I had organised a weekend away at Cottage Point Inn to propose to my girlfriend. We flew up with Sydney Seaplanes and spent the night in the apartment above the restaurant. The week before we were due to go, Ally one of the owners called to touch base. When I told her my plans, she could not have been more... More

Beautiful spot, amazing food and very interesting, service was perfect. We drove to Cottage Point and found it easy to park (mid week) and only a short walk down to the water's edge.

Having been to this restaurant many times over the past 20 years I have to admit the last visit was disappointing. We received a promotional offer with the new chef arriving recently so thought we'd give it another go. We arrived at 1.04pm and still had not eaten anything (not even a bread roll) by 1.55pm. If there is one... More

Location amazing, food really really good. Service was just average when we went. Slow, not really paying attention to us. Courteous but a bit indifferent. Wine matching splendid.

We visited for my daughters 21st as a party of 7 and enjoyed the most amazing lunch, brought to us by friendly knowledgeable staff. The 7 course degustation menu was fairly seafood orientated but in this setting why wouldn't you when your sitting right next to one of Sydneys jewel waterways in a National Park with yachts cruising right by...

What a total disappointment - went here with another couple to celebrate my friend's wife's birthday. We were shown to our table and left alone for around 45 minutes - no menus, no water, nothing even though we stopped 2 waiters while they were serving other tables and asked for menus and water. When someone finally decided to talk to... More

Everything from the food, wine, service and location is first class. We chose to order off the menu rather than do the degustation as we weren't that hungry and our meals were beautifully presented and tasted delicious. Good size serves and a good variety of choices on the menu. As the food was so good we also indulged ourselves with... More

We returned to our favourite, been dining there for 30yrs. A dinner and accomodation voucher was an ideal way to check in with new owners Ally and Shane. Their new Chef couldn't have wowed us any better. We described the service, as beyond great, the food even better than the service, that killer wine list and yes the setting. Finally... More

We said that we would not return for quite a while after our last visit, as it was not pleasant, food wise. The new chef is a breath of fresh air, his menu is inspiring. It is light but so flavorful, an absolute pleasure. We will be back sooner rather than later.

You can arrive by plane, boat or car however arriving by seaplane or boat adds a another dimension to your dining experience. A special location ideal for special occasions. Our third visit at this time for a wedding anniversary and the cottage doesn't disappoint. The food is beautifully prepared, the environment is unique and the service is top quality. Fabulous...
