Beautiful view however TERRIBLE food. Had salad for $22 and I'm still tasting garlic today! Beef Ribs dry dry drier and pork ribs fat fat fatty!! Poorly lit inside can see it's to accommodate a seedy night club at night. Maybe the management should stick to that and forget overpriced terrible food! Will not return. Sorry

yup the view was pretty but that's about it. Food very ordinary and over priced. Inside was dark, not much alcohol selection either. Pretty average all round wouldn't go back.

Although the location was great, I was a little put-off by the fact that we arrived to find a pub, who then charged around $30 per meal. The salmon I had was lovely but only just enough, and didn't really contain many sides (sides had to be ordered separately) but my partner's lamb was TINY! If this were a fancy... More

We made the mistake of booking a table when the wine and food festival was on but were told at the time we could shift tables it it was too hot outside because they weren't busy. WRONG! They were flat out! Meals took an hour to come out and the ribs were dry and hardly any meat. Scallops were terrible... More

We got the two different types of ribs. They were dry, the sauce was sour and horrid, was not hot food, corn was barely cooked and coleslaw was only ok. Honestly, ribs are supposed to fall off the bone, be juicy, sweet and decadent. These were horrid. First restaurant I've reviewed and been cranky about. Spending this kind of money... More

Vues looks over the Marina at Nelson Bay NSW which is a very pleasant place to be. The restaurant has the feeling of an upmarket pub. The food offering was casual and well presented. Prices were reasonable. Wine and drink prices were not too expensive considering the location. The view over the Marina is excellent ( the weather was perfect... More

My partner and I went in for dinner on a busy Saturday night, and I have to say - we were impressed! The view is amazing (even once the sun has set), the staff were kind, and the food was delicious! As a local I would just like to say the new menu is delicious. I would recommend Vues for... More

Took the family out to dinner and after perusing the abundant choice of menus around the marina we decided on Vues. We were really impressed with the service, the friendliness of the staff / manager and the great tasting quality food on offer. The crusted salmon was the best salmon dish I have had in any restaurant to date. My... More
