The menu was interesting, ingredients were sourced locally and the food delicious. All this watching the sun set over Great Oyster Bay was a lovely experience. We found the service very good.

The mussels are huge and fresh from the local area. We were very happy with all our orders, however, our server was disengaged and disappointing. I think some basic training in fine-dining could go along way. The hostess who greeted us, on the other hand, was very friendly and more polished than the server himself. It's always unfortunate to have bad service when the food itself is great... When the bill is this high, it needs to be great on both sides.

One of us is vegan; no problem with ensuring our needs were catered for. Efficient and friendly service.

Loved watching the sunsets, the ambience of the restaurant, the amazing views, steaks cooked to order with a beautiful sauce, really special imaginatively presented desserts, best porridge in the world!

We totally enjoyed ourselves. Food and service was very good but not quite fine dining. Food menu was good and provided very good variety and chose.

Wine list was quite good and the staff showed some good knowledge of the wines and the food for that matter.

Views are very nice but the decor, more alpine style is different and more suited to a cold, snow climate than a beach environment. Mind you it is Tasmania so perhaps very suitable.

Clearly the restaurant is used for buffet breakfasts for the in-house guests. The cover service area is a bit tacky if they are trying to deliver high quality fine dining.

In all, I stress that we had a great night.
