Midweek lunch at a place with wonderful view. Good service, Asian flavoured menu. I had calamari which I found chewy, others found their meals very good. Reasonable prices.

Billion dollar location with great day time views but... The menu is a confused jumble of Asian cuisines. We simply tried the 'home made' dim sims, followed by some duck & fried rice. All were acceptable but in particular the duck was dry. Wheelchair access was OK & I failed to check if they have an accessible toilet.

have eaten here on many occasions and the thing is you don't need to read the menu. It has never changed since it opened.Option to eat inside or outside. Table service, Food is of quite a good standard but by no means different, Service level is very indifferent

Went here for lunch midweek , we were stunned by the beautiful view but sadly very disappointed with the food. I had salt and pepper calamari very chewy and very small serve. Husband had fish and salad ., just average. I asked twice for salad and no chips meal came with chips.

Situated next to the beach, this restaurant has beautiful scenery. The food was fantastic, as was the range & friendliness of the staff. The downside was the entree took half an hour to arrive, when the restaurant was not very busy & the food was rather expensive.

Our table ordered the roasted duck in plum sauce, Thai green curry and coconut rice. All three dishes were delicious. Could not fault anything about our meals. Prices were reasonable as well for the quality we relieved. Friendly service. Relaxed atmosphere. We went at night but during the day the ocean view is also quite a nice bonus. Highly recommend...

THE DUCK!! Can't fault the duck, it was just sensational with the plum sauce and coconut rice. The view was incredible when the sun was going down and the service was friendly. But the duck... Might be the only reason I ever go back to Bowen in the future. Not afraid to admit that haha.
