Reviewed 9 February 2018 via mobile

We visit this restaurant at least 4 times a year as it is beautifully relaxed with the views out to the luxury boats moored at the marina. The food is sensational with local seafood the obvious choice. Everything is quick and reasonably priced. The bar offers a large selection of wines, beers and cocktails. A must for visitors to the area.

Lovely seafood platter- $95 and packed full of delicious fresh seafood- oysters, prawns, Balmain bugs, mud crab, grilled salmon (amazing), fried fish, and salt and pepper squid. Fresh fruit and chips also.
Quick service, casual dining, and a fab location right on the bay.

Mavericks is a great place to people watch, if you can get a seat or a table during peak periods. Located on the marina, Mavericks serves good food and drinks, however bar prices for Cocktails are ridiculous, given the serving size. All in all, a nice place in a great location.

The food was all very nice and came out in a reasonable time. Decent range of beer and it was nice and cold. The whole front is open so you get the lovely sea breeze and view of the marina. The staff were friendly and the was never much of a queue even though they were fairly busy.

My partner and I went to Mavericks just after getting engaged to indulge in champagne and seafood. And boy were we not disappointed! The platted was HUGE and absolutely to die for! We went back there again for drinks later. Beautiful spot and great food!
