We were given a seat outside on the decking immediately for lunch, no waiting for drinks orders either. Our friendly waitress brought our food quickly and checked everything was to our satisfaction. The prawn cocktail special was delicious, as were my guests meals of fish and chips and pasta. Would eat there again when in Mission Beach.

My wife forgot her reading glasses and we were sharing mine, when David came out and offered his reading glasses to help. Great communications between all those staff concerned. We had a few wines,... More

Although we enjoyed our pizza on the night and service was good I was shocked with the attitude of the Manager who confronted two potential Asian customers and their children who asked if they could dine in the restaurant and were rudely informed that the restaurant was booked out notwithstanding that there were many empty tables and it was only...
