“Disappointing”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

After reviewing the menu online and whilst seated in the restaurant we were looking forward to the restaurant' s signature Seafood Platter for 2. More than half an hour after we placed our order what we were served was nothing more than an expensive deep fried fishermans basket for the over inflated price of almost $70.00.

We expected as the menu's offered.....Two whole king prawns, crumbed prawns,shell scallops, salt & pepper calamari, pickled calamari, grilled atlantic salmon & blue swimmer crab, served with chips & salad There were no whole king or crumbed prawns and the substituted prawn wraps were meagre to say the least, the scallops were no existant on the plate and replaced by tiny, overcooked marron. The grilled salmon was very oily and again overcooked. I could not see any crab aside from a small deep fried morsel which was inedible due to the overuse of cummin. There was no pickled calamari to be seen anyhere. The whole platter was served at a temperature which varied from tepid at best to cold. Even the chips were soggy and cold!

Disappointed that we were not asked at the conclusion of our meal if we enjoyed it but was asked within a minute of it being served to the table.Even more disappointing was that I took a guest for his 50th Birthday and to say I was embarrassed was an understatement, especially when leaving hungry.

“Excellent”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

The meal was fantastic
would have liked fresh vegetables instead or frozen.
The service was incredible. The wait staff very friendly and very helpful, even with our gluten free requirements.
I would have like to have had more GF options though, but the waitress even asked if we would like GF bread with our meal which was a wonderful surprise.
Well done staff.

“A wonderful experience - Highly recommended”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Last night was the second time I have dined at Baudins at McCracken, and for a second time I was impressed, not just with the stunning views, and beautifully prepared delicious food, but mostly by the warm, attentive and accommodating staff. From the moment we entered, the staff were attentive, friendly and willing to deal with our (sometimes frustrating) dietary requirements, and the fact we came in with a new born baby. Even when things went wrong (our meals took about 45 minutes to an hour to come out), the staff dealt with the problem perfectly, apologizing for the delay, and generally doing everything they could to make up for the problem. I can't recommend Baudins highly enough - If you are in the area, give them a go! Thank you for giving us a wonderful evening.

Friendly and helpful staff. Without any fuss a gliche in the food service was quickly and quietly remedied.
