Reviewed January 22, 2013

Great service. Fantastic oysters and steak. Wonderful lobster gazpacho. Chips not a strength. Nice setting. At this price point qualia better in simplicity and food quality.

“Simply atrocious”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

We are in ouble if this is number 2 on this small Island. Where will we eat the next 7 nights. The restaurant at night when dark outside is soulless and feels like a cheap hotel bistro. Kept waiting as no one at reception. Chairs were ridiculously uncomfortable. But worst was the food. Almost inedible. And all for the knock down price pf £156. Truly shocking.

“Best restaurant on Hamilton island”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

We had been told that Bommie was the best restaurant on the island so had high expectations, which in all fairness were well met. The food was delicious and the service first class. Slightly better than the long pavillion at Qualia (just).

“Great location but disappointing food”
Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I spent New Year's Eve in the Yacht Club and were most impressed by the architecture and building finishes. We paid $185 each, excluding drinks, for a seven-course degustation menu, the quality of which did not meet our expectations and failed to provide good value for money. The food was uninspired and did not display any flair or imagination. Service was painfully slow, no doubt intended to stretch the occasion from its 6.30 start until midnight. Of the 7 nights we spent on Hamilton Island, this was our most disappointing culinary experience, considering the high price we paid.
