We were staying at the resort and found the Bar & Bistro an easy option for dinner. My husband & I shared a Fishermans Basket which was well cooked, quite large and a good assortment of seafood - battered prawns, battered fish pieces, crumbed calamari,...More

Lots of locals use this as an economical and handy location that is child friendly. Food is average pub fare. I wouldn't travel miles to come here, but it is handy if you are in the neighbourhood. Nice beachy vibe.

Was a bit of a let down eating here. Great staff, not great food. Everything looked and tasted like it came out of a box....Packaged frozen food. I would go back here for food.

Visited here for couples getaway. Not appropriate scene for super loud live music. Terrible sound as music was too loud to be appreciated. Poor form for relaxed beach vibe it should be.
