8 friends went for a lunch. Location is wonderful and view beautiful. Staff were friendly and good but food lets this restaurant down badly. Out of the eight of us only 3 finished their meals. The pulled pork open sandwich which 2 of us was inedible and sent back. Calamari was tough and beefburgers were not nice at all really.... More

We came here for dinner as we were staying in the hotel and our taxi driver told us how good it was. We were not disappointed it was excellent. My oysters were really good as were the baked mussels. All the food was superb quality and beautifully cooked but with a difference. Portions were quite large but not over-facing and... More

The location of this dining experience is incredibly beautiful. We had a 180 degrees view of the ocean with moonlight glowing and giving light to a silhouette of palm trees gently blowing in the breeze. There is also an inviting pool at the edge of the dining area. It was a Wednesday and there were only a scattering of other... More

Looked forward to eating here given the reviews but walked away disappointed. We had a starter to share but plates were still out when our mains came, drinks forgotten so we had to chase so not a good impression. Food not bad but overpriced we felt for what you got.

A late decision to stroll from Abell point marina to CSR for dinner as Sorrentos had a group booking, and we weren't disappointed. Maitre'd welcomed us well without a reservation we were well looked after and offered a choice of tables. Meals were very well presented, photograph material, but we resisted the urge! We learnt after the first course this... More

Eating excellent food whilst looking out over Airlie Bay is a great way to spend an evening. We took the pork and the vegetable tart tatin with sides of chips and seasonal vegetables. Both very good, helped by 2 glasses of cold riesling and good service But the price! We paid 131 A$ including a beer and a glass of... More

The restaurant failed to live up to expectations this time. Greeted with "How ya going today guys?" in my opinion is not in keeping with a 4.5 star resort. Neither is a grubby and stained shirt. The service was indifferent and the food wasn't anything special, especially for the prices. To top it off our tab was misplaced so we... More

If you want to experience the best views, delicious food and great service you need to dine here when visiting the Whitsundays. Better still stay at Coral Sea Resort, Airlie Beach.

We stumbled onto this restaurant for lunch during a walk along the beach. The venue overlooks the pool and water and is very relaxing. We had lunch mains and two drinks. Everything was gastronomic. It came to $67. Not inexpensive but we felt it was worth every penny.

Thank justravel
