I eat here often and have never been disapointed. The food is delicious and cooked to perfection. An understated gem of a place. I recommend to all of my friends. The best place i have found to eat in 11 years of being on the coast.

English is definetely not the waitress's strong language, so after finally ordering the meals 3 entrees arrived and then 15 minutes later arrived the other 3, the same for the main meals. We ordered a prawn dish and the prawns were overcooked and tasted like rubber, the vegetables were mush,... More

The service could do with an extra smile or two but as far as bang for your buck goes in Robina, this little gem deserves a place near... More
