“Degustation heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

The meal I received on was nothing short of world class. Each course uniquely presented and constructed.

Service, including a visit from one of the chefs (nice touch) was lovely with attentiveness and interest. It was obvious that there is a sucessful team here that shows their passion for the food.
Please find the time to try the Degustation menu. Really covers everything and is just enough.

“Nice food terrible service ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

Beautiful location & great food however service for this kind of dining needs to step it up a level. Wasn't that busy however 3 girls waitressing so plenty of staff for tables however due to the 3 girls all serving us different one taking orders to one serving food and drinks so each time orders were given to wrong person. It's not hard to remember who ordered what if you take order and serve. My friend and I sat there for 20 minutes before we was even asked if we wanted to order a drink. Customer service was terrible only deserves a one star for service. Some of the staff need to learn to have a conversation with the customers and not display there cranky mood and annoyance with having to serve a table. Considering the prices on the menu here the staff need some serious training. Mind you seems your typical Airlie Beach service.

“The best meal so far”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

We were a party of six. On our last evening at Arlie Beach we wanted a special dinner, and so it was! We had a six course dinner with wine pack. Every dish was like an art, and the taste! Topper by the best dessert ever, the Sticky date cake! We'll worth every dollar spent!
