On June 12th, 13 family members enjoyed what was a wonderful meal and excellent service from all staff, starting at the bar, through to the waitress who looked after our table thus ensuring this 80th birthday would be enjoyable, and memorable. Our sincere thanks to...all for tolerating our rather noisy group,and we would really recommend staying at the Lighthouse Hotel and eating at this very friendly spot. Thankyou everybody.More

The dinner we enjoyed was GREAT in more ways than one. The entree, popcorn chicken with sauce and nuts was literally `finger-licking'......... The main meal was also of GREAT quality, and so was its presentation. The staff, in particular Glenn and Swiss Katherina did a...sterling job in ensuring that all our needs were met. Glenn even `ventured' into the rain to obtain something which he thought was not available on site......top marks for this guy! All in all, a dinner worthy to be repeated!More

We visited for dinner with friends on a Friday night, and the restaurant was particularly quiet (apparently due to some event being on in town that evening). All our main courses and desserts were very well presented, and delicious. The service was great, with our...table being served primarily by Glen and Katherina. We particularly enjoyed Glen's sense of humour, and he engaged very well with the interesting sense of humour from one of the members of our group, giving what he got ;)More

I've had positive experiences here previously, so I came with high expectations. They were easily met. Our table of four enjoyed an evening dinner, and was pleased that the place wasn't overly crowded. The atmosphere is pleasant, without the music being too loud or offensive,...or tables too close together. Staff were friendly, and particular positive mention needs to be made of Glen, who did an outstanding job of taking care of us, and went out of his way to make sure we were looked after, and also gave us some humorous moments to enjoy. Our main course choices included the pork belly, steak, and lamb rump. We were all in agreement that these were outstanding. The presentation was good, and the food was absolutely delicious. We opted for desserts and coffee as well, and even though the dessert menu is quite pricey, the presentation and taste is of a very high standard. It's not exactly a cheap dinner price wise, but you definitely get what you pay for. We definitely want to return here soon, and would highly recommend it to other customers.More

The view is probably the best thing , steak excellent but service and salad not good. Had a great wine from Perth should be more wines from Ferguson valley or Cape. Would have had desert but service too slow .More

This is quite a large restaurant situated in a hotel complex. Nice views over the ocean where you can see part of the sunset to the left of the building. Service is attentive and friendly. My lamb rump was tasty even though it was a...tad over how I like it normally. My wife's steak sandwich was also a tad over how she likes it but that was probably because the steak was on the thin side. The accompanying chips were nice. Worth a visit.More

20 males arrived for the monthly luncheon. Enjoyed the pre luncheon refreshments. I selected old favorites, Crispy Japanese Pork Belly Kakuni for starters and then the Charred Sirloin of Beef. Both very tasty and ample plated. The Amelia Park Shiraz a most enjoyable accompaniment. A...variety of starters and mains for the remainder of the group, only words of satisfaction for meals and drinks. Great service from Glenn and Amy throughout. Lovely venue with views over the City and ocean.More

It was a bit of a confusion finding our way into the restaurant but when we did it was beautiful, with a spectacular view in dusk. Food, drinks and service were all superb.

Food superb, great views, very good service and the pace was spot on. We started the new year with dinner with our good friends here and it was a great start to 2021. Nice shared tapas plate and spicy popcorn chicken entree, I had the...gnocchi, the others had the pork belly and tiger prawn dishes, not a miss between us. The desserts just as good.
