We dined at night. Trying to find a park was horrendous but worth the effort. From the moment we entered we were given attentive but not intrusive service. We were seated in the far corner which as a couple was good as it was away from the noise of the larger groups. The seating plan is a bit squashed. We shared the brushetta & dips for entrees & they were of a good size for only $9 each. Our 2 fish main dishes were not oversized in portion but were large on taste. The dessert of grant burge champagne float with blood orange & champagne gelato was interesting if not a bit steep in price. My partner's dark chocolate brownie sundae was delicious. The icing on the cake was the cost of the wine - a bottle of Grant Burge for $23! Unheard of to give a brand of this level at this price. They opened the large windows & we sat sipping as we looked over the moonlit beach listening to the waves breaking. Life can't get better than that. Julie K

We had the most perfect day and the beach-side setting took full advantage of that. As with other reviewers, we found the service to be quite slow, which is quite a pity as it holds back from what would otherwise be a really good dining experience. We had a table booked for 1.30, and didn't mind having to wait a few minutes for one to be clear for us as we realised that it was full from earlier sittings.

However once seated, it was a long time before anyone came to take our order. Only one of our five ordered an entree, Oysters Natural, which still took about 15 minutes to appear, which meant it was even longer (over an hour) before the mains arrived, so 4 of us went hungry, wondering if we were going to end up having dinner rather than lunch. The food was quite pleasant enough, but a bit pricey for what it was in my book.

Stood at entrance for a bit before anyone acknowledged us. Plenty of employees walked by us but never said a word. The view is amazing. Right on Cronulla Beach. Crispy skin salmon with gnocchi was delicious. Wish there has been more gnocchi.

Last visit was on a weekday for breakfast. THe view was magnificent, the food very good, but the service, although very friendly, was very slow.

We have come here for years for a special daytime outing together or with friends and have never been disappointed with a meal. It is usually very busy at peak times so we tend to go in the tween time. Staff have always been good and the position is wonderful so close to the beach. I might add that are friends are usually from overseas and used to varied international travel.
