A special 5 course dinner for Honey Month using a range of WA honey for all dishes. Loved the pork for main and the plate of dessert specials using honey for nougat, honeycomb and ice cream partnered with honey cake.

Lovely breakfast enjoyed looking out at the beach, with attentive and friendly staff. The young lady that welcomed us was very good at explaining the procedure and where the various food areas were.

Went for lunch with friends, had 2 of the tasting boards. Good variety of foods on both boards even kept vegetarian friend happy. Desserts were VERY good. Excellent service and a fabulous view of the Indian Ocean. Looking forward to going again.

Rode down to Scabs to have a breakfast without the kids. Service pretty good too - although they were struggling to get the pancake machine working. Pretty typical buffet style - bacon and scrambled eggs were good. Other eggs and mushrooms were cold. Some of...More
