What should have been a great night out wasn't. Although in a great location, fantastic weather and with a group of wonderful friends, nothing could overcome the awful food and sarcastic waiter. Meals are described beautifully on the menu, but delivery to the table is nothing short of a letdown. Chicken dish was more stuffing than chicken, accompanied by watery barley which had the taste sensation of watery porridge. Lamb dishes were extremely fatty and inedible. The waiter oozed sarcasm, and was more like a school teacher in his manner than a helpful waiter, feeling that the clients were to follow his rules, wait until he was ready to ask questions, and when a question was permitted he would roll his eyes and sigh, and put his hand on the patrons shoulder to explain. Not suited to the industry. Prices of meals in line with Sydney city restaurants, but quality of a Y7 learning to cook.

Dined here recently & had a lovely night.

The food was excellent & tasty, the wines were great & atmosphere was relaxed & comfortable.

Staff were friendly & helpful & had a thorough knowledge of their menu.

The garlic infused rosemary sweet potatoes were heavenly!!!

Dessert was just right with peanut butter ice cream a real favourite.

Nothing better then starting the day with breakfast from The Blue Swimmer @ Gerroa! Sit on the deck & enjoy the gorgeous views looking out over Seven Mile Beach whilst you have a great coffee. My favourite for breakfast is the Smoked Ocean Trout with perfect poached eggs, holandaise sauce, baby spinach & potatoes - simply fantastic. Caroline, the chef, does great eggs every time & the ocean trout is smoked on site. Cortney, Donna & Kim are all fantastic & always make you feel so welcome. If you haven't dined here then check it out. Lunch & dinner are also amazing! Cheers Tricia.
