After hearing other people recommend the Beachcomber Inn for their quality of dining, we decided to go there for dinner with another couple. We were welcomed and shown to our table. The menu was extensive and very reasonably priced. We all had something different and the meals were all we had been led to believe. Just beautiful. Well presented, the... More

After having a superb experience here a few months ago, we decided to return for a "treat". The staff were attentive, bur kept inquiring whether we had made a reservation. This seemed odd as we were virtually the only customers. Perhaps they just wanted to go home? We ordered the tempura prawns as an entree, which we planned to share.... More

The food was amazing using local fare and the wine list was extensive reflecting wineries in the region. Gorgeous views to the marina. Lovely atmosphere too. Service was great.

Four of us had dinner at Beachcomber Inn on Saturday night and everyone enjoyed their meal. Portions were big (which suited the men) and the meals were all delicious. The staff were very pleasant and the view from the dining room over Picton harbour is fabulous.

Make sure that if you stay here you request a room on the third floor with a balcony overlooking the port. The view is spectacular. You can sit for hours just watching the boats coming and going. Good clothes washing facilities.

We quite often go here on special occasions and really enjoy the restaurant, food and the view. However we visited over the Christmas period and were keen on a meal, We knew it was getting on in the evening so called in and asked if it was too late for a meal at about 8, To which the waiter checked...

Visited as part of a group of nine. Staff were friendly and efficient and as my wife and I were the first to arrive, we were seated in the bar area and offered a drink. The meals were generous, well presented and delicious. The restaurant has great views of the Picton Harbour. I recommend giving this establishment a visit.

Dined at this Restaurant with family members to celebrate a Birthday. Meals were enjoyed by all and the service was friendly and attentive. Only negative was the oversized portions, such a waste of good food.
