“Pretentious and very expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Don't get me wrong. The food is very good but I thought it was very expensive and pretentious. I was told no shorts and to wear a shirt. We were seated next to a large group who were mostly wearing shorts and trainers and were loud. Think they should not have placed a couple next to a group.

“Fantastic food, fabulous venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

We dined at Bommie as part of our anniversary long weekend at Hamilton island. we had booked this back in January to ensure we could get in with it being race week. The day before we dined we read some pretty awful reviews and were concerned at spending quite a lot of money on something which might not be worth it. I am glad to say we still went and found the venue to be fantastic- really nicely appointed, the staff and service were brilliant and the food was outstanding. We really couldnt fault anything we had a great time. the staff even gave us a lovely decorated plate with little chocolates to celebrate our anniversary. I would certainly recommend going to dine here even though a liitle pricey.....

“Nice view, food and price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

The food here was not cheap but worth the amazing view and taste. Its right above the yacht club so you are surrounded by incredible waters and mountains. The prices were good given the taste of the tapas we ordered and the size while small, was acceptable.

“Great ocean views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

We ate several times here during a conference. The food was acceptable and the views from inside the restaurant were magnificent. The outside bar areas are an excellent way to enjoy the sun and ambience offered by the yacht club, overlooking some serious aquatic craft. Most relaxing.

“Should be better !”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

Given its location this Restaurant should shine, however our experience was quite disappointing.

Service was average and the meals took far to long to appear. Value for money is also quite poor.

Luckily we had a table with a nice view, but that wasn't enough to make up for the poor service, overpriced menu and unacceptable waiting times.
