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.

Four friends dined here for lunch and we were all very disappointed with the quality and cost of our meals. From a seafood platter, to market fish to chicken , all were of mediocre quality and expensive for what they were. None of us will...be back.More

Service was rubbish. Order your meals at the bar seemed a bit ridiculous given meals were $40 a main. Staff were rude. Food was average at best. Location was the only thing they had going for them. Had coffee and desert next door as we...ran out of time and were kicked out.More

We were looking forward to a relaxing lunch - how wrong we were. There is no table service and the wait staff are bordering on being rude and very unhelpful. You have to line up to order your food and drinks. If you byo you...have to pay corkage, receive a number and wait at your table for your wine glasses to be delivered. Same with food. The tables are all joined and you virtually sit on top of the people at the table next to you. Won’t be rushing back.More

Beautiful setting for lunch, with lots of options to choose from. I had grilled fish and chips with salad. All the food looked amazing especially the desserts.

We’ve been here many times with visitors from overseas and interstate but today’s experience was very disappointing. Menu had been savaged, prices had been significantly increased and the place was a untidy (I appreciate it looks like it’s been renovated). $39 for Fish and Chips...plus a weekend surcharge - will not be back!More

Booked online to celebratey wife's birthday. At arrival it turned out the kitchen was under renovation, menu limited. Ended up with fish and chips. Batter was soggy with oil, fries dry. They should have told me they were renovating and had a limited choice.

The pizza was tasty, however we ordered a bottle of Prosecco waiter just plonked it on the table unopened, I thought if it’s a licensed restaurant it should be opened by the waiter, when my other friend turned up to join us she was charged...for corkage. Not impressed with the unprofessional service.More

We spent a fabulous afternoon with friends at the Waterfront. Live music was performed by James Morrison. The food and service was exceptional not to mention the atmosphere. One of the best lunches we have had in ages. Would highly recommend

Food was poor quality, not worth the price and service was ridiculous- comes down to the GM or Manager who neglect their staff of any formal training or baseline even.

Food is extremely average for the price you pay. No sauce what so ever in the steak sandwich- so dry. The place looks beautiful and overlooks Pittwater which is lovely. They also had live music but was so loud I couldn’t even talk to my...partner so we left to sit out the front. For an expensive restaurant that has no table service - schooners as cocktail glasses and disappointing food I wouldn’t return.More

Not a good experience despite beautiful day and lovely weather. Steak sandwich sounded delicious but very much underdone. I do like rare but not still mooing. Chips were good but $10 for an orange juice is right over the top.

The entrance is at street level and while the pavement is a little broken and rough, you should have no problem getting in. They very helpful and will guide you to your seat. Say hello to Mary and Joe.
