We ate 3 meals at the Clipper as it was part of our hotel. Had dinner the first night. Ended up with smaller plates as we had gotten in late and didn't want to be too full. The presentation was fantastic, the food was fantastic and the view incredible! The next morning we ate breakfast there and while very good... More

I would perhaps should have rated the food more highly but for one issue. We were residents in the hotel and when we arrived for dinner we were greeted with the usual "do you have a reservation?" We didn't but the restaurant was pretty empty. We requested a table by the window- as there were several empty and were told... More

My husband and I had a wonderful meal in this restaurant last night. We couldn't seem to find any nice restaurants in the main Airlie Beach centre that appealed to our tastes, however on walking back to our hotel (Marina Shores) in Abell Point Marina, we saw this restaurant advertised in the Coral Sea Resort and after checking that they...

8 friends went for a lunch. Location is wonderful and view beautiful. Staff were friendly and good but food lets this restaurant down badly. Out of the eight of us only 3 finished their meals. The pulled pork open sandwich which 2 of us was inedible and sent back. Calamari was tough and beefburgers were not nice at all really.... More

We came here for dinner as we were staying in the hotel and our taxi driver told us how good it was. We were not disappointed it was excellent. My oysters were really good as were the baked mussels. All the food was superb quality and beautifully cooked but with a difference. Portions were quite large but not over-facing and... More

The location of this dining experience is incredibly beautiful. We had a 180 degrees view of the ocean with moonlight glowing and giving light to a silhouette of palm trees gently blowing in the breeze. There is also an inviting pool at the edge of the dining area. It was a Wednesday and there were only a scattering of other... More

Looked forward to eating here given the reviews but walked away disappointed. We had a starter to share but plates were still out when our mains came, drinks forgotten so we had to chase so not a good impression. Food not bad but overpriced we felt for what you got.

A late decision to stroll from Abell point marina to CSR for dinner as Sorrentos had a group booking, and we weren't disappointed. Maitre'd welcomed us well without a reservation we were well looked after and offered a choice of tables. Meals were very well presented, photograph material, but we resisted the urge! We learnt after the first course this... More
