This is the third year in a row our group of friends have visited this unassuming eatery. The seafood cippinio (something like this) was as delicious as previous years. Don't expect fine dining however, expect honest nicely presented delicious food with OK wines.

Hard to choose what to eat here, menu was not what we expected to be honest...but Fantastic Fresh Food with a slight Mexican influence, wanted to eat one of everything on the menu! Definitely try this place out.

Casual outdoor dining 5.30 to 7.30pm Thursday. Beautiful wagyu rump steak with peppercorn sauce was a delight. Huge cheese burger, fries and salad was really tasty. Great to support the locals

Fussy kids demolished their fish & chips which were yum, they got dessert with meal for $9 which was either jelly or cute homemade chocolate biscuit icecream sandwich which ours chose. I had fish tacos which were great and the homemade guacamole and salsa were so fresh and tasty. The winner was clearly what husband ordered, tomato based Sth American... More

We ate here three times. Two dinners and one lunch. It is a typical club, order food at the counter, drinks at the bar. No problems. Drinks are really good value, as is the food. We ate fish and chips, a burger, squid (very disappointing) but the outstanding dishes are the sushi roll - beautiful presentation - great taste. For... More

Went for lunch looking for a simple meal. Found that they had some interesting options on the menu that all looked great. Went with the rare tuna burger on the squid ink bun. Looked funny but was delicious. Staff were friendly and the location by the beach great.

There is a good menu, but the dishes we have tried on two visits have really lacked flavor. Presentation is excellent but I really want flavor. Buy a few spices and it will be good.

We visited upon a recommendation as a kids friendly place for dinner - the place is tucked away from the main centre of activities in PD so you would likely not end up there randomly in the evening. The main deck was full so we were offered a wooden table by the kitchen or by the playground as a better... More

We went for lunch and had glimpses of water views. The menu was not your ordinary 'club' style menu. There was a genuine originality and variety to the menu. We both ordered rare tuna burger on a squid ink bun. The food was served beautifully and really was a class much much higher than a pub or club at pub... More
