Lovely setting & great food

Unexpectedly first class ambience & food. Very attentive staff & a great food selection with many local favourites, changes with what's available. Also went for happy hour cocktails a couple of times. Lovely decor & views. .

I have spent a few nights there on previous travels and it has always been a mixed feeling..such a nice location, but "strange" owners. Now the ownership has changed, the new owners have totally refurnished the place and have great management in place. I totally recommend it for anybody. The attached Restaurant is operated by a great tongan chef and... More

We popped in for lunch and were blown away by the standard of the food, the service and general vibe. We loved it so much we went back a further 3 times in our short stay. The waiters are attentive and friendly. The one waiter whose name I'm kicking myself for not getting was funny and kind, taking my baby... More

I cannot recommend this place enough .. Great service and great food ... Reasonably priced as well. The wine by the glass is good quality (not from a cask) and the presentation of the food was excellent

It's worth seeking out the restaurant at the Seaview Lodge. You'll experience fine dining in nice surroundings. It's not cheap, but is very good value for money. Friendly and helpful staff.

Luna Rossa was closed so we had to find somewhere for dinner Saturday night. My husband located Seaview and we went with hesitations after a great experience at Luna Rossa. The biggest smile on the waiter was the best and off to a good start and our family dining experience just escalated from there.. The entrees, the main, the dessert,... More

Had dinner with co-workers and it served us up to our expectation. The staff was attentive to the diners and the food was delicious with very interesting presentations. The place was clean and quiet, which is what we were looking for! I really liked the atmosphere and I will definitely go back.

The Seaview Restaurant offered an average to good menu with reasonable to cheap pricing. The wine list is not extensive.

We arrived dinner for 4, first impression, very nice spot, everything was modern and clean, staff were really nice and attentive during the most part....received the menu, disappointed to say the least, everything was expensive with the average meal costing around $40, it makes itself out to be a fine dining restaurant with less than perfect results, the starters were...
