. Don't go if you are starving and expect a counter lunch style... More

I loved the sharing a plate idea, would be a fantastic place to dine with a group of friends. We had Whole Fried... More

Great atmosphere and definitely the best place to eat in Hervey Bay. The menu changes seasonally and is unusual in that dishes are shared. However, you don't have to eat a full meal. They do have bar snacks and their cocktail list is both inventive and, at times, amusing. There's nothing better than catching up with friends for a few... More

Lovely location let down by slow service. We only called in for dessert and after dinner cocktails and sat for such a long time that we thought our order had been lost.
