This is a glorious physical position with 270 degrees of water views wrapping around the building. The personal touch and service by Tiff and her staff is supplemented with delicious food, beautifully presented, and add the extra service afforded by Zara from the Bar within this treasure-of-a-location, and you have a good reason to visit this establishment each and every...

The best coffee in Bowen, the best views of any restaurant just about anywhere - overlooking the boat harbour - and the food is always fresh and light with plenty of options for different dietary needs. Lovely decor all round pleasant way to spend the morning having brunch with friends

i've eaten here a few times now, the marinara is the best I've eaten, lovely sitting outside on the deck enjoying the breeze across the bay and watching the yatchs return from the afternoon regatta. Thorughly enjoyed the oysters with the freaks salsa tonight.

Decided to try this place for a Sunday lunch whilst passing through Bowen. Once found (it’s located at the Yacht Club) with a carpark full of cars was a good sign. The menu had an extensive range of options and I found the service was attentive and helpful. View over the marina and water are pretty and the tables around... More

My partner and I always come here and have always had great food for a good price, always friendly and great atmosphere. Child friendly, my little one is always treated with colouring in and the meals for children are generous followed by a ice cream sundae. Be sure to stop by and also try the Belgium waffles too :)
