Went here today for lunch with my grandparents as it's my nana's 70th birthday. They love this place and come here often. I thought it was cute, quirky and had good food, but nothing really wowed me about it. Certainly a great place to eat and at reasonable prices. We shared spring rolls and garlic bread which were excellent and... More

This place has a nice view out to the Moana foreshore. There is indoor and outdoor seating, but they have packed it in and it can get a little cramped. The food is average on taste, but more expensive than similar dishes at other casual dining locations. There's nothing there that will blow your socks off :-( Now the bad... More

Hi Murray, while most establishments specify "no split bills" for this exact reason, we are happy to provide guests with the option. Our policy (advertised at the tills in A5) is that we will provide a split bill with the understanding that any outstanding balance is paid by the last person. We are sorry you didn't see the sign but... More

Went for Valentines Day, not to many people there. They have tables outside and inside. The place is Dog friendly. Really enjoyed it. The homemade spring rolls are to die for! It was really cheap and cheerful, lots to chose from, steak, salads, pizza, oysters, cake and coffee, a good selection of wines, they also make cocktails. The cafe is... More

Went there for Valentines day and wasn't disappointed, even do gluten free beer!! Recommend the spring rolls there to die for and home made, big serves so if your like me and had a stomach reduction one order of entree will fill you up because there quite large. Service great, will definitely go back.

We had fish and chips here, both eat in and takeaway, quite a few times. Could not fault at all. Their salt and pepper calamari is also very good. Will come back here many more times.

Plenty of parking in front of the cafe or along Moana Beach. I would recommend end booking for larger groups. Dinning inside or outside. Fast food service. We had dinner there around 6:30pm, and most of the tables were reserved. We were lucky to get a table for 4. Once the place filled up, there was a great vibe at... More

Have been visiting Moana for holidays for many years...this venue has changed over the years but Deep Blue have made their niche and hopefully will continue here for many years to come! Love the coffee and the food, especially Thai Curry! Always visit a few times during our holiday, only downside - not open for breakfast everyday, have to drive... More
