A really lovely restaurant with white tablecloth and reasonable prices! We were bowled over by the delicious scallops in a white wine and herb sauce for me and Porterhouse steak with scallops and prawns for him, lovely salad side and a good house wine selection, loved the friendly service and great views of Picton harbour watching the ferries. Not easy... More

A group of us had dinner here recently and what a great spot! The staff were friendly and accommodating, plenty of options to cater for different food needs and oh so tasty food. Lovely view out over the harbour. Being early January they still had Christmas decorations up and it's a must see for Christmas fanatics!! Would definitely come back... More

There is a sign outside saying , "We may look expensive but we aren't ...come and see." I have no idea why the sign is there as they do not look expensive in any way especially as they are sited next to the Picton Yacht Club Hotel. There is no air con so you either cook or bear the noise... More

Took a family group here who were visiting from out of town. Everyone enjoyed their meals - the food was really tasty and large portions. The restaurant has a great view over the harbour, and a nice cosy relaxed atmosphere. Will definitely come back.

Unbelievable experience, the Christmas decor is out of this world. They could easily charge for the experience,I would even go as far as saying they should use this as a marketing tool.The options are endless. Now the service,the head matradi couldn't be faulted,she is a real asset guiding the two junior waiters with skill and a pleasant manner. Which brings... More

We were recommended by our B&B hosts to come to this restaurant after arriving in Picton! It was located at a convenient location. Good food. The portion was huge but it was delicious. With such a big meal, I shared a apple crumble with a friend for dessert. It was also very delicious! And free flow of coffee and tea(of... More

Beachcomber is an old Hotel but has been well looked after. The room that overlooked the harbour was great. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant and the food was excellent.

The hotel room upgrade for free was amazing. The room is amazing value for dollar. But let's get to the food... Exceptional service. Food came out quickly and waiters were friendly. The quality of the porterhouse steak was fantastic. Medium rare was just that, and the prawns and scallops that accompanied were extremely well done. My girlfriend and I reckon... More

After hearing other people recommend the Beachcomber Inn for their quality of dining, we decided to go there for dinner with another couple. We were welcomed and shown to our table. The menu was extensive and very reasonably priced. We all had something different and the meals were all we had been led to believe. Just beautiful. Well presented, the... More
