I just wanted to say I was disappointed on our 2nd visit to Jonah's. Of course the view is stunning and we were very happy outside with the lovely seafood platter. However, the Prosecco we were served prior to our meal was flat and obviously old. Very surprised the staff member would not notice this as it was something I noticed straight away. When we wanted a bottle of wine we were not given any price list and hence got a shock when the bill arrived. Hope this helps for future clients.

Perhaps the only feature that can divert your attention from the stunning view at Jonah’s is the food. The multi award-winning Hatted Restaurant offers excellent Contemporary Australian cuisine and an exceptional wine list offering more than 1600 wines from around the globe.
