Family friendly, customer focused, tasty food.

Had a lovely breakfast here, after a rather poor dinner elsewhere the night before, this was a welcome surprise. Great service too.

We wondered down to Dromana and checked some of the eateries along the main beach on Trip advisor first of course. We went into each deciding what we felt like. The staff at l'Aqua were efficient and after we moved seats a couple of times, just to have quiet and not too close to road, they took our order of... More

Last minute decision and the right one made. Food and service were great. First time trying the "Stonegrill" and have no regrets. Steak was tender, salmon was very tasty and spaghetti marinara was one of the best.

We ate here on our last night of our holidays at nearby Safety Beach. The menu is not extensive, but has enough options to satisfy most diners. The pastas are huge servings, my lamb salad entree was generous and the fish was a good size as well. All meals were thoroughly enjoyed. Staff are excellent and attentive to your needs.... More

Eggs Benedict to die for!! The best I've ever eaten (better than LA) large lunch and dinner menu with an amazing range of cakes for dessert. Playground in the back is a bit worse for wear and could do with a facelift but does the job if you want a quick meal in peace. Ok coffee good friendly service

I have eaten here twice, both times i was not overly impressed, service was so so, the meals feel very mass-produced, they lack the care and attention in both plating and quality. First time was for breakfast, i had the eggs Benedict with spinach, the Hollandaise Sauce was lacking in any flavour and the spinach unseasoned. the toast was watery... More

The service was okay and the coffee was good but the food was pretty average. There are too many good places to choose from on The Peninsula - I won't be going back.

Terrible service. Came in at 1715 and told that we have to fit 6 people on one small table because it is booked out. The restaurant was empty. After much hassling, they got us a table that fits 6. Veal scallopine was bad. Waiter was also so sarcastic
