“Perfect as usual”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

We have dined here many times and it never disappoints.

Twice we have invited a few friends to dinner to celebrate our birthdays (our shout) and the menu was amazing. Everyone was very pleased with the meal and the amount of food on offer. We chose from a menu offered for a party and they were more than happy to change a dish or two.

Julia runs a great restaurant, great service, great ambience.

Have been back few times since our last party and are always very impressed with our meal.

Would certainly recommend.

“Have the gnocci!”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

Went there this evening. Overall the food was great, but the potato gnocchi was easily the best.

Definitely go there with the attitude to follow the intentions of the menu and share - you'll get to try a range of great dishes, including local seafood.

“Excellent - eat here!”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

Booked last minute and managed to get in on a Saturday night - it was heaving with 80+ covers which created a great atmosphere and the staff were amazing - taking time out to introduce their sharing plates, which we really enjoyed, and fully attentive all evening .. without being over fussy.

Puddings were also lovely.

In all a great restaurant, atmosphere, service ... just wish it was in England!!

“What a chef”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

When we arrived we were a bit nonplussed by the menu as is a share one, However ordered bread,, a main and a salad and all were fantastic. Also enjoyed the ambience.

“Great food- service can use improvement when busy.”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

The first time we went, the food was superb and the service was great. The second time they were busier and the service was not that great, they forgot our sides and the entree was stone cold (I actually had to get up and go to front of house to remind them about our sides as the waitress never came back to our table- the kitchen staff lady that came out and gave us out side AFTER we had finished our mains was a bit rude and did not apologize for the mix-up. The waitress eventually came back and apologized but by then we weren't enjoying our meal much). Plus the dessert drink I ordered- a hot buttered rum concoction was full of un-sieved bits of cinnamon and spices and was not really drinkable. I had to constantly spit out bits of chunky spices which ruined the experience. We are going again for a family dinner this weekend and hopefully the service will be up to scratch like the first time and I'll stay away from the stranger desserts. The prices are for fine dining so you expect excellent service and food. The serving sizes are small but that's not a bad thing as most hervey bay restaurants have servings that are far too big and cater to overweight people who want quantity not quality. If you want large portions of below-average food then go to hogs breath (gross). If you want regular portions of good quality food then dine at Coast- you will have room for desert and their chocolate terrine is to die for! So far they are one of the best restaurants we have come across in Hervey Bay (there is not much to choose from here). Keep up the good work, good service (keep your unfriendly kitchen staff away from the tables) and we will keep coming back for more delicious meals.
