I had first visited this venue when it was in the main street. I must say it was fantastic for popping Un and grabbing a coffee. Sadly my first visit ended up with hair in my food. 6 months later I had visited but was sad to find out they had moved to the warf. For those who are visiting... More

This is a terrific funky place on the marina. The food is fabulous and well priced, with an interesting menu choice. Service from the lady at the bar was particularly good. You must visit at least once if visiting Bowen and try their muffins, great for takeaway to eat later.

I had a nice meal, lamb backstaps with Greek salad although my companions were not so happy with their meals, jerk chicken texture was 'strange' rubbery and jellyish. Rump was good. Red emperor wasn't all that good, too much sauce. Cosy atmosphere with nautical decor and fairy lights, candles lit around the room and very good service. Desserts were hit... More

Stayed in Bowen for 10 days and had 2 meals here. Lunch was great accompanied by a Mango Smoothie. Its the best smoothie I have ever had, a must when you are in Bowen. Went back for dinner on a Friday night and also had a fabulous meal. Would definitely recommend, but it is a little expensive
