Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We visit on Thursday evening 22/02/2024 My partner, my son and me enjoyed our dinner. It’s great that you don’t have to make a choice by yourself what to eat ! The Odyssey will make that choice from you ! It’s a nice concept that...I have experienced before in the Netherlands and I love it ! Dinner is a adventure in this way ! Hopefully more people like to try this when they visiting or living in Hervey Bay (Scarness) Cheers MargaretMore

We have never been to a restaurant where you're served food which you haven't picked yourself. All of the meals were tasty and cooked to perfection. It is such great value for money, the same experience back in England would be double to price. The...staff were friendly, we had a blonde waitress who seemed to get very nervous when explaining what each meal was, maybe she was new. She was still very pleasant and explained all that we needed.More

We saw this restaurant and thought it sounded interesting. Although, to be honest I was a little apprehensive, I like to have an idea of what is on the menu. Well, there was absolutely no need - it was just fantastic, from start to finish!...Each course was a culinary delight. There wasn’t one we didn’t enjoy. The atmosphere and staff were also great and it was definitely good value for money. The menu changes once a week but we are only here for a few more days. So tempted to go back even though the menu would be the same.More

Not for us. Expected seafood being beachside. Got a menu in an envelope(?). Bit of a fire in the kitchen, choking smoke throughout restaurant.

The service and food is always outstanding at Odyssey. The menu changes weekly so it’s exciting to open the Set menu to see what will tantalise our taste buds for the evening.

This is not a restaurant it’s an experience. You have to try the set menu which changes weekly and is full of local produce. The staff are also amazing and it tastes great.

This is our favourite restaurant. It is such a unique experience. No need to decide what you are going to eat - the chef puts together a 5 course menu with each course complimenting the previous one. It all works great. Add to that matching...wines and the result is a perfect meal. We have been here a few times, but this time for the first time with friend. It was great to share a meal with them. I think we convinced them to be back.More

When we think about celebrations, Odyssey is always our first thought and choice, and it doesn't disappoint. From the starter to the dessert, the quality and flavours of everything presented were outstanding. Using only locally sourced ingredients and with a menu that changes each week...depending on the same, our food might have been some of the best meals we have ever been served. This is a huge compliment as we are well travelled.Service was delightful and very professional. 10/10More
