Had a great experience here tonight, with sensational food and fantastic service. The restaurant was very busy but staff were up to the challenge! We can highly recommend the seafood linguini, and the sirloin steak was big and beautifully cooked. Thankyou for a wonderful meal! Worth every cent.

Arrived at Magnetic on Tuesday which happened to be the Steak Special night at this Restaurant. We booked in for 2 people. Service was great and we chose to sit on the verandah as it was a lovely night. We ordered a wine each and the steak special. My friend had rare & I had medium. Bad move by both... More

From the moment we arrived, the staff looked after us really well. We took our time ordering, just enjoying the beautiful surroundings (and a few wines). The food was beautifully presented and delicious. I ordered my steak rare and it was perfectly cooked and just melted in my mouth. Will certainly be back. Thank you to the staff who looked... More

Surprised my boyfriend for afternoon drinks & dinner on the island here at Boardwalk on Sunday. It was a little too windy for outside but the lounges were great for sipping on cocktails. We had a great table on the side balcony for dinner which was the perfect setting as the sun went down. Food was fantastic & even got... More

My husband and I had a lovely meal last night in this restaurant. Good restaurants in Nelly Bay of this calibre restaurant seem to be far and few between. The prices were comparable to other restaurants of this standard. A good selection of dishes. They were well presented and plentiful. Tuesday night was steak night for $19.90, really good value,...

$30 for average buffet breakfast. It seems a la carte not offered on a sunday?? Overpriced. Poor selection. Average fruit. Average service. Worth going to horseshoe bay for a decent feed. Coffee ok. A little hot.

Ordered the barramundi, obviously very fresh fish ( as you'd expect for the price). Our waitress for the night seemed uninterested in our table (possibly because we are the the type of clientele they would typically get through the restaurant). All in all, the food was great, but I probably wouldn't eat here again.

We went to this restaurant while staying at Peppers Resort on Magnetic Island and it was lovely. The service was good and the food selection and wine choices were great. The staff were helpful and friendly. This restaurant had been recommended to us and we weren't disappointed. Would highly recommend a meal or two here!
