“Discovered”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014

Eighth year in a row visiting PD and only discovered this place after a reference from a friend who holidays there every year and only tried himself for the first time!

Food is excellent, good value and a variety of dishes to choose from. The Coral Trout Tacos as an entrée were magnificent as were the parmas, steak and pasta mains.
My wife and I dined there twice in the 14 days but will fit more visits to this venue next year!

“Surf Club a hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014

The surf club is located near 4 mile beach and is thus off the beaten track but wow is it ever worth finding! We had already dined at Salsa, Two Fish and other top rated restaurants in PD, none of which really shone, when we heard that the chef from Nautilus had taken up a lease on the Surf Club kitchen. We thought we had better give it a try..... the food is first class and very reasonably priced. The crispy skinned pork belly is succulent but with the crispest crackling and served with green pawpaw salad. All the meals we saw coming out looked equally as good. So good in fact that we were back there the next day for lunch! Dave's Caesar salad is faultless with all the traditional ingredients perfectly balanced. Orders must be placed at the counter and drinks are from a separate bar but cheap and high quality. Best in town.....Just Do It!

“Excellent lunch venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2014

We lunched here twice. From the fish to the dumplings, it was all delicious. Add a stunning location and right on the beach and you have the perfect lunch. Thank you we'll be back.
