Lovely staff, lovely food, lovely location we took our 8 year old son and he loved it.also on our last night we went with friends who lived not far away, they hadn't been for years and loved their meals, said they would definitely be back.

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.

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...
