Having had two previous uninspiring visits to Hemingway’s we decided to it try again. As locals running a tourist business we feel it’s important to try all restaurants in Airlie Beach. The service tonight was excellent and every dish was magnificent. We highly recommended this...More

We dropped by between service to take in the beauty of the Marina, we were not disappointed - as we sat with a glass of vino in the comfort of 'The Garden Bar' and enjoyed the live music. What a great atmosphere!

Excellent food, really great and efficient staff as well. The view on sunset was pretty stunning. The Hemingway quotes throughout the restaurant in menus and staff uniforms was a great idea. Really worth a visit!

Description
Hemingway’s is a contemporary venue located on the waterfront at the award winning Abell Point Marina. Opening in May 2017 and winning a Chef Hat for 2018 only 7 months later, Hemingway’s is a vibrant addition to the Whitsunday food scene. Serving modern Australian cuisine with a range of boutique wines, specialist beers and signature cocktails, Hemingway’s is the perfect place for a relaxed dining experience. The Garden Bar at Hemingway's offers the perfect place for afternoon drinks, sunset cocktails or a light bar snack and an ice cold beer. The lush greenery of The Garden Bar setting offers a stunning contrast to the turquoise water and bright white of the yachts in the marina. Come for a drink, come for dinner, come for both!
