Service is meh. Location is great. Nice view of the marina out to the ocean. The food is overpriced and the portions are small. No vegan options. Vegetarians don't have much choice either.

Really liked this place. Great food, we had the Pizza & Steaks as well as Oysters. It's located away from the main drag of Airlie Beach, near the harbour and it is family friendly. Good bar area and eck to sit out on as well as a more formal restaurant. Good service too

Following pretty good reviews here on TA, we booked dinner at Sorrento. Overall we were somewhat disappointed - firstly the menu selection is fairly limited and secondly it doesn't have a true Italian feel to it. There were only a handful of pasta dishes and none being filled pasta, a fair selection of pizzas but these were nothing special. I have the eye fillet on mash and beans - the mash was lumpy and the eye fillet not medium rare as requested (I knew I should have asked for it "rare"), I can cook an eye fillet at least as well as this at home - while nothing wrong with it, nothing special either. My wife and son had the veal, which again was nothing special. On to deserts - one of our party had the last of the "house cake" (there would have been a number of disappointed diners that night as we were on deserts at 8.00pm), other deserts were OK but still nothing special.

Service was also a bit blunt, not overly knowledgeable with the main problem probably arising due to use of "transient" labour and thus not experienced and certainly not well trained.

The view and location is great although there is no convenient parking and as the dining area is upstairs with the bar downstairs - access for elderly or disabled may be difficult.

Absolutely loved the pasta dishes that were only $15 between 3-5pm, that on top of the amazing views made for a fantastic afternoon of dining. Will definitely return ASAP!

Had dinner here twice during our holiday. Once as a couple and again with our two teenagers. Lovely to sit out on the balcony and look at the lights on the yachts. Food was delicious with couple of veg options for our son. Service was good on both occasions.
