The prices here are really good, on average around $25. The view on average worth about $1,000,000. We sat on a beautiful covered deck overlooking the water with boats bobbing up and down and views off the lush green mountains. I ordered the seafood basket which included yummy beer battered fries, a good sized piece of battered Spanish mackerel, crumbed... More

We only tried the one meal so the others may be better!. We had the battered Spanish Mackerel. The meal came to us in a matter of minutes. It wasn't fresh and didn't taste great at all. It was as if the meals were already cooked to get them out quicker. The views are nice though so worth a look... More

First time back since the renovations. I give this an average rating due to the service, staff seemed uninterested and not wanting to be there. We were directed to our table and then told "order over at the counter and drinks at the bar" then no further contact throughout the evening. I ordered a med/rare steak which was more med... More

By the name 'club'. If you look smart casual and carry ID you will be give Guest membership for the day. And it's really worth getting : the location and view from the Terrace Restaurant is the best anywhere while the food and drinks are at 'club' prices - the lowest in the area. Meanwhile the quality of service and... More

I would recommend visiting the Tin Shed for dinner. It's a very casual vibe woth nice views out to the water. They don't take bookings and you have to sign in because it's a Member's Club. You also have to go to the bar to order your drinks and have to go the food counter to order your food. But... More

Best oysters kilpatrick! Most of the staff we really friendly and nice. Spoilt by only one staff member who tried to clear half full glasses and when she took our meal order was very unhelpful and inflexible. Don't bother with the seafood basket. All of the fish was pre frozen, pre crumbed and the whole lot was deep fried. No... More

We have been coming here for years while on holiday, so it was disappointing to be disappointed. The baby Barra was the winner, the Parma not so. The steak was good, the ceviche was meh. The prawns were as reliable as ever though. Service was ok, except for the woman on the til who was pretty abrupt and grumpy. Hopefully... More

Food was Bistro/Pub food and offered reasonable value. Whilst most staff were attentive and friendly the lady on the service desk was abrupt/rude(shame to find in hospitality) So overall no frills to be found here.
