Four of us on business in the area this week walked in to sit down and enjoy foodie heaven. Such a superb menu we all had real trouble making a decision. We finally made our choices which turned out to exceed our expectations. Food served with flair and pinache. A bottle of cider each ensuring we were replete

I guess my title says it all. We dined at this lovely restaurant midweek for lunch. It was a windy day and we chose to dine inside rather than on the boardwalk, the view over the lake from our window seat was just fabulous. Our waitress was very friendly and efficient. We decided on a share seafood plate as an... More

I got the chilli garlic prawns for entree and they were fantastic, and the pastas were to die for and very large serves. Worth the money and very happy with the service and the food

Outside tables along the boardwalk directly over the lake. Inside, a view from every window. We loved the cocktail list and the menu. It is a large restaurant and would be very busy in peak time. We dined mid week and enjoyed great service and food. Friendly and professional staff. It's worth a return visit from us.

I'll start with the good: Awesome location over looking the water, on a hot night it is amazing to have the sea breeze. Food was pretty good, no complaints there. We had made a reservation in advanced, once we had arrived we are greeted by a couple of waitresses with a confused look. As silenced filled the air (and as... More

ordered the angus beef with seafood. Well presented, great meal. Partner had the risotto, also very good. Reasonably priced. However, ordered the 'wrong island iced tea' from the drinks list for $16.95. Could not taste any alcohol whatsoever. Mentioned this to the wait staff who picked up our plates. She suggested I mention it when paying the bill. I did,... More

We like the location next to the beach. Food is good and staffs are friendly. Arrive early to see sun set and see the pelicans resting nearby after their 3.30pm show.
