We all enjoyed a delicious lunch at Cecada last week! The hosts nicely reorganised the restaurant floor to accomodate 10 of us! They had a special menu on Easter Friday offering a nice variety of affordable options from garlic prawns, to barramundi fillets, salmon dish and fish & chips. The service was very good and the food very fresh and... More

RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 13 February 2017

Dropped in on a quiet Monday night and was not expecting to be blown away. My wife and I ordered some mixed oysters and they were outstanding. I ordered the pork belly for my main and my wife ordered the grilled salmon. Both were perfect and this was the best meal we had had in years. The service was attentive... More

Me and my wife went to Cecada on Easter Day Out and tried the seafood platter for two. We enjoyed the amazing food and friendly service. Very beautiful loacation as well as it is by the sea.

Arrived at 9am for breakfast before flying out and waited 30minutes for a long black to arrive and food was well over an hour! Two breakfast meals which were ordinary to say the least. Bland as. Only one waiter on and it was busy due to a surf contest across the beach. Should have had more staff in. The concrete... More

Cecada is next to George's which is always full. We wanted space and fresh air - not to be hemmed in by a roof and plastic curtained walls. Our dinner was great. The food was interesting and lovely, the wines suggested were great and the service really good. AND they do crepe suzette for dessert!

My mother had two 89th birthday lunches at Cecada this week, one with 11 friends, the other with 8 family. The service was great both times, with a free bottle of wine and lovely dessert with sparkler adding to the enjoyment of the lunch on her actual birthday. Everyone enjoyed their meals, and the service was unobtrusive but attentive. It's... More

Lovely breakfast and great service a little pricey but was a lovely brekky. Never thought to have brekky here as always empty but definitely worth a try will not disappoint.

Located on the first level of Reflections Tower Two, Cecada offers room service to your room. We dropped down and ordered our food thinking the restaurant menu might be different from the room service menu. It wasn't but more importantly, the prices were exactly the same as in the restaurant with no service charge (unless it's a holiday). The food... More
