“Would have gotten 5 stars bar for cost of the cocktails”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

We had eaten here before and were OK with it but not fans. Well our recent visit has changed that. We had the chefs tasting platter and a flat bread with fresh tomato, olives, basil and goats cheese everything was fantastic. The ceviche was awesome, even Bryan who is not a fan loved it.
We ask the waiter if the place had changed owners since we were last there, no but they have made some major changes, whatever they were they worked.
The only downside was the price of the cocktails at $17 each we thought that over the top. They were delicious and unlike most cocktails you order these days did have alcohol in them. Seriously, they simply cost too much.
We will definitely be back, I suspect many times but will stay clear of the cocktails.

“Poor service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

A table of 8. Steaks over cooked, other food ok. It took about 1 hr 10min to have final meal brought out. Told twice that meals were being brought out but had to approach management and was told plating up now. We still waited another 10 minutes. Restaurant was not that busy to start with and other tables also were served meals even though they arrived after our table.

“Very tasty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

Had a dinner at local Italian Restaurant and with full table service and very delicious meal, what a great choice.. Despite the busy dinner time, staff very friendly and food divine.. The beautiful view of the AB foreshore only added to our experience...

“Worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

Surprised this isn't #1 on Trip Advisor. Probably one of the best Barramundi's I've had. The service was flawless. Would highly recommend a visit to this lovely restaurant.
