This was a busy restaurant. We ate here twice and could have eaten again as the menu was great. The seafood was fresh and tasty the service friendly and on time. I was impressed given how busy the place was.

We stayed at the resort and ate here after a long drive from Broome. The food was fantastic and the staff were great. Highly recommended if you are in the area. You don't need to be a guest at the resort to use the restaurant.
