Wonderful location with exceptional service and very professional & friendly staff. The food was to die for and very well priced. We will absolutely be back.

Visited last year - slight layout changes but the food and view was excellent and the NSW tap beers.
Had a steak again which was excellent and cooked exactly as asked for - prices reasonable - wine choice good and views to die for. Oh and the sweet was brilliant.
Be back next year - hope it doesn't change.

Had lunch here - what a location - right on the beach. Food excellent, I had the salt and peppered squid. Service faultless.

We had a fantastic Sunday lunch here on a perfect summer day. It's practically on the beach with views over to Lion island among others. The food was delicious. We shared the seafood platter which was hot and cold. There was a nice lime butter to accompany gravlax and kingfish sashimi and another sauce for the prawns. There were oysters, salt and pepper squid and flathead fillets in a light batter. Everything was very fresh. The chocolate semi freddo with gin soaked berries was delicious as was the affoggato. Though busy, the service was excellent and the atmosphere very relaxed.
