Description: Situated in the Hamilton Island Yacht Club, the award-winning Bommie is one of the most superb places to eat on the island. Bommie takes its name from the Aboriginal word 'bombora' - which refers to the shallow, isolated and colourful reef patches found in the waters surrounding Hamilton Island.

Truly stunning. The yacht Club itself is an amazing building in an incredible location. Bommie restaurant occupies the perfect spot within the club, overlooking the marina and the passage between Dent Island and Hamilton Island. It is one of those locations you have to see to appreciate.

The food presentation was outstanding, as were the tastes in every dish. For entree we had the Ravioli of smoked quail with swiss brown mushrooms and jerusalem artichoke veloute, as well as the crumbed pork hock with jamon and beetroot relish - both excellent.

For mains we enjoyed the duck breast with sauted brussel sprouts (never thought I would like brussel sprouts in any meal!) celeriac and apple puree, with warm duck leg terrine, as well as the ccoral trout with sago-aloo potato and spinach & green tomato salsa.

The prices may seem steep, but when you consider that the amuse bouche, breads, sorbet palatte cleanser all come complementary, you actually get a full meal for the price of 2 (or three) courses - and it is 5 star quality. You do not get five star food, service and location for two star prices so I think we were content that we got value for money.

One of memorable dinners. The Cape Grim fillet steak we agreed was as good as we have ever had. Service by Kiwi waiter first class - xlnt knowledge of a quirky but fine winelist.

The view is spectaular, wine & food a little pricey for what you receive (very small portion size) ie: tapas. A must do if not once.

Really nice setting, more private and less noise than other restaurants in Hamilton island
We could not fault service and the little extras that come along with the food such as palate cleansers
Food price is on the higher end though

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.
