Lunch for my parents 59th wedding anniversary. Food was amazing, staff very friendly and professional. Venue spectacular. Will certainly be booking for the 60th anniversary next year! Highly recommend for a special occasion.

One of our group really enjoyed the baked fish of the day with lemon butter sauce, and the other really enjoyed the Fruits of The Sea! And sweets.... Oh yum... I had... More

Glad we made the effort to stop. Wonderful view and great coffee. Shared the scones and they were lush.Just took a little while to get the service sorted but a lot of people all turned up soon after we did so things got busy.

We visited the aquarium first, followed by lunch. Both were great experiences - the aquarium is really very good, great variety of species with a good commentary. Try to get there before 11.30 when the fish feeding takes place, its worth seeing. We then went upstairs and enjoyed a beautiful lunch - my husband had a plate of scallops which... More

Thankyou for making our 'Bonfems' birthday such a wonderful time. All the extra attention to details was so appreciated. Cake was superb. A memorable birthday for our group.

Had a beautiful meal. Great response to my e-mail asking for a booking before I left for my holiday. I enjoyed the service and the food, I went back for another lunch before I headed back to Canberra. Will definitely be coming back again on my next holiday next year. Thanks very much

We have never had better service!!! We ordered the seafood basket for 2, we could not get through the whole thing but tried our very best, very delicious! We will definitely be going back here on our next visit to Merimbula, nothing better then going out for a nice dinner with amazing views and fresh seafood.

We had a very nice lunch at this restaurant with a fabulous view. We enjoyed the view and the food but felt the kiosk style aquarium counter setup in the restaurant a bit tacky. Sitting right next to a stuffed animal stand and having families wander up & down the stairs to the aquarium detracts from the restaurant particularly when... More

The only entre's were herb or garlic bread or oysters. My self and a friend asked if we could have an entre size of... More
