Great settings - lots of lounging chairs on the deck with heating for the cooler nights. Inside comfortable and pleasant seating. Burgers gourmet style - not fine dining but very pleasant indeed. Modern, eclectic styling, wood panels and smart attentive staff. Australia still has a way to go to get out of the Italian it is food scene.

My partner and I enjoyed a wonderful meal here last night after watching a comedy show in the ballroom of this restaurant.

We booked online for 8:45pm as that was the only time avaliable. We turned up at 8:15pm and expected to have to wait at the bar, but instead we were shown to an avaliable table by a very professional waitress.

Our table was perfect and was right by the window so we had a great view of the ocean.

Our waiter was excellent and explained the menu in appropriate detail.

We ended up sharing a crab spread entree on sour dough bread which was absolutely devine and on par with the sardine spread dish at Ombra restaurant.We ordered the burgers for our main as they sounded so yummy. I had the fish burger and my partner had the halomi burger and we ordered a side salad. These burgers were delicious and the curly fries were a nice touch to.

We were reasonably full, but looking at the dessert menu we could not look past sharing a peanut butter and chocolate dessert. This dessert was really rich and was worth sharing. I would definitely recommend trying this dessert if you have room after you meal.

The staff here are superb and were not too in your face, but were avaliable when you needed them.

We were able to use our Entertainment Book card which meant that we got one of our mains for free which brought the price down a bit. This place is suprisingly afforable considering the quality of the meals.

If you want a lovley night out by the water give this place a go.

Luckily it was a beautiful evening so we could happily sit outside and had a drink and a couple of snack platters. We were with family and friends and could have a good chat and catch up.

Seven of us dined here on Friday night for a birthday celebration. We had all heard great comments about Foxglove so were anticipating something special. Both the bar and restaurant were very busy and extremely noisy, but we had expected this and once all the office dwellers finished their Friday night drinks the place calmed down significantly. We were all impressed with the excellent service and the great food we received.

Between the 7 of us we tried the beef, chicken, smoked Kahawai, fish burger and beef burger. All were delicious and really well presented. The meals we ordered were reasonably priced and good value, the desserts were superb. As it was my birthday I left it to my husband to look after the wines and he was impressed at how reasonably priced the wines were. Well done Foxglove, we'll be back again soon.

I have never had such an awful meal in all my life and that's saying something. Our entire table decided to have burgers. Not something I would usually do but there was little choice of mains and nothing appealed. We had 3 different types if burgers and all were underwhelming. They were cold, boring and the fries so salty they were barely edible. Great service, beautiful surroundings, what a waste. It's just awful!
