“Great!”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

This restaurant has a great atmosphere, food, service - all tops. The menu is so varied, there's something here for everyone. And Sunday nights you can take your own wine - a little bonus! Our group had a variety of food & all very happy. Such a nice place to spend an evening.

“Not as good as we expected”
Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

Waitress & seater very polite & friendly, more than happy with the service & ambience especially sitting out over the water. I had the eye filet steak & it was over salted & a little chewy. I was told it came with beans, about 4 or 5. If I'd known it was so few I would of ordered a salad too. Had a creamy garlic sauce, not that great. Partners seafood linguine was good & we enjoyed the shared licorice brûlée. But for the price expected to be wowed.

“Refreshing!”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

Spontaneous Saturday lunch with family ...decided to try Harbourside out for a change. Super easy parking, stunning setting (helps if the suns shining) with lovely water views. Attentive service, menu with lots of variety and very generous, tasty portions. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Only one small observation / criticism ......the waiting time between courses was about five / ten minutes longer than it needed to be / should have been ....and we werent in any rush but still felt like it all took too long.

Despite this ....a fabulous, local eatery which comes highly recommended.
