Celebrated my Aunts 90th birthday here with 48 family members with a High Tea, the food was first rate, the staff couldn't do enough for us even taking group photos, ages ranged from 10 months to 93 yrs of age and each and everyone was catered for would definitely return.

We booked a table here for an evening meal while staying in Gerringong. Service was a bit slow as only 2 members of staff were on duty and it was quite busy. Food was beautiful and fresh and would recommend if you are in the area though a little pricey

This restaurant is in the Mercure resort in Gerringong. We ate here 3 nights in a row as we were staying in the resort. Cannot fault it ! Excellent food, wonderful service. Staff were a delight to meet and also very helpful. Can recommend the Sunset menu as fantastic value for money.

Thank Dagny B
