We had a lovely evening here and enjoyed the view, service and food. However we only had one course and 1 bottle of wine and we thought the bill was extortionate. We have had just as good a meal, in equally nice surroundings for half the price. If we return it will be to the cafe not the restaurant!

But the weather certainly didn't dampen our enjoyment of this fabulous restaurant. After reading some mixed reviews I must say we were a tad apprehensive. However, our Australia Day lunch couldn't have been more perfect! From the moment we walked in the door the service was impeccable - a fine example of well trained staff who not only know their...

The cafe section is fine. But whatever you do stay away from the fine dining section. The good? The oysters (pacific) were lovely and fresh, the sweet corn soup was imaginative and delicate. The bad? The duck magrete was I'll conceived and served with what looked like deep fried comfit. $55 for 7 potato dumplings in a garlic Jus -... More

Can't fault the vista from the Restaurant, parking is a problem, meals a little too petite for the price they charge.

The perfect weather and amazing location was fantastic for my special birthday. The service too was excellent but the food was not. Not one of us had anything good to say about the entrees - the tuna sashimi was totally overpowered by the beetroot, the corn soup had too many unimpressive additives and the overcooked swordfish - what was that...

Returned here for a family birthday and were not disappointed. We were seated by the window and enjoyed the point blank beach views, although there are probably no 'bad' tables. The service was impeccable and food fantastic as always. The prices make it a place for special occasions but each time it's been worth it.

Visited the Hunter Valley Uncorked event a few weeks ago and discovered this place. A few weeks later we returned with some family who were visiting from Melbourne. It was a beautiful Sunday lunchtime and we were told that we would have to wait 40 minutes for a table. No worries with a fantastic beach at hand. We returned 40... More

We enjoyed our evening meal in the restaurant (not the cafe) as the sea mist descended, listening to the waves lapping. The wine list is long and we did not see a sommelier and were not offered any assistance with appropriate choice from the list. Our mains and desserts were made from so many ingredients it was difficult to appreciate... More

Classy sums this place up. I love just sitting, chatting and enjoying choosing from their selected menu. Good value. A little expensive but worth the cost. Do not miss this opportunity to spoil yourself.

Beautiful experience! To begin with we had scallops which were very flavourful. Next, for main we had barramundi and the veal. The barramundi was cooked well but dissapointingly, there was a hair. The veal was delicious and cooked to perfection. Finally, for dessert we had the amazing Meringue Mouse. Overall, it was a great memorable experience. Would love to go... More
