I’d booked this restaurant especially for my wife’s birthday, which I noted in the booking. When I arrived I was extremely disappointed to find that a function had been booked for the restaurant and we were instead put into a makeshift restaurant in a conference room. No views, no atmosphere etc. if i’d been told there was a function I would’ve happily changed our booking to another night. Also when I ordered a beer it took 10mins to come back and tell me they no longer served that beer, which also occurred with the bottle of wine. Please update your drinks menu. The food was fine and service was ok too but the overall experience was less than we’d expected.

Reception didn’t pass on booking to restaurant. Got the impression this happened a lot. Lucky we got a table.

Waited 40min for a table we had booked! Waited 1.5hrs for meal then it was cold in the middle of a seafood pasta, that they were charging $40 for. Terrible! Waiter was the only positive he was helpful.

Our booking wasn’t showing in their records but they seated us anyway. Restaurant was very busy. Took about 20 mins to get our drink and had to follow up with staff a couple of times for that to happen. Only drink we had as couldn’t get attention of staff to order another. Food was nice.

Amazing cocktails

Overall, our waiter was lovely, the food was good, the wine list was ordinary but unfortunately the front of house management leaves a lot to be desired.

The dinner experience is a little different to the breakfast. I’m reviewing the dinner. The restaurant staff were all very lovely. We ordered the seafood tower. The fresh bug was perfect. My personal favourite. There were 6 good sized prawns, some smoked salmon, oysters and mussels. The hot flood section was good too with a few pieces of battered flathead, some crispy prawn pastry parcels and super crunchy spicy salt and pepper squid which I liked a lot. Chips, salad, and some dark rye bread with very very garlic infused butter. 3 of us ate the platter, and there was still a little leftover. Atmosphere was nice enough. Decor is good. Aircon a little cold, but stark I terror makes it a little noisy, especially with many families and kids.
