Food here was great. Convenient if you are staying around the main area around surfers. Staff was super friendly and welcoming. They kept coming back to check if everything was ok. Price was also reasonable

Staff are super friendly and offer full table service. Nice place great to have music to listen to over dinner. Only downfall is good was average. My fish was way to overcooked and my chips tasted like fish.

Such a fun place... great value Vodka, Lime & Sodas for $5 each. Music was catered for us mums until the younger crowd started arriving, we then left (which is fine). Security was very helpful with a situation.

We had an awesome night here and found bar staff attentive. The photographer that was taking photos was really lovely! I ordered the espresso martini special but would definitely not recommend - it tasted off.

Place from the outside looks amazing but the food we had was terrible (a pizza each). The waitress didn’t seem to care when we told her. She said “most people love it” and walked off. My partner doesn’t feel well today but I guess hard...More
