We were staying a few days in Nelson Bay and decided to try the Sandpipers Restaurant and were not disappointed. We did not have a booking but were able to get a table. The Chef's selection was chosen by both of us and it was superb. We will definitely dine at this restaurant in the future when we visit the area again. The choice of dishes on the menu was very good as well as the service - the waitresses were very helpful.

We are locals who dined with visiting friends. Although the restaurant was totally full our meals were delivered on time and the wait staff were exceptionally friendly and professional. We run a bed and breakfast facility in the area and will definitely be recommending this restaurant to our guests.

Saw this place on trip advisor with good reviews. Can honestly say that there were all right. This restaurant is a gem. The quality of service and the food are both excellent. We had the mid week evening menu which had a good choice and all the dishes the three of us had were very well presented and tasted excellent, high quality throughout at an affordable price. The dessert tasting plate provided a sample of each of the deserts, portions more than adequate in themselves. Would have no hesitation in recommending this place.

I wanted to share our great gastronomic experience at Sandpipers with you. First off, the atmosphere was buzzing and the restaurant looked fabulous as we were taken to our table. My husband and I were accompanied by two lively young boys and I wondered how the evening of fine dining would go as it was a busy Saturday night in the holidays. We weren't disappointed. The service was prompt and courteous and the food was memorable. Duck spring rolls for me, avocado stack for my husband and dory and gnocchi for the boys. We had to squeeze in dessert and the taste plate of citrus tart, creme catalina, caramelised banana and white chocolate spring rolls with raspberry coulis was art installation meets taste extravaganza. We are a global nomadic family and this dining experience was one of the best we've experienced here in Australia.

Lunch menu was incredibly tasty for both adults and kids. Staff were fantastic with the kids too. Salt & pepper squid was perfectly tender.
