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.

Couldn’t fault the service, everyone was very attentive and polite. There was a bit of a wait and they told us in advance. Food was nice but it wasn’t anything special💥

This is a great spot for dining; the food was excellent and the customer service was really good. There is also live music that is provided by the owner.

We wondered in here by chance having done no research and not knowing what to expect. After going, I can’t believe there are good reviews. Our first glance at the menu it seemed like some great options, albeit at quite high prices. We decided to...try the Beef Bourguignon, the Coconut Praws and some Olives on the side. The waitress was friendly and took our order in a timely fashion.. Well done there.. The service was about the only thing that stopped us just walking out. The prawns were $20.. There were 4 of them, and they were poor quality straight out of the freezer.. They had no firmness to them, it was just a soft mushy mess. Gross. The salad that came with it seemed as if it was straight out of a coles packet and no bigger than a small mandarin. The Beef was tasteless, dry, poorly presented. Not like what 12 hour cooked beef should be. We took about 80% of the meal home to the dogs, it was near inedible as well. No greens with it at all. That cost us $38. The olives are hard to screw up, but even those I believe were straight from a jar, chucked in the microwave to mask how crap they are.. Didn’t even finish them.. $10. Then the owner(?) or staff member it seemed got up and started singing… His voice was good but the performance just lacking and unfortunately after such disappointing food our patience had run out and it definitely didn’t improve our mood. What a shame!More

A clean restaurant with an odd school vibe. Service was quick (we were dining early so restaurant still slow). Pork ribs and beef cheeks were enjoyed by other family members but my sirloin steak for $41 was just not good and not worth it...

Before I start I want to commend the chef. Everything was cooked and presented well and it was clear they know what they were doing. Prices are pretty high so expectations were up. Service, except for one thing ( which is a management, not a...server issue) which I’ll expand on below This restaurant appears to be stuck in the 70s, and not in a good way. Needs a refresh in every way. I will never understand why, in an area with an abundance of fresh sea food, every restaurant must have barramundi flown in from Humpty Doo! I guess it’s their name, but this was the only fish. It was mushy and sloppy (frozen?) despite the best efforts of the chef. My companions were underwhelmed too and sent one dish back ( which was inedible) with the promise that something would be worked out. But when we got the bill, there it was, which meant my friend had to go and deal with the owners to have it taken off! They seem like nice folks and the entertainment , despite my fears, was quite good, but they need to focus on refreshing the tired menu and giving some value for money or their business will not thrive. Send in Gordon!More

Service started by been greeted at the door by Trevor he acknowledged our booking and escorted us to our table and took our drink orders , we found the restaurant to be modern clean with a great vibe that catered for our varied age group,...great menu selection with variety that didn't disappoint when was served to us, After dinner Trevor got on the stage and sung a few songs very talented singer and was a highlight of the night. Service was impeccable would definitely recommend for a nice night out with family and friends . Thanks from the Kiwi family...More

The $39 steaks were either dry or uncooked, the prawns were cold and the oysters were tiny. The cocktail tasted like watery milk with no alcohol. The owner came to the table to ask how everything was. My friend politely told him that there were...a few problems with the order. He said that he would write down our feedback, he took his pen and pad out, walked away and avoided our table till we ate all of our food. At the end when we once again tried to complain he told us that we should have said something earlier. When o said that we had be he avoided us he accused us of enjoying the meal because we ate it (forced it down as we had been hiking since the morning and were all extremely hungry) and refused to split the bill for us as a courtesy and compensation for the bad meal. I have actually never had a customer service experience worse than this. Do yourself a favor and book next door (toto bar I think it was), we went there and got some food and drinks that were unreal. Don't waste your money hereMore

We have been to been and barramundi in Ettalong before about 5 years ago. It was delicious and last night we decided to go again.......what a mistake. We ordered a pork belly entree ($17 each). It was sliced so thin like bacon slices and pan...fried (like bacon) which made it chewy and what is already a fatty cut of meat even worse! I saved the crackle for last and as I bit into it was oil and fishy undertone (possibly old oil) - it had been deep fried. My husband said it couldn't be that bad.........he took a bite and has to spit it out. I never complain even if I don't enjoy the food but I had to say something the waitress because it WAS THAT BAD! Shortly after she was pulled to over the side by the owner for a discrete chat....that wasn't discrete. As an owner i would have come over and talked to the patrons but he just ignored us. I was completely shocked at what I had just tasted and the way that it was handled and I really killed the mood of night...... The mains came out, I ordered the steak and hubby ordered the beef bourguignon, The steak sirloin at $36 was "ok". nothing amazing to rave about - it was supposed to be cooked medium but was medium well and didn't have alot of flavour. But it was at least edible. But the beef bourguignon was delicious, it had flavour and the mash was delicious as well. We didn't get dessert, as it was too unpredictable as to what we might receive. All up it was $120 for a bad taste left in our mouth. We won't ever be back .More

Went there Xmas eve with my husband and adult daughter..upon entering it felt like a bat cave...very dark and obviously stuck in the 70's...as the meals themselves turned out to be...my husband chose barramundi, I chose the beef bourgignon and daughter chose the harissa spiced...lamb. Husband said only good thing about the fish was the crispy skin...very bland, sitting on beans with bacon bits and decorated with white pickled cocktail onions, which I thought strange. My daughter said there was no hint of harissa which is usually quite a predominant space...just tasted like a lamb roast which sat in a sickly tomato sauce with whole chick peas and a weird mousse-like fetta/pesto combination...she ate less than half of hers, as I did mine which was dry, tasteless and boring, again with a good measure of bacon bits and those white cocktail pickled onions again. We asked for our plates to be removed and the waitress asked if everything was OK. Clearly it was not because of the amount of food that was left so we explained to her and obviously she gave feedback to her boss who duly attended our table. He was clearly upset by our comments, stating in "20 years of cooking this he had not had a single complaint"....he offered to get a replacement meal but I just wanted to get out of there...my feeling is he needs to have a good long look at the make-up of his menu because we would not return to this place if you paid us.More

This place is completely over priced for what it is. Shared a mixed entree that was supposed to be pork belly( 2 tiny bite size pieces of bacon), salt and pepper squid that was rubbery with no sign of salt or pepper and one tiny...stuffed mushroom! Our mains were Lamb Rump and Pork ribs. Ribs at least we're tender for $38. I'm pretty sure this place is stuck in the early 90', we definitely won't be back!!!.More
