    Great Sunday lunch setting! The service is great and there is as a wonderful selection in the menu at great prices (for the area). The wine selection is also fab! We will visit again and will recommend to family and friends

    A great location, just a short walk from the ferry wharf with water views and a great spot to watch the seaplanes from. The food was excellent, we had the mussels the fish of the day and the steak. All had unique flavors and were well cooked. The only letdown was the service. Not bad but just a little less than expected. Everyone was pleasant but little things like reaching across us to clear and serve and not being asked if a wanted another drink. Would recommend giving them a visit.

    Interesting 'tho sparse menu at reasonable prices. Great venue, spoilt only by the noise. If we go again, it will be to an outside table. Wine prices were high.

    We had a great dinner and drinks Yes there was a birthday function so it was a little noisy The restaurant was busy out side. We have had lunch there. And it was great. I guess the kitchen was busy that evening so our chicken and fish was over cooked but we would return. Thank you Maggieb

    We would have liked a table with a view for two, however all the tables with views were only for 4 people. This was disappointing as I booked weeks in advanced and asked for a table with a view. I would have booked somewhere else if I knew this was the case!

    Empire Lounge

    Hi there, We're terribly sorry that you feel this way. Please request a specific table when booking and we will do our very best to accommodate. We hope to see you dining with us again soon.

    Food was great, portion size was great. Wine choice was limited would be good to see a good Chardonnay on the wine list. After our mains we weren’t offered coffee or dessert which was disappointing.

    Empire Lounge

    Hi Sharon, Thank you for your feedback. We'll take your comments on board and ensure staff are trained to offer coffee or dessert after each meal. We hope to host you again soon.
