The cold seafood platter is to die for. All our meals were delicious. The service was really good too. After a bit of banter with the table beside us, they shouted us one of the amazing deserts.

The food was good. Couldn't complain about the seafood, very good quality. The staff were lovely but the service was not what I was expecting according to other reviews. We often sat with dirty dishes on our table - had to ask 4 times for some more water for all 4 of us. We were drinking wine and beer too.... More

Really great for sea food. Friendly staff and the food is good. Large servings so you need to be hungry. Good choice on the menu and not too expensive. Limited choice of wine but that was okay with us and not over the top in price like most Gold Coast restaurants. Try it and you won't be disappointed.

I have eaten here about 6 times but never again. This week I visited once more and ordered the eye fillet. It was diffently not a quality cut - full of sinew and very difficult to eat. I mentioned this matter to the waitress who replied "that a shame" and just walked off. This is not the way to attract... More

Had a dinner Saturday night for 10 people - all enjoyed their mains and desert - can't speak of entrees as we skipped these - all meals were generous with appreciative noises from around the table - service was excellent even though the place was busy

Booked a table for dinner to celebrate running in the Gold Coast marathon. On the whole the food was good and the seafood chowder was a 'stand out'. However my wife's entree and main meal was quite disappointing and not very enjoyable. This was relayed to the waitress, who listened to our complaints and did endeavour to resolve the situation...

Great seafood, but so much more. You can get pasta steak and of course great seafood. Staff are friendly. Great place for a date night but still great for a night out with friends. Probably not the best place for young children.

I dropped in to make enquires in regards to booking a table. As I had not been to this restaurant in the complex though had been to another so I wanted some information about their restaurant which was given. I also enquired about another restaurant there to which they did not have good things to say and stated they prepare... More
