This restaurant is located one street back from the esplanade. A bar area along with inside and outside dining. The menu was set for New Years Eve with a choice of entrees, mains and desserts. Pork ribs were an entree selection and were delicious. The steak was served with green beans, potato croquettes accompanied with jus sauce and decorative sweet... More

Had take out pizza from here, it was fresh and flavorsome. Interesting topping combinations but it worked really well.

Overall a problematic experience. 1. The place got smoked out from their cooking. 2. The air conditioner was not set right on a hot and humid day. 3. My sister ordered a pumpkin salad without tomato and 45 minutes after she placed the order the waitress informed her they had run out of pumpkin. She changed her order to a... More

We have been here twice now. Last night was a disappointment compared with the last time. We waited 15 mins for a table and there were plenty available????? The staff were helpful and great but for NYE not enough of them. My entree of spanner crab was one of the best crab dishes I've ever had however the Barramundi paled... More

A relaxing restaurant a couple of blocks from the beach and surf club, close to most tourist accommodation, it's a great spot for casual dining for a tourist. A good range of pizzas and pastas although I prefer a pizza to take home to enjoy - several good options to choose from.

We arrived at 6pm on a Friday night with no booking, but were able to get a table in a side section straight away. Unfortunately the waitress forgot us and we had to go remind them we were ready to order after about 15 minutes. It got better and better from there! The food was amazing! We were offered a... More

This restaurant was a nice casual place to eat, probably too casual for my liking. The staff were friendly and polite. We were seated straight away and at the start quite. As the night went on it was extremely loud with everyone talking at each table. So I think the seating arrangement could have been improved. The food was enjoyable... More

We really enjoyed eating here. The casual, but busy ambience, and the great food. We couldn't get a table straight up, but enjoying a drink at the bar was an entertaining short wait. The barman was a master at serving the cocktail crowd, and the wait staff kept us informed about table readiness. We ordered the Paella, and Spaghetti Marinara,... More
