Went here for a function. The meals were disorganised - no consistency with meal sizes around the table; some meals were swimming in jus, others barely had a smear on the plate - each course was inconsistent as we looked across the table. I thought the drinks were too expensive - $9 for a pint glass of soda water seemed... More

Vat 2's setting overlooking the beach makes it a winner. Add good decor, prompt friendly service and delicious food and you are set for a great evening. We sat outside and I had the duck and marron salad while my husband had a steak and grilled veggies. Although the word salad had made me expect a fair bit of green... More

Went for lunch with a friend. Just a casual Saturday lunch. Waitress took our order. We waited and waited.... and waited. Drinks came. On arrival at the table I pointed out that my glass was smeared with bright red lipstick and I would like a clean glass. "Oh, I never noticed that" said the waitperson who had walked about twenty...

We celebrated a special birthday with an evening meal at Vat2. There is a new menu and the food was quite outstanding. The service was friendly and good. Small extras made a good celebration even better - staff mae you feel that it was a special occasion and there was even a lift home driven by Vat2 staff! I cannot... More

Spent a lovely Sunday afternoon having a few drinks and nibbles down at the vat2 awesome view of the water. Very relaxing and the service was very attentive without being intrusive.Food is excellent. Well worth coming for a few Sunday afternoons just to sample the menu. I think this is a gem of a place to relax the afternoon away.

Shame this place was so disappointing as it has do much potential. The outlook is lovely and the restaurant itself looks really nice. Had a shocking cocktail here (how do you stuff up a pina colada??) And the dessert was not much better.

Been a couple of times and is always good, has a lovely setting on the beach with a lovely view. The lunch specials are great value, and has a extensive everyday menu.

My Harvey beef sirloin was cooked to perfection and tasted just perfect. The char grilled vege accompaniment was delicious. Both my companions had the pink snapper, which they rated highly. One of them wasn't that keen on the accompanying sauce which was made up of yoghurt and spices though. The Creme Caramel with sorbet dessert was very good. I enjoyed... More

We went to the restaurant on a function to farewell friends. The background music was not at a level that prevented comfortable conversation. The Dutch sommelier was superb and the wine/food mix good.

I don't usually do petty reviews however the price of a take away coffee- $6 was over the top. Travelling Europe recently, the most expensive soy cappuccino coffees are between $4 and $5 Australian Dollars. Paying $6 for a very ordinary coffee here did not go down well.
