Love the location. Friendly waiters but service can be slow. The food is nice, not world class, but good for a casual meal and some local flavor. Fantastic setting in the harbour.

Been here many times, great vibe specially when the live band is playing. Food is quite expensive for the quality, service can be quite slow especially when busy. The other thing that really irritates me is the sewerage smell at the bar area - very off putting when you are trying to enjoy your meal. I would suggest going with... More

At the end of the ceremony I was invited with my wife to join their fundraising night next door in the Lookout Deck. We had a great night and an outstanding Pizza... More

The food was good but we waited for close to 2 years. We waited for close to an hour... That's as good as 2 years, isn't it? I understand that it's a big restaurant but don't you cater for when it gets busy?

We came for a quiet dinner for two, and got precisely that! We elected to sit outside on the deck in order to get the lovely evening views of the little harbour lighting up and the boats bobbing in the swell. It being winter, it was a rather chilly night, so it was nice to have the deck enclosed and... More

Great location. Good value for wine but we generally eat elsewhere. The band on a sunday afternoon makes for a great afternoon out. Curious seals plop up and down outside.
