Called in here for lunch. Took up the lunch special - crumbed barra - it was nice. This place is in a good position, has a nice outlook, comfy furniture and well organised crew. It was priced about right for the area. I would happily go back.

We had lunch here, sitting at a table overlooking the ocean. I had the pumpkin and feta cheese salad. Lovely mixture of tastes and excellent dressing. Staff very friendly and helpful. An all round enjoyable experience.

All dishes were very tasty! My husband had the scotch fillet for main, and I had a roast pumpkin salad with salt and pepper calamari. Could... More

We were not disappointed the food was lovely the King George Whitting was... More

Had the seafood platter for two which was great. Fantastic location on the water watching the boats. It was great without being fantastic. Forgotten drinks order during peak time traffic a shame but otherwise not bad. I enjoyed it

The food and service was excellent. We celebrated Australia Day here for lunch. The lamb, salads and seafood (scollaps) were exceptional.

Off to a good start, we were greeted enthusiastically and shown to our table, given menus and wine list, but not offered a drink. A wait then until we were approached for our food order and had to ask for drinks. Ordered drinks and food together; drinks arrived and the food literally immediately after. Despite trying to catch the waitresses'... More
