I don't know how anyone could say average food. Each meal we saw were very impressive. We had surf and turf, meat beautifully cooked and prawns excellent

“Average club food at club prices”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

With a commanding view over the water, this should be a pleasant dining experience and our guess is that it would be if you go at a time when the club is not busy. On a Friday night, when we went, the club was obviously under-staffed. there was no-one supervising sign-ins at the reception desk and the 3 ladies behind the bar were struggling to keep up with the 3-deep mob wanting drinks at the bar. The club is not acoustically well designed so that when there is a crowd in the dining area, there is a lot of noise.
Food, once it arrived, was good, no complaints there.

“Date night fail!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014 via mobile

We booked in for a special kid free date night and from the moment we walked in we were let down! The place was just an rsl, no atmosphere, in fact no service! We walked in and a waitress walked past without acknowledging us. we found our own table and waited for a menu......or something........Anything??? After about 10 mins we looked up trip advisor on our phone and found a fantastic place around the corner called Fish Devine. Date night saved!
