One of the best in Newcastle, meal was great, staff very attentive, the view over the ocean was absolutely beautiful , especially on a sunny day. Would eat there again and recommend to my friends and family.

Overpriced. $15 for 5 over cooked calamari rings that come out of a packet and some soggy chips. Asked the girl at the counter what was up and she told us that it's not her problem. 😒😑

This restaurant is one of the best in Newcastle. A bit pricey but worthed. Gorgeous food, friendly staff, beautiful location. Overlooking the ocean the all experience is even more enjoyable. Reservation recommended. AAA+

Came for early dinner at 6pm. It wasn't at all busy, but we didn't feel the servers were interested. Food was ok.

Went here for a beer and taco or 3 on a Friday afternoon. The beers were cold (although not cheap) and the tacos where tasty. All in all a nice afternoon. The prices paid represent the real estate this place is on. Good atmosphere.

We attended on a Friday afternoon for a friends catch up. Which started with drinks in the bar area prior to dinner. Drinks are expensive in the whole venue. The dinner menu was great and I really enjoyed the food. Service was okay but by no means outstanding. It's something that the restaurant should work on.
