“Delicious. No more words needed”
Reviewed May 20, 2014 via mobile

We had a great date night at Seasons on Sunday. The El Diablo cocktail was my fave and husband love Pickled Pig Jinga cider. The food was amazing, our entrees were cucumber & gin gazpacho and charcuterie selection, both good but the mains were to die for, beef cheeks and pork belly. We were so stuffed we couldn't fit in dessert. The service was great but the food was the stand out. We will definitely be going back when in Kingscliff.

“A fine venue losing its value”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

My wife and I often stay in Kingscliff for the quiet and for daytripping around the area. We've dined at Seasons on 5 occasions for dinner. This last one was a let down with unbalanced flavours in both entrees and mains. Scant portions with over-zealous visual presentation seems to be the go now.

I had the Kangaroo Biltong at $ 22 for entree. Small bits of food totally mismatched with kangaroo jerky and over done yabbies and jellied clams with red quinoa tabouli. This sounded interesting but I realised my mistake. Deep and dark game flavours with dry overcooked seafood doesnt work. Red quinoa tabouli was pretty but with no flavour. A gimick dish this one with lots of visual but no understanding of falvour compliment. For main I had the Angus Beef Cheek ($38). Well, it was only small pieces equal to about one quarter of a cheek. Again, lots of colour but no food value nor taste save for the creamed leeks, which, though delicious, only provided a taste. The spinach puree again was dabbed as a visual component and could not in any real terms, contribute to anything else on the plate.

At the end of the meal, neither the mouth nor the stomach had any satisfaction. The current chef seems to be arguing for a more exclusive client but the experiment is not one that considers taste and value above all. Visually as striking as anything else out there but the tongue matters first, not the eye,

As the venue has had a solid history with my wife and I, this was a sore disappointment. We will not be going back as Seasons has wandered off the path.

“excellent food”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

We dine at Seasons on a semi regular basis - the food is excellent - service is also excellent though almost a little too polished. Our thanks to the chefs for cooking up such beautiful food.
We will continue to eat there. .
Furniture is very cold to sit on as they are hard plastic seats - so this does put a damper on the whole affair.

Amazing helpful staff and delicious variety of food!
Dirk (the restaurant manager) went well out of his way to make our Bridal Shower event the best it could be.
Everyone had an excellent time and the food was quality and fresh.
Thank you to Dirk and the staff for giving us a memorable experience.

“Fabulous food”
Reviewed April 22, 2014 via mobile

Six of us dined in this restaurant and everyone was impressed with there meals. Great concept in using local produce theme with packaged courses at reasonable prices. Great service, atmosphere and mix of delicate flavours in all the meals.
