My hubby wants to eat a steak. This is certainly a great choice for dinner eating out. I ordered a ribeye steak medium cooked for him and a salmon steak for myself. My salmon steak is juicy and delicious but the ribeye is not so tender but have good beefy flavour. Grab a seat outdoor for ocean views.

Dear yfylou Thank you very for taking the time to write a review for the The Aussie Barbeque we appreciate it very much. I am sorry your rib eye steak was not as tender as it should have been. I wish I had been made aware of it. I hope next time it is better. More

Went to the Aussie Bar on the 30th June with family and friends and had a lovely evening. This restaurant is on the water front and from there you can watch some spectacular sunsets. We had the Sri Lankan taster meal which was delicious and others in our party had fish and salads. The Pavlova was really good and portion... More

This is down on the Waterfront it was a busy night we had to wait for a table next to the sea. But well worth the wait because the Rib eye steak was so delicious & tender. We order the cheesecake this is the best cheesecake I have tasted. Services was polite & fast.

Im not one to leave reviews (good or bad), in fact, im not one to leave reviews at all.

Tom I am truly sorry for your girlfriends gastric disorder, I am not sure what the agenda is here, but we did not sell a burger on the said date. Both kitchen & till dockets all match up. More

Had a burger last night and it tasted good at the time but woke up with chronic diaorrehea! The meat looked cooked so it was probably a question if hygiene. I know this was not brought on the by anything else as I hadn't eaten anything except fruit that day. I fly out on Tuesday and this has ruined my... More

Sophie - I am shocked & sorry to read your review. On your own admission you state that the burger that you ate at The Aussie BBQ was tasty & well cooked. However the following morning you developed symptoms of food poisoning & accuse our hygiene standards for your unfortunate circumstances. I take offence to your accusations, as in the... More

We went for a stroll along the waterfront and among all the restaurants located here, we ended up eating at "The Aussie Barbecue and Bar" for several reasons: Friendly and non-intrusive personnel (unlike some of the neighboring places), live music at a decent level such that a normal conversation can be kept while eating, appealing menu. We both ended up... More
