Good place for a quick lunch however nothing special. The plate servings are very small for the price they are. Staff are nice. There are better places for food.

Food was tasty! Reasonably priced too. Great view of the marina. But only go if you like your pizza :)

Great food and service. We had to wait for a bit for a table, as they don't take bookings, but it was worth the wait and food came out fast for our hungry 4yo and 2yo. Overall quite happy with everything.

We spent 8 nights on Hamilton island and ate here on 3 separate occasions. On all occasions our food was great, staff and service was brilliant they have some nice staff. Location was lovely sitting on the edge of the marina. Would definitely recommend.

Went here twice whilst staying on the Island. We hadn't booked so had to wait and have a drink until a table became available, it was outside next to seaa with good view of the harbour. We tried various dishes between us on the 2 nights, pizzas, souvlaki with chapati bread and dips, octopus and chorizo salad. All were excellent... More

Our family ate here twice on our recent visit to Hamilton Island. The pizzas are very good and the outlook over the marina is great. Will visit again on the next trip.

We really liked it here. The waiter was very friendly, the food was yum and the views were great. Definitely worth a visit. It was our last night on the island and this was a great place to sign off.

We ordered four pizzas for three families and ate on the waterfront overlooking the harbour. The pizzas were outstanding. A good mix of toppings and a nice thin crust. The adults and children loved them. We liked the food so much we're back tonight for a meal. Highly recommended- very pleasant staff and a glorious site overlooking the harbour.
