My partner and I took a drive to Kingscliff for something different, we decided to stop and have lunch. We popped into have a drink and decided the menu looked pretty good so we stayed.

The food was delicious, we ordered a couple of entrees to share, the potions are huge so maybe we ordered too much but couldn’t fault anything. The potato Croquettes were full of flavour and cooked with Panko crumbs which makes it even better, we also had the crumbed prawns, bruschetta (which was hard to eat) maybe cut the tomatoes up they kept rolling off my plate. The flavours were there but that dish was not pleasant to eat as I was losing my food. The atmosphere was gorgeous as we could see the beach on a beautiful day. I would come back to try something different.

The service was also very friendly. Thanks again guys for a wonderful experience.

Ably led by Jordan, Bar and Bistro Manager, the staff here do a great job helping patrons relax, order the great food and sample the excellent selection of beers and wines- and soft beverages I'm sure but I didn't sample them! Including our third family wedding reception at Babalou Wedding and function room, we had four fabulous nights of hospitality, fun and god food at this place over eight days. The children's Play Area added to the relaxed environment for such entertainment. Of course it gets very busy at peak periods but the staff accomodate you very well and enable you and your guests or friends to have a great time.

Great Pub in a fabulous location with space to sit and relax that is very open and airy.
Hype of activity on a weekend or when there is entertainment . Great place to see a band.
Food good, Free shuttle bus and friendly staff.

We called into this busy pub at about 1pm for lunch. Heaps of seating areas available so we had no trouble finding a table. We ordered snapper and schnitzel from the specials menu.The snapper was nice but quite a small plate, we felt it really needed 2 pieces of fish instead of 1 piece. Sorry guys but the schnitzel was very dry and quite crispy. While it was nicely presented we both felt the salad let it down as well. It was coleslaw in cabbage leaves with a very small amount of dressing so it was really quite dry and there was far too much of it. We would have enjoyed a nice fresh green salad instead.The service was excellent as was the ambience.

Great atmosphere, relaxed, plenty of room, excellent food menu and great service. We were a big family group, catered for really well and given plenty of room to spread out across several areas, outside, inside and the pool (billiards) area. Great place!
