Great location but long waits

Booked a table for 11 people for 1pm. Ordered drinks at 1.15 and food shortly later. Drinks arrived at 1.30 but food wasn't fully delivered until 2.55. About an hour into the wait, we were given complimentary garlic bread as an apology. The food was lovely, but when we had booked and this was a... read more

Really disappointing service and food when the location is so nice. I had the worst paella I have had here and very slow service. The paella tasted like tomato sauce and the chorizo seemed very low in quality. For the price I expected a lot more. Won't be coming back unfortunately.

After 2HR (!!!!! )waiting for our meal because it was too "busy" ( i can understand the delay... More

Yes I do, the view. That's the only thing that this place has going for it. The staff are lazier than a sloth on Valium. We came here for lunch over the Easter break and were disappointed as usual. They had adequate staff on, and the place would have been heaps busier if any of the staff had been bothered... More

Recently we dropped into Saltwater mid-morning and had just about the best coffees and muffins we have ever had. Beautiful coffee, freshly made muffins and fabulous customer service. The young girl who served us was so friendly, bringing water to our table when we sat down, chatting to us, and bringing out the best coffee in town. If you want... More

I knew chips were beer battered and BBQ sauce wasn't GF so asked them be left off. Was suggest polenta fries but I declined. The burger... More

I liked the food but when it's served by a surly attitude it ruins the whole experience We went to the counter to pay and were greeted by the young lady with 'what do you want?' I will never go back to such an unwelcoming place.

Had lunch here with my parents last Saturday. My pumpkin and halloumi salad is one of the best salads I've ever eaten. I like the casual feel this place had and being absolute beachfront the view was fantastic.

Waited 40 mins for 2 coffees. Breakfast order lost in the system. No real apology and still charged us for the coffees. As a local, we used to frequent this restaurent regularly, however disappointed and it appears that the new owners don't get it. Like many others we shall take our busiess next door or to Crumbz.
