“We ate here twice. Wow the food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

The food was fantastic. We ate twice. And the King Prawns. I have never had such big ones, almost like Lobster. and cooked to perfection. And sitting on the beach with drinks what a luxury.

Would highly recommend to anyone staying in the Unwantuna area.

And Make Reservations, it gets busy

“Good quality of food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013 via mobile

I would definitely recommend you to visit this place. We tried green curry and red curry with prawns and it was perfect, also we tried curry soup and fried calamari and everything was perfect.

“Decent food in a nice spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

We enjoyed our dinner here. It was certainly busy, with many tables reserved. But we had eaten and were out before many of the parties had arrived.

Partners Roti wrap was delicious and my ginger chicken pretty good.

We had great service and it is certainly one of the better places to eat in the area!

Not sure of the need for beer in plastic cups.

“great beach side restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

food is great, try the giant prawns and avocado salad. Service is a bit slow but who cares with a Lion lager and feet in the sand!

“Beach restaurant looking for more?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013 via mobile

Pleasant location and good atmosphere. Service quick and expedient. Food quality variable, and nothing special. My tuna was ordered rare, and arrived medium. We missed the flavours and creativity of a good restaurant, and that can´t be compensated by good service alone. The bar list was extensive, but several items were not available.
