We were very disappointed with this restaurant after such high expectations as an amazing family restaurant with fantastic views! Firstly it was 5.30 pm so very busy as expected, staff were rushed but quickly came and took drink and entrée orders. Unfortunately no view as all of the ugly shades were pulled down. Food and drinks were served within 10... More

We arrived on Sunday evening at 7pm without a reservation and we were impressed that we were immediately seated in the super crowed restaurant. We were expecting it to be busy, after all it is a family restaurant and it was a Sunday, unfortunately this is where our enjoyment ended. Upon being seated our waiter Nathan informed us that they...

We visited for a late dinner the other week with my family. The waitress was friendly and really efficient. We had yummy chicken, fish and potato skin dishes alongside the yummy salad bar. Everything was tasty and fresh and affordable. Great views of the ocean too! Highly recommend for a cheerful meal thats affordable for everyone.

Went for a family meal and was not disappointed. Wonderful views, the meal was good, tasty flounder and a great salad bar. Dated decor (80s), and lighting, could be improved.

Book in advance on weekends to avoid disappointment. This place gets pretty full during peak lunch hour. About 45 mins scenic drive along State Highway 1 from Wellington City. The food is great. The "Salad Boat" is a Salad Bar with a variety of very tasty Salads and Greens. This comes free any any light or full meal. "The Platter"... More

The best thing about this restaurant is the view over the water. The rest was only OK. It's very 80s, with the salad bar and menu.

Consistently excellent meals and service. The salad bar is always refreshed and has a great range of salads. The fish is well prepared and presented.. The view over the sea is superb, try to get a window booth ! Good parking outside the door.

We like coming here for unpretentious food and friendly service. This is not gourmet but always nicely cooked fish in fact I usually always go for the flounder and great selection of salads as well as hot cauliflower potatoes and carrots. We always want to stay for dessert but get too full. Monday night and by 630pm the whole restaurant... More

Really enjoyed the setting. Had a light lunch of seafood which was very nice. Salad bar included was cool. Would certainly have a meal here again.
