excellent food, service and atmosphere!!! Perfect sized portions for a degustation menu, beautifully presented food and eve dish was delicious. The service was attentive but not in your face at all. We have been to quay restaurant in circular quay a few months earlier, and we were much happier with the over all visit to cottage point inn than quay.... More

It was a year or so since we had been to Cottage Point Inn. We had friends stating with us from Canada and thought lunch there would finish off our time together nicely. We booked, and then we saw some nasty reviews on TripAdvisor. The reviews were WRONG! We took the ferry from Palm Beach, which is a very pleasant... More

Where to start...this place used to be good but I know several people who have now decided not to go back. The portions have gotten really small. The fish doesn't appear to be fresh, the deserts are basic and the service is truly hopeless. It's a small restaurant so it shouldn't be like this but seems not enough staff and... More

When I reviewed this restaurant last July, I could only rave about the fabulous coming together of a beautiful place and wonderful food and wine. Alas, no more. Rating it this time as "Average" might be a little harsh, but the overall experience is nothing like what it has been on my previous two visits. For those that have not... More

Valentines Day 2014 - $140 a head for a largely pathetic degustation menu of six tiny courses. First bit - 3 small tomato halves with a little bit of oil drizzled over the top. They were just average tomatoes. There was a nice small cube of beef but the rest was something most people could cook at home. The desert... More

What a huge disappointment. I have been before (4-5 years ago) and loved it. No longer and will not be recommending or re-visiting. Understand there has been a change in owner, but that the operations are run by the same team – neither is working…. This visit left me feeling it has so gone downhill and is not worth the... More

An overall lovely experience. Only a short drive for us, longer for others possibly; but that's part of the experience overall. The view is amazing, there is no doubt about that, no matter what the weather. We watched the sun go down over the mountainous ridges. Service was very astute and informative; staff were on standby at all times to... More

We were dreamily nestled within this open air platform above the shimmering waters of Cowan Bay. In quick time we relished and gently devoured the pan seared scallops and the cured salmon tartare. Our taste buds were warming rapidly. Lots of mesmerised focus on the shiny tableau of glistening waters and adjacent greenery,were dreamily interrupted with our mains. Seafood is... More

Arrived by seaplane ( run by Steve and Jenny ) from Rose Bay where Pier restaurant used to be, NOT the marina one... To arrive by seaplane makes the experience enhanced. The restaurant is set in an incredible location. The staff deliver the service in a very relaxed yet professional manner. The food was very good.. Will definitely return here.
