Where to begin? Hubby and I chose to go to Settlers Bay for our anniversary dinner and what a mistake that was. We both have eaten there many times with the food and service getting increasingly worse. The night began with us walking in and being greeted with an empty hostess station, this seems to be something that they do... More

After golf we decided to eat at this establishment . I have never felt so sorry for a wait staff. Apparently , 3 or 4 had called in on July 3rd leaving them shirt staffed. They were working themselves into a frenzy. We luckily were not in a hurry. Our waiter , was running about and kept apologizing for everything.... More

I come here often. The view is amazing the service is great. My favorite is the spicy orange prawns. Always cooked perfectly! I recently ordered the schnitzel and the portion was more than I could eat. The chefs will greet you from their open kitchen and there is a very friendly atmosphere. One thing on my wish list is oysters.... More

We came with a larger group without a reservation and Settlers Bay was able to seat us with no questions asked! Let's just start with the beautiful ambience!!!! Stunning scenery in every angle. For starters we had a few cocktails which the bartender made perfectly! We had the seared Ahi tuna which was seared to perfection and arranged beautifully on... More

Went out with my husband and family for my birthday. He ordered the king ribeye. My brother in law as well. Both were asked how would they like it. Medium Rare both replied. When brought the steak it was WELL DONE! My husband usually never complains and sends food back. He actually immediately requested a new one because of it... More

We ordered chateaubriand medium rare and it came out well done. They did offer a do over but it took 45 minutes the first time and the rest of our party was almost done eating so we said no thanks. Our salads were soggy, the only thing edible were the roasted veggies. They actually charged us $10 each for 'eating... More

I have been here a few times and can't say enough about the food!! Delicious steaks and appetizers. Cooks are top notch. I am always disappointed by the service. The servers are slow to return to the table and are not ever very friendly. Every time I have been here I feel they are understaffed or just don't put any... More

WOW, what a feast. The appetizer Tempura Asparagus was absolutely the most awesome we've ever had. It was truly incredibly edible. Seconds were in order. My wife and our dining friend had Filet Mignon's and both found them tasty and tender. They loved them. I had a a Bacon Fettuccine that was absolutely out of this world. It was good... More

A great place to dine, any time of year. The view is second to none. The food is excellent. The wine list is extensive. A true, fine dining experience.
