“Gorgeous feast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

The Lamb shanks were fantastically cooked but slightly over powering in flavor and had slightly too much sauce on them but other than that the drinks were beyond amazing with beautiful presentation and an amazing array of colors.
Also we met a waitress named Fox whilst eating dinner, She was by far one of the greatest waitresses I have met. She served us well and on time with such a great attitude, great thanks to her and the chef for an amazing meal.

The location was great with view over the park to the ocean. Food was very good and the staff were friendly. Would definitely recommend it.

“The Perfect Laksa”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Dropped by the Shipwrecked on a rainy Sunday lunchtime after seeing the Seafood Laksa advertised on menu. The Laksa is normally only available on Dinner menu but the chef made an exception for us, so thanks chef. The Laksa was perfect with abundant pieces of seafood all cooked just right and the soup itself was really tasty. Was a lovely way to spend lunch on a cold and rainy day. Wait staff were wonderful. Will be back to the Shipwrecked again next time in Airlie.

“Great food & service by one!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I dined at shipwrecked a few nights back (friday) for a special occasion. We were seated promptly on the balcony with a stunning view.
We were served by an English waitress. She was fantastic and very entertaining, making us and other tables chuckle, adding to the atmosphere of the place. Our drinks and meals came quickly, tasted fantastic and were cleared away promptly too.
Our only complaint is that this was all done by our English waitress who was also busy clearing plates and helping other customers in the process, this didn't bother anyone as she was very officiant. However we can't understand why any business would have 4 waitresses working if only one is doing the bulk of the work. We wanted to tip but when we asked her if the tips were shared she said they were so we apologised to her but the others just didn't deserve a cut. Other than this everything was delightful.
