A fabulous location. Overlooking the water at Sanctuary Cove, plenty of big boats, large picture windows. And service staff were excellent. We arrived early & got a great table by the window. Just don't go to enjoy a good meal. Garlic bread was good to start. Then went downhill. Mussels covered in a thick paste of terrible tomato sauce. Yuck!... More

Great location, service good but food not. 2 steaks were not cooked to request, vegetable side was limp greens, undercooked carrots and rocket garnish was old and yellow. Seafood crepe was a fish pie. If this restaurant is ranked 3 in sanctuary cove would prefer to eat at home.

The secret with Georges is to eat early later in the afternoon the staff change and the service and food standard slip. The lunches we had on three occasions were excellent unlike the meal at Mount Tamborine. The décor and location are perfect and if you don't enjoy the food you should enjoy the view and atmosphere. The half price... More

We went as a family for a night out. We have been a few times before and it was still as good. Lovely setting and a very good menu selection. The service was a bit hit and miss this time but it was very busy. The seafood is very good. Very enjoyable overall. It is well worth a visit.
