Friendly and attentive service. Moody atmosphere with views of the bay. Great food especially if you love seafood with a range of wines and cocktails. All served with a smile.

Food was excellent and the setting superb! The views at night out over the marina and towards the city were great.

I've been here in a group of five for dinner. The restaurant is on the sea side. The interior is nice and cosy: it looks like a restaurant on a remote seaside village. It has fantastic views. It was not warm enough to sit outside, but through the glass walls one can enjoy the view from inside. The food was... More

Celebrating a milestone birthday, what a lovely location with a magnificent night city scape. The staff are fantastic, and food (mainly seafood) was excellent. Only negative I could speak of was that the seafood spaghetti was notably on the salty side. It is expensive and not BYO so don't expect too much change out of $200 for a couple of... More

We came out here for dinner to celebrate a birthday. The food and accompanying drinks were fresh and complimented each other well. The seafood in particular was fresh and smelt like it had come straight from the sea, sign of good quality. Draught beer was suited to the outdoor setting and views across the bay brilliant.

It's not often I praise a restaurant very highly, but this restaurant was AMAZING. The staff were friendly and around just often enough. The menu very nice, drinks reasonable. The specials were well thought out, and the staff were knowledgeable about these - which was highly appreciated. The food is of fantastic quality, and worth the price you pay. If... More

Went for dinner Saturday 1st April. 3 ladies only. From the minute we sat down, the staff kept coming over to us pressuring us to order drinks, order food, make decisions. In fact they came over on 3 occasions and interrupted our conversation without excusing themselves or acknowledging that we are talking. Finally we ordered drinks and our main meals.... More

Calling one of my staff 'a creep'. Really? And he was apparently the rude one? It's a shame some people use forums like this to write 'half truths' and exaggerations. Camera footage certainly doesn't back your claims. That you state you won't return is a blessing. Your custom certainly isn't required. More

This place is just the best of everything! The outlook and ambiance are simply stunning. The staff were attentive and friendly, and each had a sense of humour. We(two couples) arrived at 6.30pm, and we stayed for several hours because we were welcome and comfortable. Food?? I've not experienced such fine quality seafood dishes in years! We certainly celebrated our... More

The 'beside the sea' ambience is quite romantic, but the tables are squashed together, and someone of bigger build may not dine comfortably. A good variety of seafood, but choice of desserts is disappointing.
