It's very pleasant as there's outdoor seating and if you like the sun the seats are usually empty as most hide in the shade. The staff are very good and there's a good lunchtime menu and in our experience the food is... More

Food great, drink great, music great and, if you visit in summer, a fantastic place to relax and people watch. Ive been to Breakwater a few times and always make a point of visiting when I'm in Australia.

Went here on a number of occassions and found bar to be airy and clean .Staff were very good and other establishments could learn a thing or two about customer care from them. Nice interesting location allows you to view the the world passing by on foot or on water. The only complaint I have is the volume of the... More

Nice range of meals at a reasonable price overlooking the marina. Haven't been there for a couple of years but I enjoyed it and will be back.

Lunch was spectacular. I can not fault the whiting, goats cheese and the massive steak sandwich. Drinks are reasonably priced and the coffee and sweets did not disappoint. The staff were attentive and did not hesitate to bring more water or clear the tables.just a lovely long lunch. Booking is possible and the views are spectacular.
