“Lovely spot but don't have the fish and chips”
Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

The setting overlooking the beach is very appealing, the staff did their job adequately but the food was not nice at all. For $ 25 I wold expect a reasonable piece of fish, but there seemed to be nothing but masses of oil laden beer batter and a small limp salad. It has left me feeling quite ill. There are much nicer places to eat in Lorne.

“Don't let the setting persuade you”
Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

Whilst set alongside the beach with a lovely view and ambience, this can not alone offset the quality of the food. ( no disrespect to the service staff). Foolishly I hadn't checked my trusty Trip Advisor before booking, to find an empty restaurant, ( a good clue) that things were not right. The food was largely served at room temperature, with some condiments actually cold. Didn't send it back, as we had already sent some of the starter back already, grin and bear it. To top it all off, this is a very very expensive restaurant, and does not deserve to be charging so much for the average food being delivered by service staff who kept a brave face.

“Overpriced with indifferent / unhelpful staff”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

On a schedule and went to the restaurant that advertises itself as open at 5.30, but the staff say it opens at 6. Ended up in the care and ordered 5 meals and a $36 dollar plate of what looked like entrees, which arrived after the main courses because 'we always do it like that'. Seafood linguine with chilli in sauce could not have been blander, rest of the food varied from 'all right' to 'nice' but for $160 we could have done better.
