It was a 70th Birthday Dinner. Staff very friendly and attentive - forgot to mention the board specials. Excellent choices of Seafood on the menu, some of the entree's very small and the price expensive. Wine selection is going to be reviewed. As an overall experience - a once a year outing would be possible. The restaurant is geared for... More

Nice selection of seafood and meat dishes. Seafood platter looked a bit deep fried - glad we didn't choose it. Barramundi with black rice, and kingfish mains were very nice (and sufficient size). Kids meals were good. Drinks and cocktails selection was good and not too expensive. Friendly staff. Quiet on the night we went with just 4 other tables.... More

Mooloolaba offers many lunching options along the esplanade but we were after something a little bit more special, preferably with a water view and at 34 degrees summer heat, Air conditioning!! See definitely delivered all that and more. Tucked under the tower at the wharf with 180 degree water views it really is a treat. The menu had many interesting... More

We went out to treat ourselves - and we were definitely treated here! We had called up at lunch time to book a table for 2 and sat down for dinner at 6:30pm to the sun setting over the harbor. The waitress was very attentive, always had our drinks full (Sparkling water) and was very helpful! We had the duck... More

yes the setting is lovely and it is one of the few restaurants in Mooloolaba with airconditioning (needed in this hot weather) but the aircon did not work very well so I found the restaurant quite hot.. We both had fish as a main course ... the king fish was a very small serve for the price. There were special... More

Started off so well - the prawns and oysters were lovely and service great with our wine glasses being topped up during this time. We then had a 40 minute wait for our main courses of Barramundi which unfortunately were slightly over cooked and the dish just didn't gel! We didn't bother with dessert. Not a place I would rush...

Setting was beautiful with views of the sea a nice classy decor too. Service was prob one of if not the best I have received in a restaurant. Exciting menus and all dishes we ordered had that wow factor when the dishes were presented and tasted as great as they looked. Red wine was good too. Price a bit on... More

We shared a seafood platter for two between three. The most tender calamari, morten bay bugs, oyesters, fish and much more serviced with fruit and a superb salad. The waiters were exceptional, no extra charge for sparkling water, and chosen wines to accompany the meal.

The food unfortunately is not what it used to be. The friendly service did not make up for the flavourless duck & bland risotto. Having ordered a range of different dishes and eating there before, I can confidently say that the food is not what it used to be, nor does it resemble the photos on their website as it... More
