Four of us (2couples) staff very accommodating moved tables 4 times finally got one outside with a great view of the harbour. What can I say about the food ? Delicious.. best Tapas!!! $10 a plate .. we ordered kilpatrick and mornay scallops 3 to a plate they were juicy and cooked to perfection best I’ve had!! Oysters mornay and kilpatrick 4 to a plate again great! Lamb wraps 2 to a plate we cut them in 1/2 very tasty, bruschetta 2 to a plate but generous .. beef skewers 2 to a plate ... arichini balls delicious, rocket pear salad yummy ... can’t remember what else we ordered as the champagne was flowing the staff were always there! We didn’t have to wait long for the food when we ordered... loved it !!!

Whilst many rave about this place I am sorry but our experience was not good. At $10 per plate many plates are no doubt good value but others are not. We went with a group and there were several dodgy meals served. The Pickled Octopus salad was a fail with so much vinager it was not edible. Whilst they replaced one of the 2 identical meals the other was ignored. I had the beef skewers and the first 2 were not bad at all so I ordered 2 more, after a 30 minute wait and several questions to staff they arrived half cooked. The meat was "blue" and the onions/capsicum were raw and crunchy, a fail in my books. Looking around this restaurant the average age would have been in the 20's to early 30's so our mob in the 50's to 60's bracket just did not fit in :( Maybe if staff tried a bit more it would have been better, maybe just an off night???

We went here for a date night. Was awful weather but they moved us inside. Restaurant was packed but we didn't wait long for service. One dish was missed but promptly brought out when they realised. Food was good. The ham wasn't what I expected. But the Kilpatrick scallops were amazing. The duck and lamb were good too.

Great menu, lovely food and served quickly, incredible service staff. Best service yet in Hervey Bay with an incredibly wide and delicious menu. Try the ice cream sandwich with pine nuts, unbelievable. Thanks everyone, we will be back.
