Dorsal is opposite the beach in Forster. The outlook is fantastic, however the food lets this place down. And service, while OK, the stewardess did not know how to open a cork bottle of wine

Service was very poor, the food was well cooked but overly complex with an unnecessary number of ingredients . There seemed to be a lack of communication between the kitchen and the floor.

This restaurant has three sittings and is excellent for dinner inside & outside dining by the sea. We had salt & pepper squid for an entree and it was a great serve but scrumptious. Then a juicy steak and Atlantic salmon. It was good service and prompt. Recommend this location! Well done to the Dorsal staff!

Food is great, but is also enjoyable to just sit down and have a drink with the beach view. Little bit pricey but is definitely worth it. Love my visits to the Dorsal!

Had lunch at the Dorsel on Monday - fabulous view on the most amazing day. Food was nice, service average. Surprised that I was going to have to pay a surcharge if I paid by Mastercard so I paid cash which I suppose was not a big deal but this is the first time I have ever been asked to pay a surcharge in a restaurant. If I was in the area again I would have breakfast there just for the view at that time of the day.
