“Great view, good food, average service”
Reviewed December 22, 2012 via mobile

We were here yesterday and had a nice enough time drinking cold drinks on the balcony and decided to stay for dinner.
The staff are a bit hit and miss - the first bar lady we ordered from was a little rude and patronising, hearing our British accents, she assumed we were stupid or completely new to Aussie bars, when we've lived in Australia for years! Another bar lady was lovely and helpful, whilst the others were very impersonal, not like the rest of places in Airlie.
Food was good, seafood was really fresh and large portions.
Go with an open mind and admire the view and cheaper prices :)

“Worst service ever!”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

The view is nothing short of spectacular but the staff were the worst I have come across in a long time... Rude, uninterested and awfully unhelpful. We have a small child with a potato allergy and after explaining this and asking for vegetables for a kids meal his plate came covered with chips. Asking again for vegetables the staff looked totally inconvenienced, 30 minutes later came vegetables that were inedible. Its such a pity because the location is magic....but the service really ruined our experience.

“Great view but staff lack enthusiasm”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

I have eaten here a few times now and I enjoy sitting on the deck, looking over the water and enjoying a meal and drink. The food here is nice, but the staff always seem unhappy. It would be such a better place if the staff actually looked like they enjoyed being there.
