“Lovely fresh seafood”
Reviewed June 18, 2012 via mobile

We had a great meal at Mariners. Sure the food is slightly overpriced but so is everything else on Hamilton Island - once you get past that you'll enjoy your meals much more. Our table of four had 2 of the daily specials and 2 items off the regular menu. Everyone really enjoyed their meals and all plates were clean when they headed back to the kitchen. The wine list is fairly thorough and has everything from $25 bottles to some pretty exclusive drops.

Service was also great - so good we figured our waitress must have been North American ;)

“Very Good Seafood Restaurant”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

Our restaurant at the Beach Club actually served the best seafood dish that we had on the Island, but we enjoyed our meal here. We shared the Seafood Platter (?). There was a fine variety of seafood, but it was served with those skinny fries! Why would you do that when Australia makes the best chips in the civilised world? And why would you serve them at all given the size of the platter? And why is the alternative to delicately prepared seafood of stunning variety and quality to douse the poor thing in batter and fry them?! Apart from that the fish was lovely, the portions too large and the service friendly and efficient.

“Very good meal”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

We had a very good meal at Mariners. The restaurant was not busy (off season). We were seated right away and the service was very good. The seafood was very fresh and prepared nicely. Unfortunately it was raining so we could not sit outside, but it looked like they had a great deck. Overall good experience.

“Amazing food, amazing service!”
Reviewed May 20, 2012

An amazing dining experience! The food was incredible with the service to match. Courtenay (?) was our waitress and was wonderful. Being pregnant, I was very particular with the freshness of the seafood and was not dissapointed. The tempura prawns for entree followed by the prawn curry was a perfect choice (complemented with a mocktail), DH said his salmon was the best he has had! What made the night was all the wait staff delivering an amazing desert platter prepared by the Chef (Jack) and all singing Happy Birthday. Will definitely be returning!!

Service was good and so was the food. Menu could have provided a wider selection of seafood
