We ordered almost the same dishes as our previous visits - kingfish and Murray cod are still good. Blackmore beef was excellent in previous visits but only good this time. Chocolate was average before and very average this time. We also tried something different. The quail is too salty. The mango cake was very disappointing. Overall food wasn’t as good as before. Service - we’re sharing our dishes and no service cutlery was provided. There’re couple of times we struggled to get attention - water, dessert menu... Disappointing.

The taste and quality of the food were well above average, the service was good until the dining room became busier and there didn't seem to be enough staff on to cope with the extra people, and the views are nice, although somewhat spoiled by the dilapidated wharves directly in front. I think that the restaurant would be better located at the other end of the hotel where it could get an undisturbed view of the harbour. Overall I had a nice experience other than the unruly and noisy child sitting at the table next to me, who just would not shut up!

The views are breathtaking at sunset, and the service was wonderful! I highly recommend the spanner crab and the cod
