Restaurant was shockingly bad service - waited 45 mins for lunch (grilled barramundi and chips, 2 serves of kids chicken nuggets and chips). Waitress didn't like or tolerate children, yet was reluctant to give us a piece of paper they could draw on during their 45 min wait. She don't want to give my toddler a plate as she didn't... More

Stumbled across this building on the beach on our morning walk and found it to be a restaurant with the most amazing views of Fraser Island. So we went in and booked a table for lunch... The food was really tasty and the waitress was very friendly and was only to happy point out all the islands for us. We... More

We booked our Christmas Function a few weeks ahead & the booking was confirmed by a phone call. However when we arrived the tables were not set. The wine we ordered was substituted with no explanation or apology. Food took 1.5 hours to arrive. Having lived in Hervey Bay for over 15 years, this is the worst restaurant I have... More

My daughter and I stopped in here to have lunch and we were not disappointed. It was high tide so we enjoyed the view of the peaceful blue water, the sound of lapping waves and in the distance Fraser Island. Such a tranquil setting to enjoy our lunch. The staff were friendly and accommodating and were happy to have a... More

My partner & I stumbled across this amazing venue hidden down in Urangan right on the beach! We dined there for breakfast the next morning and sat right on the balcony overlooking Fraser Island. We were so impressed with the service, food & location of this venue that we dined there again the next day for lunch. A real mix... More

Don't try to get dinner reservations, this place specializes in wedding receptions. We had our wedding on the beach next to the restaurant. Fabulous evening thanks to Natalie. Where this restaurant also shines is lazy weekend breakfasts and brunch. Have been a few times and it is always a relaxing experience. Compared to the crowded Esplanade cafes and extended wait...
