We have been going to this restaurant for 13 years (even when it was Lord Jim's). Management has changed many times. We took friends for an anniversary dinner and while the location is seductive the food was average and menu selection very limited and not that inventive. But the big disappointment was that there were simply not enough people to... More

We came here on a saturday night, for 2 people. I initially hesitated, as the reviews were mixed (either great or poor). My goal was to have a romantic dinner for two and I was ok splurging a bit more for a pleasant evening. In the end, themajority of good reviews with the great view finally convinced me to give...

We had lunch at the resort and it was adequate. I ordered salmon cakes and they were more breading than salmon. My husband's salad looked and was good; he was pleased. Again a beautiful setting; it's hard to find a restaurant in the area that isn't on water.

We stayed at the resort for four days and only ate at the restaurant once, for breakfast. The menu is pricey. I ordered the eggs benedict. The english muffin was toasted and quite difficult to cut through. There was barely any hollandaise sauce and a very small piece of ham. The hash brown potatoes were barely warm. For the price...

We had lunch and dinner at this restaurant. Food and service is great ! I really enjoy the seafood chowder and the salmon, just cooked to perfection. Price is quite reasonable. We are amazed that there is such a good place to go in quiet Halfmoon Bay!

We enjoyed our stay at Rockwater in the tents. The staff was polite and accommodating. I would have liked to see a couple more non seafood menu items mainly because I am allergic to seafood. However I do understand they are catering to people who want to eat local seafood cuisine.

Nine of us enjoyed a delectable dining experience at Rockwater. Our server, Levi was busy, but didn't leave us out for a moment. The menu is quite diverse - we had a vegetarian and another person who required gluten-free and they were able to accommodate both - without sacrificing flavor. Excellent experience!

If you are looking for an upscale dining experience with a picture window view at a reasonable price on the Sunshine Coast, Secret Cove is worth the drive. We had a special birthday dinner at the Rockwater Secret Cove Resort. There was a wedding reception on the same evening and the property was busy. Our server, along with the entire... More

This review is a long time coming as we got married here 5 years ago and have since been back for my husbands 40th birthday and are booked for NYE this year. When we go to the Rockwater, we stay in the tenthouse suites that are located right on the cliffs above the ocean. The suite has a king size... More
