I went with 5 friends, there was poor service throughout the whole dining experiance, 20 Minute wait for cocktails only to be told one was not avaliable which would heva been nice to know 20 minutes before. I was served a beer in a hot glass straight from the dishwasher. We ordered wine with our meal which they forgot. When our meal come two of the meals were the wrong dish. I asked to be called by the manager the next day and received no call. Very dissapointing for a $500 meal.

We spent a short night there for drinks and desserts overseeing the beach. Very relaxing and the cocktail Tea House is wonderful! Desserts are great as well. Of course reserve some more cash for a meal there!

We ate outdoors on a beautiful night with a full moon. Very tropical and the food quality was excellent. For an Australian restaurant, we found the service from our waitress to be excellent. Try the soft shell crab and pork belly

A fantastic spot, palms, moonlight, sea, views, good food but the staff from hell.
20 +minutes wait to sit, 20 +minutes to get menu, 20 + minutes to order and more for the food. Which admittedly was attractive, fresh and generally tasty. 45 minute wait for a wine and one beer, busy you might think, no, only 4 tables to serve. I was ready to get up and get it myself. Coffee was cold by the time we got it. Waitperson said, upon us requesting another piece of 2cm x 3 cm bread. We could have it but we would have to pay extra for it!!! We were totally gobsmacked, not a word I'd usually use!
