Fusion never disappoints. Had a wonderful meal with friends, the food was amazing, everyone said how good it was and couldn't fault the service or atmosphere. This is fine dining but at realistic prices.

We often go here for lunch or an evening meal. We always get excellent service. Always in time for our one hour lunch break. My friend has a tomato intolerance and they are always onto it. The meals are a nice size and always interesting, tasty and good quality. Great place with a great view over the bay.

All three meals we ordered were "less than average" the corn fritter was chewy and bland, the chick pea meal was probably the best of the bunch in terms of flavour (and that was mediocre) but the tortilla was burnt and hard. The absolute worst meal was "The Pan" - supposedly chorizo, breakfast sausage and potato... More

We're about to walk past and so pleased we didn't! Having travel around for a month we were stopping over for 1 night and wanting an early dinner. Well we found the best meal we had had on our travels. Thank you for the energy put into making this a fantastic experience of food and atmosphere.

Had lunch here with friends and was very impressed with service, ambience and food quality. Nice location on the Bay Hill. Our group of four had different meals and all comments were positive.

Beautiful beautiful food! We shared the fire cracker prawns to start. Lamb and vegetarian for main Brulee and gingerbread for desert It was all phenomenal! The flavours are just amazing and the way the food is presented is a work of art! We thoroughly enjoyed every part of our meal. Huge compliments to the team in the kitchen
