Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

WOW what a view and the meal was sensational. I booked here for Valentines day with a few friends and were extremely happy with the service, the food and especially the view. Can't recommend this highly enough.

The service was quite good, food was very ordinary & expensive. I feel the restaurants saving grace is the location. Also paying for parking( council) is an extra cost. May I suggest a deal could be organised between the restaurant and the council discounts for...the dining patrons.More

Absolutely terrible food. I had the garlic pizza, which is advertised with buffalo mozzarella. I could not taste garlic, and there was no buffalo mozzarella on the pizza. The base was very bad. It was basically a very sodgy base with cheap cheese. We also...had to send my wife's duck dish back, smelled, and tasted terrible. The manager offered me a drink on the house but won't refund. I emailed them afterwards and still have had no response. Bad service, bad food, won't be back.More

We had a bridal shower here on a set menu. We booked in the restaurant but they put us in the cafe because there was a wedding on the at they didn’t tell us about. The aircon was leaking on our table so we had...to move. We had called the venue to confirm our booking number the day before (which was 4 less then the original booking) and they made us pay full price for the people that were not there. There was very poor communication from them when organizing our event. When we initially asked if there was availability for lunch on our date they said yes. After discussing over a few days and going ahead with the venue they said they never held our booking and gave us a lunch booking for 3pm.More

OK... the Restaurant at night is divided into 2- a reception type area and separate fine dining area LHS ...was a bit confusing on arrival. In the day the whole pace is available. Parking next door in Council area $8 an hour even for locals...with a sticker. Yes its expensive ...but what a location and quality food . Service was very good and the menu and the actual food and presentation was very good. Perfect for that special occasion. We enjoyed our selves very much ...well done guys ...and girls. Perfect location for visitors who want fine dining.More

We are locals and have gone here since it opened. We went mid pm on a Sunday afternoon and easy to get a table . Served a drink then the wait staff totally ignored us, had to get up and I found the manager who...got a waitress to our table finally. When we got our mains one meal didn’t come out with the other three, just waited thinking it would be served but after about 5 minutes no meal, again no wait staff so had to get up to find someone, waited about another 5 minutes and finally the missing Duck dish turned up, the young blonde waitress just chucked it on the table and walked off, full on attitude. Very expensive average food with no service.More

It's a beautiful spot, with nice food though watch out for the 10% surcharge for eating there on the weekend. Plus, if anyone from your party pulls out and you let them know within 24hrs you still have to pay for them. We had a...party of 20 that later became 16, but we still had to pay full price for the 4 that pulled out and the 10% surcharge on top. It left a bad feeling, they were very uncompromising. They had the chance of ruining the whole occasion, though we didn't let it.More

An excellent lunch in an idyllic waterside setting. My wife and I visited for lunch today and had a lovely lunch. My wife had fish and chips and and I had chicken supreme followed for dessert by chocolate fondant pudding and sticky date pudding which...we shared. Excellent quality and very friendly and professional staff. The setting right by the water is lovely. Would I go again? Most definitelyMore

Aggressive service. Took an hour for a pizza. Lacks ambience. The location by the water is great. Their staff seem to be in disarray and after asking three time for our meals we had to ask for a credit. Never going back again.

The food was terrific! We had a choice of Oysters including Bloody Mary Oyster shots which kicked us off well. Our starters were tasty seared scallops with citrus flavours and a taste of ricotta too. Barramundi with a bouillabaisse sauce, and a plate of Kingfish...with a bed of vegetables and colourful tasty puree. Pizza too, for some of us which was simple and tasty. Desserts were delicious sticky date with caramel and a made to order chocolate fondue with pistachio's both with homemade ice cream. Wine and beers as well as coffee during and after the meal. Throw in one of the best views and locations in NSW and we came away feeling happy and satisfied. Thank you!! would highly recommend.More

We had lunch here (on Mothers Day) The setting is picturesque and the food was very good. They were very busy on the day we were there and there are a few things that could have been better e.g. had to ask for cutlery for...our mains and staff seemed confused as to where to deliver orders to but overall a good experience and would recommend.More

Great place. Staff were super friendly. Food was great and large servings. The ambience was perfect with the doors open for fresh air at the suggestion of the staff. The owner even came and checked in on us which was well received. Highly recommend.

Decor is cute, but cleanliness and operations are far from great. Room smelled musty. Bugs were in the shower. We stayed 2 nights and were instructed to put a sign on the door requesting that our room be cleaned after the first night between 10:30am-12pm....We put out the sign but returned to find the room unclean and the front desk closed. Front desk didn't open until after 9am the following morning, so we had to pick up our dirty towels off the floor to reuse them.More
