Very nice bar food with excellent beer and wine. Location is outstanding. The food order was misplaced and service was late, but management immediately comp'd the food. No drama, no fuss. On arrival, the food was really good.

Very lovely location. Food is average and service is not so good. You get the feeling they just don't care because they will have more people through the door even if you don't like it. In this case location is everything.

Wow what a long way this place has come from its humble home with pool tables and juke box. Now it's all fancy and up market but really just another bar with a great view. The $13 pint of midstrength matsos almost made me choke! $13 for midstrenghth on tap. Wow. Then we ordered a 'share plate' the guy we... More

My husband & me plus my brother & his wife love just sitting on the deck with a nice bottle of chilled wine watching the activities of other people enjoying themselves. The "pub grub" was also of a high standard & was received by us with a smiling waiter. He couldn't do enough for us especially as we had changed... More

Great location on the water and is exposed to the wind so wrap up if it is a windy day Staff fairly attentive, you have to order from the bar and get your number. We all had the barramundi, peas and chips. Food was mediocre with small portion of fish, chips uncooked and not crispy and a smear of peas... More

We dropped in for a couple of drinks before dinner. Wine list is fairly limited and very expensive - $12-13 for a decent glass of wine so two drinks each cost over $50. Amazing location and lots of appeal for special occasions. Didn't try any food but would guess it's also quite expensive. Sunset was superb and fireplace on a... More

How can you call this a pizza on a flat bread. There is no love in this, absolute rip off $24 ??? So so disappointed.

$89 for Moët and tapas, bought the deal in 2015 and it was fantastic, however recently used my 2016 voucher and was very disappointed. The tapas wasn't a patch on last years deal, which was excellent. The food was of poor quality and contained a lot of fish, seafood which was tasteless. The pate was nice but the chicken thighs...
