This was our second time going here and both times we ordered the seafood platter for two and it's been amazing both times. We can't get over the great quality and quantity of the food for such a reasonable price. The staff are super friendly...More

Just a little bit of paradise, nestled in another part of paradise. Meal quality was right up there and the serving size was spectacular.

Staff were rude and unhelpful. It doesn’t matter how good your food is if you can’t treat people with courtesy and respect. Very disappointing. Won’t be back.

Enjoyed a quiet lunch mid-week with a table overlooking the bay. Try the calamari (its a challenge) as its a meal and a half.

Great view, food came out quite fast, meals were large and presented well, the venue wasn’t fancy but was neat and tidy, the only real negative was the barramundi which looked good but was really wet and soggy.
