Really enjoyed our evening at Compass! The Patio was amazing, with a spectacular view of the harbour. Drinks were reasonable and food was good as well. Fresh Salads, good selection of appies! Although busy, the service was great! Highly recommended. Will Definitely Return!!

Location at Bronte Harbour is the perfect setting for a evening meal on the patio overlooking the boats. Sadly the food came very slowly. The wait staff all seemed like rather young and were "afraid" of the kitchen staff. They were reluctant to chase the...More

I was really looking forward to dining at this restaurant despite a number of sub-par reviews. Sadly, I did not get the dining experience I was hoping for. The calamari appetizer was good, yet the waiter could not wait to take my plate away. When...More
