Stayed at the Bayview Resort - this is the resort's restaurant. The serve breakfast and dinners. A fair al a carte menu but the nightly $22 special was, I thought, good value. We ordered Surf and Turf from the al a carte; steak was cooked as asked and the prawns in a creamy garlic sauce - very good.

The food is reasonably priced and there is a $22 special each night. On Saturday night when we were there it was roast beef which two of our party chose. Verdict was the beef was quite tasty and plentiful, with roast veggies. I chose the chicken parmigiana and it was a very large serve. My only complaint was the sauce... More

Stayed at Bayview Resort, restaurant was conveniantly located. We were tempted by the $22 rib special on Tuesday. We were warmly greeted by front of house staff. We were seated near female toilet and kitchen and had to endure the noise from the ice crushing machine which was loud enough to stop conversation whenever someone ordered a cocktail. We don't...

Made to feel very welcome by waitstaff who did their best to accommodate us, "Wifey" ordered the special of the day while I ordered chicken schnitzel, both dishes arrived at the table in no time at all which I put down to the fact that the chef could cook it quickly as the restaurant was nearly empty, I think it...

Nice place, we stayed at the resort so this was the obvious place to have dinner on our first night as its a very short stroll from the villa. The food was quite nice, though I think the prices are quite high and do not reflect the quality of food that is served. I would put it on par with... More

We went on a Thursday night in off peak season with only three other parties in the place. The decor is dated, as is their menu. Our dinner guest seemed to enjoy the surf & turf and the snitty with mushroom gravy. My pork tenderloins were overpowered by the pepper sauce and the six kilograms of sweet potato wedges. My...
