Had dinner on evening on spec. Very busy for a Monday night but they squeezed us in. The food was very well cooked and presented. It appears to be a family run business and the great service seems to reinforce that.

Visited as part of a group. From earlier reviews expectations were high. Unfortunately not met. Prices are not cheap but the quality does not match the price. The food is better than a sports club bistro. Wine list is adequate. Beer prices a little high.

We had lunch there last week. My wife ordered the crumbled squid with prawns and I had the seared tuna loin. Both dishes were delicious. And also the rose wine was very tasty.. Furthermore a very relaxed seating on the balcony and great service. We will be back when we are in Nelson Bay.

We had a great table outside under the awning and with a heater which kept us toasty. Service was prompt and friendly and we all enjoyed our meals. Even though it seemed quite busy it wasn't too noisy. Only complaint was that our pre ordered taxi got nabbed by someone else, but the staff were very accommodating and took us... More

Dined here recently for dinner with friends. Service was very good, although as seems to be the case with most places, once the initial glasses of wine were poured by staff, they didn't come back to top up the glasses. However the food was great and well timed between courses. Highly recommended, although parking can be a problem sometimes.

What a great lunch we had! The food was quality and super fresh. Oysters were a special treat - loved them! And the seafood grill was just fabulous and great value. The staff were super friendly and helpful and didn't mind that we just stayed and stayed. And why wouldn't we? The view is TDF (to die for) and the... More

Had lunch there on Monday, service was just excellent, not over the top and not under done. Personal approach, attentive and willing to help in any way - impressive balance in service that just made you feel welcome. The views are very spectacular over the marina and the food was stunning. Mixed Oysters for entree were cooked perfectly, the Kilpatrick... More

Had family meal with 2 young children. Seated on balcony providing spectacular views of sun setting. Food excellent. One point which would have made a difference was the not so friendly waitress .
