On a good day the sunset view is breathtaking. I recommend booking one of the few tables for 2 by the window as we did.
The menu is very interesting. My wife had the vegetarian Baked Eggplant Cannelloni which looked fabulous on paper but the eggplant was slightly undercooked and the excellent miso sauce was sadly too thinly spread (one of the main rule of cooking: more sauce). I had the Atlantic Salmon which was very good but also a little bit dry. To finish we shared the Meringue Nest which as per our mains was great but could have been amazing if the base of the meringue wasn't so chewy. So in conclusion great food, interesting menu, improve the execution and it will be fully amazing. Oh and my "special" Mojito cocktail was very nice.
And despite the comments it is well worth a visit. One of the photo is from or table, the other from the balcony just in front of our table.

A faultless meal! Starting with the warm ciabatta, oysters, the Cajun prawns were divine and the beef cheeks were the best...I didn't want the meal to end! Would recommend this restaurant to anyone. The service was also fabulous & friendly. Nothing was too much trouble! A must try when in Port Stephens. You won't be disappointed!

Enjoyed a lovely dinner with my wife at this pleasant local restaurant. The appetiser of bruschetta was slightly disappointing with a very light coating of pesto and tomatoes of very little taste. The main of salmon and risotto cake was above average in flavour and the blue eyed cod with tomato and cous cous was excellent. The decor was simple with a nautical theme.
