The menu is a mediterranean mix & offered a very interesting variety. The chorizo, baby octopus, shared platter (as entrees) were excellent. Mains included seafood fettuccine, paella as well as grilled fish & meats. We enjoyed our mains - all well prepared & decent portions. The seafood was succulent & fresh. Price wise - not cheap but overall good value for an upmarket dining venue in Broome. (Average cost approx $60/head with a drink).

The restaurant (located at the Pinctada Cable Beach resort) was well decorated & had a nice breezy feel with high ceilings, cool air flow from the ceiling fans & warm lighting. The service was top notch & recommendations from our waiter were spot on. Attentive & friendly - we were made to feel special & despite the restaurant being 3/4 full, everything was smooth from topping up our drinks & water to timing of when our dishes arrived & then cleared away.

Overall a most enjoyable meal & I would recommend this place for a nice evening out in Broome.

We had a beautiful, tasty meal here last night. Everything was perfect. If I was to criticise anything, the paella needed a touch more spices, but other than that it was faultless.

The price and the service where without fault. Broome is supposed to be a food mecca. Frankly I haven't seen it in the 3 months I have been here. However, last night was the exception.

We ate here 3 times during our week's stay in Broome, mostly because it was next door to the Bali Hai Resort were we were staying and was therefore the closest restaurant, and partly because of the paella - which was excellent.

The restaurant has both indoor and outdoor seating areas that are equally appealing. Whilst we tried a couple of different entrees I stayed with the paella as a main on each occasion. My wife chose a different main, pork, on one evening and although this was OK, was disappointed that it was not as good as the paella. Reasonable wine list.

Staff very friendly, regularly asking if everything was OK which made us even more surprised when our mains were brought to the table one evening absent the entrees beforehand that we had ordered. Waiter initially accused the kitchen of having stuffed it up but quickly came back to apologise that the error had been his. Restaurant was far from being full so not sure how this happened. Offer to bring the entrees after the mains was declined by us.

Luckily the paella was so good otherwise we would not have come back.

After reading the reviews it appeared food was good in most people's opinion but service was not great. I have to agree. The staff were friendly but lacked on timing. Waited a while on drinks and continually called for a waiter or waitress to come over for service. Food was delicious. It is expensive not somewhere I could afford to eat at all the time but great for a nice treat
