Went here for a spontaneous late lunch and the food was fantastic. It was very fresh, nicely presented (for simple cafe style food) and quick to be served. Recommend this one for a quick lunch.

We were promised a lovely Italian meal by our friend and we're not disappointed. The did was excellent. The wine list is a little lacking but we had a wonderful evening. The restaurant was full and I overheard a local accommodation owner asking for material for their guests. Dad that the current owners will be moving on in January. Well be going back regularly before they leave.

Il Piccolo Golden Beach, is still just about as good as when it was new. Naturally the menu has changed, and in fact it has been reduced in listings by perhaps 10%, but still the old favourites are there.

The atmosphere is perfect for quiet refined dining, with soft background music, quality furniture and décor, carpets and air-conditioning . Chef Laslo in the open kitchen with his traditional high hat really completes the picture.

Reasonable prices which do not offend too much, make the dining experience even more acceptable, when it comes to bill time. But meanwhile, the traditional Italian food (no pizzas!) never fails to impress.

A new addition is lunch time specials for $9 - $11 - limited choices, but unbeatable value.

After being told the food was good by a local we decided to go and have dinner. Big mistake! We could hear the microwave being continually used which raised our suspicions and this was confirmed with the service of the dishes. I'd been looking forward to the seafood marinara but after the first mouthful I knew I was in for a letdown. Tasteless and poor quality seafood. The only salad available was a small bowl of mesclun and tomato with dressing. Desserts were nice however, I believe they were frozen or bought in.

Good food, quickly made, we ordered three pasta dishes and one from the mains menu. All were lovely. Reasonably priced also.
