One of the more upmarket restaurants in town with a lovely harbour side location. Interesting choice of mainly seafood menu. However, timings of serving courses could be improved....cocktails, for example served BEFORE the first course.....first course then left 'under heat' before being served. Bar had run out of celery and tabasco for the cocktail!! And all this, on a not... More

Was really quite pleased with the food, service and atmosphere. Will definitely return but will not order the beef cheeks. A few small pieces hidden within pasta, cherry tomatoes (which I hate) and perhaps some mushrooms. Other dishes ordered by our table were huge and very delicious. Wine was excellent. Staff were polite and attentive.

We recently celebrated our Father's 80th Birthday with our special family, in October at See Restaurant. The day was magic, Lindsay greeted each of us so personally and professionally. She was a gem made us feel so special by remembering all our names. She gave the best service and was a step ahead always. Antonio and his team cooked up... More

Booked restaurant based on TripAdvisor reviews as a visitor to the area. Waitress delightful. Ordered monk fish & lemon sole. Both beautifully presented and flavoursome. Yes service was slower but we really appreciated the pace. You can eat inside or out. We chose outside with cooling breeze. It was quiet away from the busy ocean beach and we enjoyed the... More

Yes its true, we wanted to find this restaurant to see if it delivered to the campaign it was driving. It took us 15 minutes to find once parked at the wharf carpark. It is tucked away waterside on the right hand end near the blue turret. If you see the wacky lolly shop then you are at the right... More

We traveled from Caloundra to Mooloolaba to dine in the restaurant. It is a little hard to find with not many signs to find the place. Once we were there we had a nice table with a beautiful view. The seafood platter for 2 was a good size and was delicious. The service was ok and the amenities are a... More
