“Wedding - poor service”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

Our daughters Wedding was held at EBB - Maroochydore on Saturday 29th March.
What a wonderful venue! The Wedding Planner - Claire has lots to offer but unforthnately on the day it is not delivered.

If you are looking at this venue here are some suggestions:

1. Make sure you check the minimum spend as it is not advertised
2. Be aware that the decorations and ceremony chairs etc are not part of the package even though they are in the brochure
3. Catering - Check the number of staff serving. Whilst there is no limit on the amount served over the time period - 1 staff serving 95 guest = very hungry Guests
4. Check what roles the staff play. eg will they manage the music for the ceremony, attend to last minute decorating - lighting candle, putting flowers on plinths etc, attend to a guest who has fallen in the toilet.
5. Check that they are flexible with the set time table.

“Disappointed Local Regular Diner.”
Reviewed March 27, 2014 via mobile

I have eaten about twice a month at Ebb since moving to the area but think I will be giving the place a miss for a while. I had tried calling all week to book a table for two for Friday lunch. Ebb's number simply rang out every time I called, no message bank or answering machine! Finally some one answered the phone when I called last night. I was bluntly told, "no booked out" and hung up on.

“Great lunch”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

Just had a great lunch there - food and service was really pleasant. Really good lunch specials too and we were in and out in an hour - just what we wanted. Two courses and a glass of wine for around $42.00 - WOW what a great price.

“Perfect, just perfect.”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

We had this restaurant as our reception venue for our wedding after eating here previously and loving it.
The staff were so helpful and friendly whilst we were planning the reception and liaised directly with our suppliers which was a great help. They were accommodating and helped the whole process immensely as well as being our back up for last minute ceremony location change if it rained, thankfully it did not!
The food was exquisite, the canapés were stunning as well as delicious, the meat tender, fish soft,the flavours Devine and the wine perfect! I could not and would not have wanted to change a thing.
Now the location.... It is stunning. There is no other way to describe it, it is directly on the Maroochy river and the views on the sand bars, across the water and beyond are just lovely, it has a real outdoors indoors feel too with the huge glass windows opening out onto this view.
To add to this, even though they are not what you would classically call a child friendly restaurant (simply because the food is more adult themed) they do have some children's selections and they catered to our 10 child guests wonderfully both in food but also in transforming an area of the restaurant into a kids area with games, DVDs etc.
Overall the whole experience made our day not only perfect but also incredibly relaxed (not an easy feat with 10 children!!)
Thank you to Ebb and their staff, a truly memorable day and a business I will happily recommend to all and one which I know we will be frequenting often.

“Ok food, restaurant tired?”
Reviewed February 23, 2014 via mobile

Quite nice fairly ordinary food, if limited choice. Quite ordinary service too but what surprised me in view of the other reviews was the maintenance. The concrete floor outside was dirty, the planter boxes were dead? The pool needs more pebbles as the wires are showing through. The umbrella was broken, and the outside stools were very dirty. Same even with the front entrance door and general surrounds. Resting on its laurels a bit, given its previous good food reputation, but a restaurant is more than food, esp when weddings are your mainstay. Get out the broom guys.
