The first night I dined here, I had the Deloraine lamb rump. I suspect this had been pre-cooked as it arrived very quickly, was well-done and tough. The parsnips that accompanied it were inedible and woody. However, the affogato for dessert was lovely. The next night I ordered the seafood linguine - the chef must have stood a long way... More

I visited last night for dinner by myself. I was very early but was greated by the beautiful hostess and welcomed in. The food was great. I had the seafood chowder and cape grim steak, accompanied by a local wine. Unfortunately, I went on a night with heavy mist which obstructed, what would have been, a great veiw. This did... More

After being seated we requested a pre dinner drink, were then queried as to our reservation time and informed that service must be be undertaken during our allocated time as patrons needed to be moved through the restaurant. We then again asked for a pre dinner drink. We were left with the feeling that it was hurry up and get... More

For such a small township, this restaurant (within the resort) offers a great dining experience. It is pleasantly situated looking out over Coles Bay and the Hazards. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the meals we had (4 adults for dinner) were excellent. An extremely pleasant experience

We really enjoyed our dinner at The Edge last night, yes the view is overwhelmingly stunning but the food and service are great as well. We had the lamb and marinara linguine that were lovely quickly followed up with gelato and a cheesecake for desert . All well presented and very tasty.

This restaurant has fabulous setting, looking out over Coles Bay as the sun sets, but the food was just OK. Calamari for starters was in a thick quinoa batter and not especially tender, then fish of the day was drowning in a pea soup. Others at our table had tacos as starter and enjoyed them but overall the view is... More

Had dinner here with my boyfriend on Saturday night and I can definitely say we'll be back! We made a reservation for 5:30 and as we were the first people there, the waitress allowed us to pick any table we liked! This was very convenient as we could pick the table with the best view (although all the tables have... More

Views are great and the decor and layout are fine. Service was good. The food? Not so much... We quickly learned that Coles Bay is not a gastronomic destination and is inconsistent at best. We dined at the Edge two nights running - the first was seafood linguine and chicken filo and the second we both chose the eye fillet.... More
