Went in for a cold drink and even though the restaurant was basically empty, the staff refused to give us a table and insisted on seating us in a waiting room type lounge. Staff were very blunt and unattentive, when we asked for more ice...More

I had a picnic on the beach here by the bath houses on New Years Day- loads of people around and tourists aking photos of the bath houses. A must see for anyone visiting from outside of Melbourne.

The staff were extremely rude and it seemed too difficult a task to prepare a simple milkshake. I would NOT recommend this establishment. There are better places around.

Had dinner here with friends. Cocktails were nice but a little pricey. Views were lovely of the bay and distant lights. All very pretty. Food didn't disappoint and the highlight was desserts which were yummy. I had the creme brûlée, hubby had the chocolate mousse,...More
