Part of Peppers Blue on Blue. Full breakfast was great selections although later in morning food could've been warmer. In early breakfast and food hot. Ate dinner on their steak night (Tues) and very nice at a good price.

Although my spouse enjoyed his steak, my barramundi accompanied by 3 prawns and a lackluster salad was very disappointing, considering it was $38. Skin was quite soggy and unappetizing Considering the high cost, very disappointing.

This restaurant is part of Peppers Hotel right by the marina. It's mostly glass so there are lovely views from the restaurant both inside and out on the large deck. Much more high end than the other local restaurants which tend to be cheap and...More

The Boardwalk Restaurant & Bar has a great variety for all occasions.From Lunch on the deck over looking the marina,too fine dining at dinner.Executive Chef Rodney Smith has combined fresh ingredients and local produce in his menus that will tantalize your taste buds. Now we have gone back to what we do best and wow our guests with the flavour combinations that we are renown for. A warm breeze swirls over the marina boardwalk and the lights of the resort glitter in the water, while above your table the clear night skies over the island sparkle. This unbelievably romantic setting can be enjoyed from all areas of the restaurant and bar as doors are folded back into an al-fresco experience. On your plate, you have the choice of seafood straight from the reef and other tropical delights, accompanied by beautiful fine wines and fresh cocktails. This is island style dining at its finest and an authentic celebration of tropical produce.
