“Good but Expensive”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Great spot for dinner, very alfresco!
Staff were very polite and charming.
However the menu was a bit flat for a restaurant of this price, not much variety.
Also very expensive for whats on offer and orders aren't even taken at the tables.
Food was lovely though, We chose off the specials board, check them out.

“Awesome food with a view”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Had a delicious summertime lunch here. My wife had an enormous burger with the lot, I had chicken wings and a chicken burger. Food was exquisite, service was fantastic. Had to have a cheeky dessert too!

“Below average, high prices”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

Capers curry tasted like it was 4 days old, should have thrown it in the bin, chef. Very over priced for below average food. Who serves wedges with curry, yuk! The locals stopped going here years ago. Won't be back. No ordering at the table, have to line up at the bar, less staff but still overpriced.

“Great bar and restaurant ”
Reviewed 1 August 2014 via mobile

This is a great bar on the esplanade. Good selection of craft beers and of course wines, spirits and cocktails. Food is good quality pub food, I have had the fish and steak on two separate visits and both were excellent. This is a great place to sit with a bottle of wine or a few beers as the sun goes down.
