“overpriced and low quality”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

we booked a table for mother's day. the price per head (which was already pricey for a buffet lunch) we were told over the phone increased by 20% on the day for no given reason. the buffet was limited in range and of poor quality. one of the few vegetarian options ran out half way through lunch and was not replaced. the restaurant is situated right at the back of the venue and has no view or any atmosphere. a very bad mother's day experience.

“Bistro with a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Overall a very pleasant meal in very nice surrounds, comfortable seating and lovely views over the Kiama Harbour. Very good service and reasonably priced food, a bit more atmospheric than dining on the main street, and you don't need a booking.

“The Diamond has lost its sparkle - just another pub, shame...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Having been a regular at Blue Diamond since it opened, I was looking forward to seeing the outcome of the refurbishments. What a disappointment! Lost -an opportunity to bring some style & trendy designs to the place. (has the owner seen any of the bars in Sydney?) I have not spoken to anyone who likes the new look! Younger people call it 'Macca's style' with its yellow and grey chairs.Done cheaply, a couple of chairs already broken, and the yellow ottomans grubby. Even red or orange would have been more modern!? Such as shame, great staff, customer service, food always good, view amazing, spoilt by someone renovating it as cheap as chips. sorry Sebel, no longer recommending the Blue Diamond.

“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

Great Bar and Brasserie in an excellent hotel. Delicious food, always changing menu. they have specials on during the weeknights that are really good value. The bar was just refurbished. Excellent Bar atmosphere on Fridays and Saturdays. Great place to have Sunday arvo drinks. Try the Kiama Courage cocktail.
