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.

Super fresh seafood and great menu. Prices are a little steep but selection is good and I don't mind paying for freshness

The food was not good. Wait staff was very on point. Maybe good for families with young kids as they have a dump and run corner for nippers. Very overpriced for the quality of the food.

My daughter & I went to dinner here tonight. She ordered the children’s size blue grenadeer with chips ($15) & I ordered grilled fish ($29) with a side of salt & pepper squid. Food came out super quick & I know why. Side salad -...pre made in bowl limp lettuce . Grilled fish- when I asked what the fish of the day was I was told baramundj, flat head or salmon. None were fresh caught. I was told the flat head came on ice from Sydney. The flat head I was served absolutely smelt rancid fishy. I took 2 mouthfuls & spat it out. Chips were ok with weird steak seasoning on it. The side plate of salt & pepper calamari was covered in raw batter & no sign of salt or pepper. ( see pics) the pepper & salt were added from hand grinders at the serving end. The tartare was weird aoli & very bland. God, I really wanted to support small business & we had ordered from here in covid to support. But this was the worst food in memory & my daughter & I bought heat & eat spaghetti from Woolies & had that when we got home. Never going back!More

This place was really disappointing. It was exciting to find a place so coeliac-friendly and that had good reviews. For us the food was pretty poor and not cheap either. There’s not a lot of GF options though in the area.

Unbelievably delicious food. Gorgeous atmosphere. Great portions. Kind workers. The owner Ray is the nicest person. We had two amazing dinners at Stingrays Ocean Grill over the weekend. Great for families and people with dietaries. All fried/battered food is gluten free (coeliac safe). The battered...fish was so good. I wish I lived closer to Batemans Bay because I’d be a regular customer. Honestly the best!!More

We were pleasantly surprised to find this restaurant on a cold Monday night and even more pleased at the generous sized meals we received. The chicken schnitzel was crispy on the outside and still tender and juicy inside, my colleagues grilled barramundi was similarly large...and well cooked, both meals were served with salads and we chose chips and sweet potato chips that were great accompaniments. The staff looked after us well, with a warm welcome and chef stopping by to check we were enjoying our meals even offering us extra sides if it wasn’t enough (it was plenty!). Beyond the meal, when I accidentally left my gloves at the restaurant and called up the next day the owner was incredibly kind. We’d already left Bateman’s Bay so he posted it to me straight away. I am so grateful for their friendliness, care and trouble he went to to return these sentimental gloves. Would reccomend for good food and even customer service that was above and beyond. Thank you!More

I ate here for lunch with my friend. I ordered the Barramundi and my friend had the Calamari. My friends Calamari was very good, however my Barramundi didn't seem to taste right and had a slightly offish smell. I mentioned this to the girl who...was our waitress and she was very apologetic. She kindly offered a replacement which was a very generous serve of Blue Grenadier with a light crispy batter and was delicious. What could have been a disaster was averted by good customer service with a smile. Once things were put right, the food here is very good and worth a try.More

Absolutely terrible in every way. Two of us ordered grilled snapper and grilled garlic prawns with chips. Chips were completely blonde and undercooked. Snapper was as tough as overcooked chicken and the prawns were not grilled and we're the frozen vietnamese type ones. My friend...had squid which had somehow had every bit of flavour removed. Soft but utterly tasteless. We complained to the waitress showing her how tough the fish was and she says "what can I do for you to help". I told her we were in a hurry so we can't wait for another plate to be cooked, perhaps at least a discount. Next thing the manager and "chef" come out. I showed them both how my fork could bounce of this fish and the chef actually said "that's the way it has to be cooked, it can't be cooked less than that?! What?! There's nowhere between raw and rubber? I even cut it with fork and knife to show them how hard it was. They wanted to recook it all again. No thanks. We paid the bill and not $1 discount. How he can be a chef is beyond me. right by the water in a seaside town and it was inedible! $30 for a lunch special and wasn't worth $5More
