This restaurant offers much more than a view over the wharf and water to the sun setting behind the hills. The tempura prawns were served with a dipping sauce and sesame seeds and a small salad with slices of ginger. Delicious taste sensation. The sardines were also tasty served with a small salad. As both of these meals were entrees... More

We had a leisurely, celebratory lunch for 6 people and were delighted with the view and the food. The seafood was plentiful and delicious, and menu items were reasonably priced. It was wheelchair accessible too. There is a narrow outside balcony with tables for 2, but our table was inside the glassed-in area and we were able to enjoy the... More

On our arrival we have to stop a waiter to let them know of our booking after a 10 minute wait. The waiter pointed the table to us instead of showing/guiding us to our table. When we are seated we waited for 15 minutes before we decided to ask a waiter for a menu. When the menu was provided 30... More

had a birthday celebration here and it was superb. The service was good and the view awesome. The food matched the rest of it. We had seafood (as you do) cooked beautifully and the price matched the ambience of the place. We enjoyed it and would go again.

Lovely setting looking over bay. Service was fantastic and food great - especially the dessert. Only suggestion is that they tone down their use of rocket on their salads - overpowered the flavour of an otherwise beautiful prawn salad.

We stopped at this restaurant by chance in a brief stopover in Merimbula, you could not ask for a better view, it was gorgeous. The service was good and the meals reasonably priced and quite nice. My only complaint was that my particular meal was quite small. After our meal my husband decided to take a leap off the jetty... More

Scruffy old couches as you walk in...stuffed toys and weird lay out, kinda tacky...could be so much nicer...needs a clean up to respect the location and view. Ordered fish and chips...sad to say but the fish wasn't that nice either..we didn't finish it. Won't be going back.

Spend an hour. Not big or expensive but combined with the restaurant worth a trip there. High jetty with good views across bay
