Had breakfast here. I had eggs benedict which I thought was pretty average. Nothing special about it. Other person had pancakes, they tasted nice but had to ask for extra syrup. Waitress was nice enough but not very friendly. With such a stunning view I think they need to up their service and... read more

For a group of 50 people, we were treated like we were interrupting staff every time we went for a drink at the bar. The staff were more interested in talking to themselves and drinking themselves than serving us - Terrible hospitality and for the prices they charge I was surprised. I'm sure theres a law against licencee's drinking on... More

Our last experience with breakfast there was not that great. The livers all came out cold and the toast with the Eggs Benedict was burned. The coffees were very mediocre considering they charge $4.50 for one and the waitresses weren't very switched on at all. Almost a bit unfriendly. Just as well we had Grab One vouchers. Certainly wouldn't have... More

Food was yummy, nice views and atmosphere. They were happy to accommodate a vegetarian main meal even though there wasn't one one on the menu.

We were a party of five for dinner, entree's mains and deserts were all really nice, professionally prepared and presented, our waitress was friendly and efficient. a well stocked bar catered to all our needs and the icing on the cake was being able to watch a beautiful cruise ship disembarking the port while we had our meal.

I also ordered the Caramel Parfait which was outstanding, beautiful... More

Had dinner here on Sunday night with 6 adults. Great view to the ocean. There was not a lot of atmosphere in the restaurant. Ordered drinks and meals without a problem. Did have to ask what the fish was in the fish of the day choice. Meals took a long time to arrive considering there was one other table there.... More

Went to attend a post wedding morning brunch which was pre booked for around 60 people. Arrived just prior to 11am to be told that they were not taking any more orders as they had another party coming in that was booked earlier than this booking. We ended up having to go and get food from Solo Cafe across the... More
