Great location that overlooks marina. Come early if you want a table near the window or book your table. Food is plentiful and great on the pallet. Fresh and varied menu. Price is good and staff are delightful. If you like a coffee after your meal and want it hot, remember to ask.

Not sure what planet the restaurant / kitchen is on. I order a chicken schnitzel with pepper sauce ( $21.90 ) Saturday night 18/02/2017. It took almost an hour to arrive to the table. The schnitzel looked dried up and the chips were all fused together on the plate. Looked like a birds nest of chips. the plate had a... More

As a family it's always the first place we go to for a meal. Not once have we been disappointed, family friendly area with a wide variety menu.

Well after many years of dining at this previously great venue, the newer style has not gone down too well in our group. I phoned to enquire as to whether the soup and salad bar will ever return but the lady was not too encouraging with her response. It would seem they don't really need or want customers at the...

We had been visiting for a number of years, had always been a good meal. This time the salad bar had gone, prices had gone up (quite a bit) and the selection was tiny (my sister had a desert for a main instead). I had the salt and pepper squid tentacles which was nice, but did not feel like a... More

This hotel/restaurant fell well short of expectation. Appalling table service with tables not cleared between customers and then only partially cleared. No cleaning of the table between customers. Food just pub standard and not great pub food at that. Lengthy wait for ordering while staff took and filled food and drink orders at the food order counter. Drink ordering immediately... More

My family and I had lunch here for something different by the sea. Firstly the service was slow. We arrived at a sign that said "wait here to be seated". We waited 10 mins and still no greeting so we just went ahead and found a table like another couple. There were tables that had not been cleared and were... More
