We enjoyed a very good lunch here in December, 2016. Two people had the chicken pasta with pesto, one had broiled barramundi, and one had fish and chips. Everyone enjoyed their meal very much.

Perfect spot to sit and watch the world go by... Friendly staff and great tasting food. Am local and this is often where I bring friends from out of town. It's dog friendly and good value.

Right out the front of our accommodation, with 10% off if staying at Sayari resort. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner, great food. Good for a cold drink and snacks while watching the beach and beautiful views.

We had some really excellent food here and some less. We had breakfast here for 3 mornings. Large and good choice of Breakfast. Very beautifull and fresh! except... my kids pancakes, when I tasted them they where dry and didn't taste like more (that's why probably my 4 year old didn't finish them). The evening dinner the same. They serve... More

As a local we have eaten here a few times. Usually pick from specials board and lovely fresh flavours. Great tasty cocktails and staff are friendly and genuinely pleased you have chosen to dine there. Great spot right on esplanade and stunning views of beach and another reminder of why we live in paradise.

Perfect place for Breakfast, Poached eggs were wonderful. The service was fast and served with a smile and wit even though they were quite busy they kept up with keeping everyone happy.

Went for breakfast and experienced tasteless food, no fresh juices and average service. The deco front view is inviting but the restaurant doesn't deliver well.
