“Great Night”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

Thanks loquat for a Fantastic meal and great service. We had the fresh flinders mussels
and baked octopus for entree. Main meal we chose the salmon and the pasta and for sweets
the chocolate fondat was to die for. Chose a bottle of local wine to have with our meals and finished with coffee and port. Thanks again

“Dining in the dark!”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

As we studied our exciting menu all went into darkness and no power for the Sorrento area for 6 hours. Under stressful circumstances Loquat staff coped admirably and provided a limited menu in hot conditions. Half the patrons deserted the restaurant so thought we stayers could have been Acknowledged with complimentary sorbet !

“Top night out!”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

We had dinner here while on weekend away in Portsea. You have the option of paying for two meals or three at a set cost. There is a generous selection from the menu to choose from. I had terrine and the duck along with a great local pinot! We loved it. The food and wine was great and the service couldnt be faulted. I have since checked if it was listed in the Good Food Guide and was supprised that although it has a mention, it is not rated like some other restaurants in the area and I also thought that the write up didnt do it justice. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys good food and wine that is looking for something more than a 'bistro' meal.

“Lovely Loquat”
Reviewed December 21, 2012 via mobile

This is a favorite dinning spot. Close to the action but not in the swill. Nice selection of dishes with specials that change seasonally. Bubbles by the glass is always good - in fact, the wine list has had some interesting offerings. I would recommend the Alsace Riesling or the Nebbiolo. We like having a drink in the bar before sitting down for dinner. Relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff and people who know their food and wine.

“Beware of misleading menu, overpriced steak , very average.”
Reviewed December 14, 2012 via mobile

Sign outsite looks old and shabby, inside is still nice , lady with blonde hair and glasses was nice and friendly, unfortunately we were not advised of the set out of the menu.

I asked earlier in the day and thy advised me that the specials and the the first page which had the date on it was the 2 or 3 course price indicated on board outside .
Consumer affairs should look into there misleading advertising!

This is not the case the special price was for a very small choice on the bottom of the page.

This is very misleading as you would think that the A la cart would be the normal prices and the first page should be the special price menu.

I questioned the lady with dark hair begin the bar and she was rude and quite unhelpful , I explained that it would be better to put the special price menu on a separate page or clearly indicate this and get staff to explain it properly. She was not interested and was saying that's the way it is!

Bad customer service by management.
Nice presentation of food.
Slow service .
Overpriced steak which was tough!
Misleading advertising so be aware! Ask if unsure.
