We haven't been to The Point for some time so with a beautiful sunny day we decided to head for the coast and visit for lunch. Fantastic, same great service and excellent food sitting on the wonderful verandah overlooking the marina, perfect. I still rate this as the number #1 choice at the bay.

The young staff at this restaurant really enhanced a fantastic dining experience. They set a standard and continued to excel all evening. They were helpful, polite, enthusiastic and a credit to the restaurant. The food was outstanding and the views of the sunset was just wonderful. I was very impressed and happy with all aspects of our dining experience.

I had a lovely birthday dinner at the point with 40 friends and family. Julie and her staff were so helpful, impeccable service and the food was fantastic. I can recommend this to anyone that would like to have a function with style.

Ordered a Coffee and hamburger for Lunch. The Coffee was great and the hamburger filled with lots of salad and meat on a large bun. At $12 the hamburger wasn't cheap but was certainly delicious and the location on the marina was fantastic.

We spent the most wonderful evening at The Point Restaurant. The food was delicious and the location is just beautiful! We sat out on the balcony and watched the sunset whilst sipping on a glass of wine. It was all just perfection!

Hands down was the best meal experience we've had all year (and we eat out a lot!). The salmon, swordfish, oysters and calamari were so fresh and so delicious. The staff were so warm and friendly and what an incredible location. The fact it's BYO was the icing on the cake! Couldn't recommend enough!

Thank Nieve M
