This is a great place for a cool drink on a hot day. Ambiance is good. Light is good. Great views over harbour and other attractions close by.

Whilst staying at Hillarys we had pre dinner drinks here most evenings during our one month stay. Weekends the place is buzzing and great for people watching. Drink prices and bar snack prices are quite high but the location, cool music and atmosphere kept on drawing us back again and again.

Sat outside with the sun shining and was very pleasant. My friend comes to Australia often and has to have a drink here when he's here. The only drawback are the seagulls swooping for food

Called in for a few drinks after dinner elsewhere. Nice spot with a good vibe and great music for a Saturday night. Have always found the Breakwater to be way over priced but ok for a few drinks on a warm night.

Food arrived not long following questions yet... More
