“Breakfast and Lunch!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014

There for a golf trip, we three had a substantial breakfast, completed the first 9, then a sumptious lunch before the second 9. (The 2nd 9 wasn't as score perfect as the 1st!)

“What a joke”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

The kids playground is beautiful and the golf course is hard but amazing. The food on the other hand and the service in the restaurant are way below average.
Especially the scones. They seem to come out of a freezer and are rock hard.
When you go to a bar you usually go there to order a drink. Not at Paradise Palms. It seems the waiter thinks I'm standing at the bar for fun or to watch him polish glasses. I don't know how it is in Britain mate but here in Australia you'd expect someone to serve you. And the best is yet to come. The same gentleman called last drinks at 9pm. We were aware the kitchen closes early but to call last drinks at 9pm - what a joke!

“Good food, great environment to sit and relax”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

Located at paradise palms this restaurant is ideal for a quiet dinner out in the northern beaches. Food is prepared well and servings generous. But not fine dinning. The bar and seating overlook fabulous gardens of the golf course and make an ideal location day or night. Nice friendly staff and happy to look after your requests. Kids night Saturday night avoid this place like the plague if you are not big on kids being ignored by parents while they eat and dump their kids on the facilities supplied. Other than that I recommend this restaurant to locals and tourist alike.

Great facility, kids area, semi exclusive feel, great views .... Crappy food... It might be the chefs day off , but seriously , i am borderline not paying for this, how can a ceser salad be so poor..... Sack the chef and manager .

“Top dollar for low quality”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2014 via mobile

It was our second time dining here and thought we would give it another chance for lunch. We were not impressed the first time and certainly not impressed the second time. The food was well, in one word, horrible. The kids cheeseburger is a frozen meat patty that they cook which does not look healthy or even fresh as is the case with the two slices of pizza they served which looked like it came out of a frozen McCain pizza box. Not sure why this place does not update or change its menu but considering the kids playground and golf course is good then they should be able to do better with their food. As for the adult meals the only safe thing to eat which does not come from a frozen package is the chicken burger and panini. Would only eat here again as an absolute last resort!!! I think they can do better with their food choices. Not good enough.
