This place serves the most incredible scallops with chips and salad. Reasonably priced and cooked to perfection.

I have always had good food at the Deck. We drive pass the Parua Bay Tavern to have a meal here. The view is fantastic.

Good variety of food on menu as well as fast snacks. Well presented, lovely dishes served by friendly staff. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal looking out over the bay. Also pet friendly, our dog was given water on arrival and encouraged to sit beside us!
