Had family meal with 2 young children. Seated on balcony providing spectacular views of sun setting. Food excellent. One point which would have made a difference was the not so friendly waitress .

We were here for my birthday dinner and it was a great choice both for its food, its superb service & the beautiful twilight view over the waters. We started with the Kilpatrick oysters. For the mains, we ordered a seafood mixed grill - which included prawns, scallops, squid, salmon with Asian vegetable stir fry - as well as the... More

Only a short 10 minute drive from Nelson Bay, The Point runs true with other TripAdvisor reviews. Excellent menu choice, particularly for seafood options. Good wine list to match. Attentive service with tables offering a great view over the bay.

We order seafood platter and seafood grilled mix. Seafood mixed grill was quite small, only for one person but it was great taste. Seafood platter was large in portion but full of cold and fried seafood. We were not happy because it made us feel greasy. Spaghetti was great. The best thing was spectacular view, the best in Nelson Bay... More

We booked for a late lunch arriving just after 2. They were very happy to accommodate such a late arrival. Indeed we could have come st 3 and still been welcome. Fabulous view over marina and stormy bay. Our waitress gave us a recently vacated window table as requested and they set it up in a flash. The noise of... More

A short walk from our Glamping accommodation - I had made a booking here earlier in the week for dinner on Friday night to celebrate my husbands birthday. I'm glad I did as we got the best seat in the house - we went in early March so 7pm was the perfect time to arrive as we got to enjoy... More

Rediscovered this place by accident recently and it's even better than before. Flavours and complexity of the dishes was everything you expect from great restaurants. Dishes were​ well presented and very good value for money as the servings are on the large size of upper end dining. Budget for about $50 p/person which included a market price Daintree Barramundi​ dish... More

Exceptional service and food quality here. I had the grilled seafood- all fresh and delicious. My husband had the sirloin - cooked to perfection. There is warm hospitality and very reasonably priced. Can't recommend highly enough.

I booked in dinner for my partner and I at this restaurant and the food was very average. I must say, the service was lovely. The salad that was served up with the chicken I had was very soggy. It was simply a Greek salad drowned in mayo.
