“Great food”
Reviewed 18 March 2012

we walked up and down for a while and spotted the lunch specials board. we were seated in the front deck of the restaurant and ordered the special of the day - which was fresh caught snapper. the meal arrived quickly and was one of the best meals of snapper we had eaten for a long time. Also fresh cut hot chips. We told the wait staff to compliment the chef for such a great meal. would go there again for sure.

If you like stone grilling your steak then this is the place to go. Very busy and good value for the money $84 for 2 people including a bottle of NZ wine.

“Friendly helpful staff made the night”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

Blonde was the 4th restaurant we went to that night the others booked out. Blonde was also booked out but they shuffled tables to fit us in. We observed this again sever times as couples arrived they did everything they could to fit them in.

We had a hot rock meal not exactly nouvelle cuisine but nice enough at a good price.

After our meal we were able to take the rest of our wine to the outside area (with a great view) and finish it, this was our choice we weren't pushed.

The highlight was the helpful pleasent and efficient staff.

“A NASTY EXPERIENCE, restaurant spoilt by one personn”
Reviewed 28 November 2011

We had a very good meal, and the atmosphere was nice and the waitress who served us was very pleasant. We were aware however of a waitress?owner not sure who - banging around and then making it obvious she was clearing up whilst we and various other diners were still eating. She then came and banged a window shut which the waitress had kindly opened for us, and I pointed out we would like left open.. It was 9.25pm and i asked what time they closed. She said from 9.00pm depending on how many diners were there. She spoilt a very pleasant meal and made us feel extremely uncomfortable. If they closed at 9.00 they should have had a notice to say so and not welcomed us at 8.30. We would never go there again.
