The Cienna Restaurant is located in the Sebel golf resort at Pelican Waters, so we had high expectations! We ordered the oysters kilpatrick for entree which were quite tasty! However for mains I ordered the Sandcrab cannelloni, which really was just false advertising! White sauce cannelloni is a more accurate description! & my partner ordered a medium steak with chips...

A walk in diner - not a busy night so the service was very good. Ordered the sirloin as blue and was cooked very well. This piece of meat was very good, simple offering

A very good location for dinner when staying at Pelican Waters Golf Resort & Spa, with a good menu range & wine selection. We stayed on a Thursday evening, and was surprised that it was not that busy, but I guess they feed off the resort occupancy.

We shared a nice scallop entree and then each had a salmon dish - mine was quite nice with lots of green veges, but my partner's fish didn't taste as nice (even though it was the same dish that we ordered). The kids meals were reasonably priced and good. The dessert we ordered... More

My partner had the fish that was fine. I had the risotto. Someone might use 'delicate flavours' I say bland unfortunately. I smothered it with salt as it had no seasoning at all. Some Parmesan cheese would have made all the difference. I had the apple fritters for desert. When I cut into my first one I thought it was... More
