Came for dinner on Saturday night. Waited for ages for our drinks and about 45 mins for entrees. The scallops had no taste and served on very old rocket that was turning yellow. The risotto that was supposed to contain seafood barely was more than...More

We have eaten here several times but not under new owners before. Menu is disappointing. Nothing on entree list looked appetizing. So skipped them. Opted for Bruschetta instead. Tasty but not amazing. Ordered steak, salmon and barramundi. All meals were tasty but not spectacular. Had...More

Hardly anything on the menu & in our party of 10 no one complimented the menu except to say it was expensive - chicken main meal too salty & steak main - more chips than steak. Disappointing & not cheap. Staff friendly though.

We have been here on several occasions and have found food and ambience very pleasant. However, the staff were inattentive and forgetful which spoilt our night. On one occassion we arrived without a booking at around 8.10pm to be told "the kitchen had closed" .....really...More

A casual dining venue with quality food. Whether dining for lunch or dinner the food is great....and the view is amazing. While sipping a good bodied red you are mesmerised by the ocean, and if lucky, the whales. A little difficult to find if you...More
