The Belmont 16ft Sailing Club is a family favourite. In fact we visit here every week in sailing season for either breakfast lunch or dinner. It's a versatile place for eating as there's a choice of cafe, bistro or a la carte. The cafe has great coffee with gorgeous cakes and slices or cafe style food (wraps quiches and toasted... More

Great venue and a great view, shame about the food. Visit the club as guests of a couple of friends for lunch. I ordered a blue rib eye fillet with vegetables the others ordered a medium rare T-bone, a parmigana and a Caesar salad. Mine arrived well done and the vegetables where cold, the T-bone was well done and chips... More

We were a group of friends meeting for lunch, we wanted to catch up and have a few drinks before ordering food. By the time we were ready to order at the salt restaurant, it was closed (a few minutes before the stated closing time). The basic cafe was still open but none of the food was appealing to us....

We often eat at the Belmont 16s before listening to the entertainment the food is always flavorsome. Baked dinners are excellent and great for the value. I like the fact that you are able to get size proportions. The coffee shop has great coffee & cakes & you can also get light meals. There's a pizza shop they bake there... More

After riding our bikes along the foreshore with the family we decided to have beer and chips here. We were surprised that they allowed us in with thongs and casual dress. We ended up getting the chips from the bay-Marie! They were ok but nothing fancy. Appreciated the extra tub of aoli though. No table service. Views were lovely and... More

Loved the Atmosphere of this club. On the water with great view, breeze and sun. Food was below average. Kids wouldn't eat the fish and chips. Calamari over cooked. Salad average.
