Went here on strength of TripAdvisor review and have to say that we were disappointed. Scallops were good and squid alright. Both had duck leg at $39 each and found the dish to be seriously over flavoured with 5 spice or similar which resulted in every thing having the same taist. This taist remained for two hours afterwards. Overall pricey,... More

We love everything about this restaurant. The location over the water, the gentle sound of a fountain, pelicans floating on by. The seafood platter was generous and fresh fresh fresh.. and the accompanying fruit succulent and ripe. An idyllic setting and perfect every time!

Again went here because of other people's reviews. Tempura prawn entree was good, however seafood mixed grill left a lot to be desired - seafood tough and over cooked. Deserts good. View at sunset was good

Dined at The Point on Friday night. Had a table on the balcony with a view of the most sensational sunset. Staff were very attentive and friendly and nothing seemed too much trouble. All our meals were delicious. We started off with drinks, my husband had a local cider which was the only thing that was a bit tasteless, I... More

After searching for some local restaurants to eat at, this restaurant at first stood out. Starter: Olives were just warm and had no flavour was meant to be orange and chilli and the squid salad was ok. Entree: - chicken liver pate was good, not enough crackers to go with it though, and it was missing the butter set on... More

Situated in Soldiers Point (near Nelson Bay NSW) the staff, service and food is amazing cant fault it. the position is in an upstairs restaurant with a magnificent water view. I don't normally have desserts the Brule is to die for. Best dinning experience in the whole of Port Stephens without a doubt. Your taste buds will orgasm lol

Friends suggested we go there because of the great view and, although a little reluctant from one past experience, we were pleasantly surprised. We were warmly greeted by the staff and asked about "inside or outside". Although outside is covered, it was a hot day so inside it was. At about the right pace they asked about pre-lunch drinks and... More
