This was a great place to have dinner. It was really busy for a Monday night with all tables packed. They appeared a little short staffed so perhaps they were not expecting such a crowd the night before Anzac Day but they managed very well. The lamb shoulder was very tasty and tender, falling apart on touch. The barramundi was... More

We regularly dine here, fantastic location, staff are always so friendly and good at what they do. The food is fresh and the quality can't be faulted. Two adults and three children (kids menu a + :), and everyone was happy. Good selection of wines. Will be returning 👍

We recently caught up with friends at Karma Waters. Neither of our parties had dined here before but had heard a lot of good things so thought we would give it a try. We had a great afternoon. Food was nice and tasty but I'm not sure I would go so far as saying it was awesome or outstanding. Perhaps... More

Wow. What a brilliant restaurant. Could not fault either of the 2 courses we had - too full for dessert. Our waitress was totally under pressure but still managed to give 1st class service. Food was brilliant. Highly recommend

I took my family here twice on holidays. For breakfast it is tough to beat for value. The portion size is generous and food is cooked with love and care. Coffee tastes great. Staff are friendly, cheerful and accommodating and reasonably quick compared to some others on this strip. I would highly recommend this establishment to others for breakfast.

The beef served on a hanging skewer was very tender. It was served with a peri-peri sauce and was cooked to perfection. I think this was the Portuguese Espatada. Very good service. We sat outside and had a nice view of the street scene and beach area.

The Portuguese influence has led to a very interesting menu. Food was delicious, and arrived quite quickly. In particular, we loved the squid entree, but all our dishes were very good. The wine list is small but has a more than adequate range of choices, at reasonable prices. Service was friendly and good humoured. Highly recommended.
