Great food, awesome service!

I was lucky to have had my last breakfast at Chantilly's Restaurant and Bar. I can highly recommend the fantastic food, diverse menu, and exceptional service... with a view! There is something to please everyone on the menu and I even tried something new.

Perhaps the best breakfast venue in town. Other meals are also pretty good. The steaks are nice, and you'll be pleased with the nice view over the water. Wifi is free and fairly fast. A must.

Beer and tapas right on the water. Bliss. A few good vego options, and the Affogatto is sublime. Staff are friendly and attention. Importantly they do not have endangered species, such coconut crab, on the menu. We walked out of more than one place that had this. It's not crab in coconut, it's a giant crab that eats coconuts, and... More

GO there. its the best breakfast in town. I have been looking for somewhere to treat myself and found it at last. The staff is amazing and the food meets the standards. For me no one touches it for the range and selection on its breakfast menu

I've come back from my holiday and have found myself craving a Tilly's breakfast smoothie, a lime juice and the chicken, brie and cranberry burger. Chantilly's is such a beautiful place, such a fantastic view and the customer service is great! You really can just relax with a coffee. Ten out of ten! Keep up the good work Tilly's team!
