They are located close to the beach and shops. The area for meals is nice and they provide cold water for dinners. Our meals were very good, however if you love salad you miight be disappointed.

Good meal, I had double cooked Pork Belly and the boss(boys you know who I mean) had Rib Eye steak. We were both happy with meal presentation and taste and it arrived within a reasonable period of time. No complaints here

We dined here twice after checking out other options in Rainbow, both meals were outstanding and they make wonderful cocktails.

Came here with a large group; still had excellent service and food. Would recommend the steak specials or the chicken parmigiana. Heaps of beers, both draught and craft, to choose from. Very friendly staff.

Popped in for a drink just as it was about to rain. Great location in the 'high street' and close to the beach. Drinks were a reasonable price and the staff friendly. Top it all, free wifi for those that have to be connected to everywhere else.

We visited here for lunch during the Christmas/New Year break. Best food that we had eaten the entire holidays. I'm not a terribly big eater so I settled for the Salt & Pepper Squid entree which was tender and perfectly cooked. My husband loves his food and ordered the BBQ Ribs. Wow! it was huge. He gave it a glowing... More

Very accommodating to the last minute request of our group size. But food was very average for the price. Bar and drink staff were great.

This hotel is modern and everything is clean and welcoming. The food however is not as good I would have expected and is a little overpriced for what it is.

I was pleasantly surprised food was incredible, Stake was beautiful and cooked to perfection "DELICIOUS" Service was very good, reasonably priced for the high standard of food and location. Will definitely be back! My son... More
