My partner and I decided to stay at Moby's this weekend as, on a previous trip to Forster (Dec 2012) we had eaten at their restaurant, Buddha by the Beach, and LOVED the food! But the menu had changed =( the scallops were to die for but were taken off the menu. The salt and pepper calamari had also been taken off but we later found out it was on the specials menu, but the salad served with it was slightly different (it was amazing the first time!). These two dishes blew us away on our first visit and I'd love to see them back on the menu. In saying this the food was still fantastic, but we were so looking forward to the scallops lol. It seems silly but they really were THAT good!
We stayed in cabin 66, 2 bedroom 1 bath, which was away from the road, which was good for the noise factor and more private. We were really impressed with how nice the cabin was and it felt more like a mini house. It had a 2 person spa, bbq, outdoor setting and an outdoor shower. I realise the main purpose of the outdoor showers is to wash off sand but it would be nice for them to be more private as you are in open view of the other cabins or road when using them. I did find the beds a bit hard and woke up stiff but apart from those tiny things I loved it.
It seemed like the kind of place you could go as a couple, in a group of friends or as a family with kids. It's just a nice, relaxed area...good as a place to get away for a weekend. I'd definitely stay here again....especially if the scallops made a return ;)
