    Great views, really nice to relax and really good food. Felt like we were being pushed to decide on dessert and it was Thursday late lunch at 3pm. Plenty of free tables for others

    We love taking the ferry from Watsons Bay and lunching at Hugo's. The food is always great. The oysters and fish were so fresh and delicious. Great service. Cant wait to go back

    You can’t beat Hugo’s for a guaranteed enjoyable evening. Delicious pizza and views over the water to the sunset are magnificent. Great for families.

    One of my go-to dining spots. Food is always amazing and service is impeccable. Atmosphere is cosy and relaxing, with beautiful vistas out across the water. The restaurant was very accommodating for our pram, with dedicated tables that provided plenty of room to park prams alongside the tables.

    Had great service for Entree and main and got completely ignored when it came to wanting dessert menus and actually ordering dessert, so we gave up.

    The restaurant had a nice view and great food! The only down side was the waiting time. But overall the staff was really friendly and I would go there again.
