We understand that some country places need to keep their prices up to cover costs during the quiet times, however we thought the meals were highly priced for what we got. I had a chicken salad & he had chickpea and carrot balls with salad. Both were nice but were lacking in flavour. They needed a bit of ''zing'. It... More

Great view and location.We enjoyed dinner here over a beautiful sunset. I would recommend the grilled salmon as it melted in your mouth. The staff were found to be friendly and very efficient. Reasonably priced.

Ma, Pa and 18-year old went for dinner on a warm February evening. Just down the road from our temporary haven - excellent accommodation and spectacular views at No. 4, The Palms. Entrees were scallops and chicken wings - a completely new combination to me, but a really tasty one. And, tempura prawns - a winner. Mains were the flathead... More

Very friendly staff, we ate in a little alcove off the main dining area and it was hot and humid despite a a/c on the wall which I doubt was working. Had oysters (very small) and a chicken dish which had beautiful flavours but unfortunately no where near enough of it! By that stage the table was too hot and... More

Had dinner here and enjoyed it very much. The food was good, the view was amazing, and service very good. Price was reasonable. Don't bother with the aquarium unless you are willing to pay a high price to entertain the kids, not very good.

We had lunch at the Wharf. The fish dishes we had were nice, the service was fine and the view was good. But....when the bill came, the charges for not one but two of the items (one food dish, one drink) were greater than indicated in the menu. Just carelessness in entering prices into the computer? I don't know. Appropriate... More

Anthony and the crew at the warf are super friendly. The view at sunset is the best in merimbula. Food is pretty solid, seafood maranara was A1. Kids get to hang out in the aquarium while parents have a glass of wine and watch the fisherman. Highly recommend

Thank Peppe01
