We went up to the bistro for sunset drinks but ended up having dinner here. The view is amazing overlooking the sea and beach! The waiter was brilliant! Very funny and keen on interaction with all the guest - very good service. My boyfriend had the best steak he has ever had, so we would definitely recommend trying their wagyu... More

We had an amazing lunch here. The views over the ocean are just perfect and a nice breeze is cooling you down. Food was perfect - tender prawns, great wagyu steak and lovely salmon. Go there - you won't regret!

We ate dinner twice at the Waterview bistro and both times had really high quality food prepared and presented very well. The bistro was nice and clean and service was great.

We had a beautiful meal here on Thursday night. We were served by Connor, a young man who looked after ' the Ladies' very well. We started with the grazing plate and moved on to a hot stone steak, delicious and huge and the chicken dish, which was lovely too. We shared a lemon cheese cake. The food is great,... More

Visited after reading positive reviews and following a holiday with some very average meals out. The restaurant is slightly tucked away up a hill and it would be a good walk uphill without a car, but the benefit of this is the extensive view over the bay.
