    The service was amazing and the atmosphere of the restaurant is nice. The food though was not as expected.. The entrées were nice (scallops and crubs) but we did not enjoy the mains. The ingredients and the flavors were not getting along unfortunately.

    We like to support our local restaurants but Scampi's has become very lazy and complacent. The menu has not changed AT ALL in the 10 months we've been going there. There are never any specials and the 'salad' is just cos lettuce and something you get with a hamburger. There was not a skerrick of salad or garnish on anyone's plate and no option to purchase 'extras'. Why not have a rocket, watercress and microherb salad as an optional extra? Must do better....

    Really enjoyed the Lemon Sole followed by the Lime Parfait. Great meals, great value. Surprisingly busy on a Sunday night so must be popular. Will be back.

    This restaurant had a really lovely atmosphere. Across from the beach but unfortunately, no view. Waiter was really efficient & friendly. They were not busy, only 3 tables, but it was a Tuesday I suppose. The food was lovely. Very fresh & well cooked & presented. Have only 1 complaint, which I know is out of the control of the restaurant & staff, the flys were terrible. As it’s an open restaurant, it would be very hard to control this, but it did make it very uncomfortable to enjoy our meal. In saying that, as I said above, it was a lovely restaurant, staff & meal.

    This was our second visit first time for lunch, which made us want to try dinner. The seafood platter was beautifully presented and great to eat. We both loved it

    I would recommend this restaurant for fine dining. Good food and sensible portions without the need for "sides". The staff were excellent and the restaurant has a nice ambience.

    We were slightly concerned after reading some recent reviews but were pleasantly surprised at how lovely the food was and how attentive the staff were. Great little place - scallops and monkfish were amazing and market fish (barramundi) was divine

    This is a well presented restaurant right opposite the beach with very professional and attentive staff. Entrees of scallops and seafood chowder exceptional, both taste and presentation first class and highly recommended. Unfortunately the mains of the monkfish and the eye fillet were nice, but not of the same standard. The steak was very plain in taste, overcooked and not a high quality cut, and the monkfish was a combination of flavours that did not tie together well as the side salad was very string in taste. Overall, good but not fantastic.

    Erratic. It was hard to believe that the chef who created the scallops dish and the sweets dish was the same creator of the squid mains. The salad served with the squid was nothing more than a mushy slop. This restaurant is over-priced.

    Great chowder and wonderful seafood . Only disappointment was that very ordinary potato chips were served with Marks expensive steak. It didn’t seem to fit the pricing or style of the restaurant.
