“Perfect, just perfect.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

We had this restaurant as our reception venue for our wedding after eating here previously and loving it.
The staff were so helpful and friendly whilst we were planning the reception and liaised directly with our suppliers which was a great help. They were accommodating and helped the whole process immensely as well as being our back up for last minute ceremony location change if it rained, thankfully it did not!
The food was exquisite, the canapés were stunning as well as delicious, the meat tender, fish soft,the flavours Devine and the wine perfect! I could not and would not have wanted to change a thing.
Now the location.... It is stunning. There is no other way to describe it, it is directly on the Maroochy river and the views on the sand bars, across the water and beyond are just lovely, it has a real outdoors indoors feel too with the huge glass windows opening out onto this view.
To add to this, even though they are not what you would classically call a child friendly restaurant (simply because the food is more adult themed) they do have some children's selections and they catered to our 10 child guests wonderfully both in food but also in transforming an area of the restaurant into a kids area with games, DVDs etc.
Overall the whole experience made our day not only perfect but also incredibly relaxed (not an easy feat with 10 children!!)
Thank you to Ebb and their staff, a truly memorable day and a business I will happily recommend to all and one which I know we will be frequenting often.

“Ok food, restaurant tired?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014 via mobile

Quite nice fairly ordinary food, if limited choice. Quite ordinary service too but what surprised me in view of the other reviews was the maintenance. The concrete floor outside was dirty, the planter boxes were dead? The pool needs more pebbles as the wires are showing through. The umbrella was broken, and the outside stools were very dirty. Same even with the front entrance door and general surrounds. Resting on its laurels a bit, given its previous good food reputation, but a restaurant is more than food, esp when weddings are your mainstay. Get out the broom guys.

“Always Lovely”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

Just had a dinner with my husband. As always beautiful refined food, excellent wine by the glass at very reasonable prices, professional service and gorgeous setting. The restaurant is looking tatty in places, Ladies toilets need a refresh, stained doors and widespread stained and damaged carpet in the dining area.

“Beautiful food in an idyllic setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

It was our first trip to Ebb, and it certainly won't be our last! Positioned right on the water, the restaurant itself is stylish, and the service is friendly and personable. We had the lunch special on a Saturday, and found it to be excellent value. Beautifully presented with balanced flavours. Another reviewer had mentioned small portions, but we thought the portions were perfect. (I can highly recommend the caramelised banana dessert, scrumptious!)

They were really accommodating with our stroller, and happily provided a highchair. Note to parents with toddlers - there is a very tempting shallow water feature right in the middle of courtyard, which I wouldn't fancy trying to keep an active small person out of!

“Very Very Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

Nine of us lunched at this delightful,airy restaurant with a great view to the river,on a beautiful ,clear Sunday....Service was good,although maybe one more wait staff would have been better (understandably in view of penalty rates on a Sunday,this would have been prohibitively expensive )
The wine list ,although not extensive was ok....we chose Shaw & Smith Chardy ($75),S & S Shiraz ($75) & S& S Sav Blanc ($50)...Not cheap,but good quality...
Entrees & Mains were very good (They have a deal if you take an entrée & main,or main & dessert) although the Gnocci,whilst delicious was very small (It reminded me of 3 very small scallops at a Sydney restaurant years ago for $35)Everyone was very happy with content & quality...I would go there again,but I'd ask about the size of the Gnocchi as it really was delicious !!
