We went there this week. The food was bland, the lamb was tough and tasteless, the fish and chips was a children's serve. It was overpriced and ordinary. Loved The Pier - Hated The Sailors Club. For the same prices and great views - try Dunbar House at Watsons Bay - much better food, service everything!!!

People are so quick to criticise this day and not to compliment, so I wanted to take the opportunity to say what a phenomenal experience we had in your restaurant today.

We bought my sister for her birthday (3 of us in total) and had an amazing lunch from start to finish. We were greeted at the door by a lovely woman who showed us to our table, and continued to be waited on by the most incredibly attentive and friendly staff. (Our sandy haired waiter deserves special mention) The special touch of being offered a complimentary cocktail for my sister in recognition of her special day was a pleasant surprise.

We ordered a mixture of entrees and specials and shared all the plates around and had the joy of tasting the trout, tuna, salmon, zucchini flowers - all flavour explosions. Not to mention to delicious sides.

The maitre d was cheerful and my sister's coeliac issues were met with concern and care.

All in all a fantastic experience. We will recommend like crazy to our friends your beautiful restaurant.

The fish was cooked well. The sald was too salty. The desert was a complete disaster. We ordered tiramisu and got a bad case of chocolate cake and this was very disappointing

Great food - Great venue. The service was very good and friendly but the food & drink prices were quite expensive. I also found the seats (yellow metal, which looked great) to be a little hard and cold after being seated for a couple of hours.
Suggestion: Cushions on seats would be appreciated by more mature diners!

The manager of this restaurant is incredibly arrogant and rude. I have visited once for lunch which was nice enough, but over priced for what it was. My husband and I visited over the weekend for a drink in the bar and were rudely asked to leave by the manager (after he first blatantly looked us up and down) claiming the restaurant was at capacity however we could see that they were less than half full. Please think twice about visiting this place - yes the location is lovely and the view amazing, but if this is what you are looking for in particular, make a booking instead at Catalina just around the corner.
