Had an amazing party at The Great Provider. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The food was great and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Highly recommended.

We went there for a party. The location is lovely, the food style of service was gorgeous (little portions of fish and chips in noodle boxes), the staff seemed a bit bored, but the toilets were filthy. The food was reasonable.

Four friends out to lunch, service was acceptable, view was good, three of us ordered the calamari $19.00 and our other friend the toasted sandwich $14.50. The plate came with a handful of rocket lettuce and 5 rings of calamari cut in halves, with an aoli dressing, sorry that does not constitute a main meal, Both my mate and I are Qualified Chefs and were discussing a week after that, there should be no food dished up like that in Melbourne, where there is an abundant supply of wholesalers that supply food at competitive prices, there were no chips or wedges served with that main meal!!

We dined here for lunch. The waitress was friendly and the restaurant has a nice view out to the water. The food however was awful. The barramundi and chips which cost almost $30 were deep fried in cheap dirty oil. My partner had a few bites and left the meal unfinished. The corn fritters, which should have been a healthy option, had slimy grease pouring out of them. The serving sizes were small and presentation a disgrace... it looked the food had been thrown onto the plate from a metre away. We all felt sick after the food and felt like we needed our insides washed out. I suspect this restaurant never replaces the oil it uses for cooking and hasn't spent the money on hiring a qualified chef. Any chef who has pride in their job would not have plated up that sort of rubbish.
