Views overlooking the bay towards Fraser Is were pristine and superb. The meal deal with neighbouring Reef World made this venue very economical for a first class dining experience. The Seafood Plate was to die for and the coconut battered prawns were delicious. It was a struggle to get through all the meal but we made it.

Such a relaxed atmosphere and perfect for the many wedding receptions held here. The food is excellent especially the seafood that Hervey Bay is renowned for. Nearby park and playground for the children to play. Highly recommended.

Great view and the staff were friendly. The breakfast was delicious and good portions. Couldn't eat it all. They are also open for lunch. Next time we will definitely be going back.

The Chilli Mango Calamari was a really tasty dish. The calamari literally melted in your mouth and if you enjoy chilli, this dish is you for you. It came with a nice crisp salad. Excellent dish. Lovely view over the Great Sandy Straits. We even saw a pod of dolphins.

As the title says, the food was very good. Great, in fact. The size of the meal was good and it filled me. I felt like I was floating above the water. This place is really beachside at its best. The service was questionable and at times it was very hit and miss. Maybe there is no Hospitality School in... More

A great spot to have some good Hervey Bay seafood while overlooking the water. Kids are catered for with a nice little area for them to play while mum and dad relax. Service was great and friendly and the food awesome.

Went for lunch as part of the Reefworld Aquarium (next door) visit. Food was excellent, service friendly, and the views from the balcony were spectacular. Great location and atmosphere.

Dined here for lunch on the holidays over Easter. I had the Coconut Battered Hervey Bay Prawns and my husband had the Reefworld Seafood Plate. Both meals were just amazing. It was extremely busy but the wait for food wasn't long at all. The staff were very efficient and friendly. Would highly recommend this establishment. Great food and great service!
