Regular customer here but totally flummoxed by the inconsistent service. Tonight was a joke - 25 mins between being seated and even asked for a pre-dinner drink. Had to remind waitperson that we were still interested in a drink 10 minutes later when the one bottle of wine hadn't arrived. Food as ever - very good - but request for... More

We were hoping to have a late lunch here today 15/04/17. The waitress was slow to take order and very abrupt. There were not busy and just chatting to each other. At this price level I was expecting better service but not someone talking to me like she was doing us a personal favour. I believe that people who work... More

Stayed here for 2 nights highly recommend the relaxed venue, lovely bed line, shared bathrooms were excellant and opposite out room. A small family friendly guest house 4/5 star quality. The fresh fruit at breakfast and the constant availability of the coffee in all qualities and tea in all types was a nice touch. The little pots of honey and... More

It's really unfortunate when a great venue that used to have awesome service and food let's you down. While it's not bad it could be so much better. In times gone by we h've had such great experiences at this venue. Service average, food over priced and with so much choice around why bother with this one. Hard to find... More

You have to go once- Palm Beach landmark restaurant overlook jetty on Pittwater and still water beaches. Great for kids- pick up a ferry and go to the the Basin for day- Not much better!

This is a wonderful restaurant with a wide variety on the menu and a relaxed atmosphere. The food is very good, as are the portion sizes. The service we received from our waiter really made our lunch special, and we would definitely return!

I have dined here fairly regularly over the past few years and it's always an enjoyable experience. Took my partner here recently for his birthday and it was lovely as usual. Great ambience, lovely beachy decor , good staff. Nice on a sunny day for lunch too.

Had dinner here on a Saturday night in March 2017. Absolutely loved the decor, made me want to take it all and find a gorgeous beach house to put it all in. Food was delicious and very reasonably priced. We did the 3 course option for $65 and it had no strings attached, order anything off their menu which has... More

We go to this restaurant about every six weeks, unfortunately the menu is very limited and rarely changed. That present no problem for occasional visitors but for locals not so.

We really enjoyed our dinner dining experience- mains were succulent and generous. Staff checked in on us regularly but unobtrusively 👏🏻 Young energetic & fun loving staff- the team dynamic was great. One suggestion : can you dispose of bottles outside -as the constant crashing of empty bottles behind the bar into bin tends to distract from the beaut atmosphere....inside.... More
