    Wonderful location, like a secret harbour vista, the ambience, decor and situation over the boat ramp and moorings - with views over tides towards Quail and French islands was sublime. Sam the super host/manager made our dining experience just wonderful, chefs mastery at our delicious culinary experience was above expectations- the whole evening was above 5 stars - thank you, we’ll definitely be back ✨✨✨✨✨

    We shared a couple of small plates and desserts, enjoyed with a couple of glasses of wine. The food was fresh, innovative and delicious. Sam was very helpful with our selections, providing excellent and friendly service. The outlook was great as it was a sunny day and we enjoyed watching the fishermen return from the morning fishing in the bay. Highly recommend and we look forward to returning again.

    The waitstaff were not helpful. Would have been good to know that if ordering the steak, it was a meat fest and enough for 2 people and was ideally a share plate. Location - fab - the best bit about it. French waiter - arrogant and no menu explanation Dessert menu - underwhelming.

    Menu items were a bit different from the website. The prices were more expensive than were on the website. There were 3 items on the menu that we were keen to try but were sold out which is disappointing. Food however was very good but I feel overpriced.

    We are locals and regularly dine at C’tain Jacks and it’s great however last night we had the feed me menu and while everything was delicious l had an off piece of meat, it smelt so bad l had to spit it out and when l notified staff they were even commenting on the smell, it was absolutely revolting. We spent around $750 on food and wine and l really thought we would have been given a discount or complimentary drink.

    Lovely restaurant in terms of views and decor Food mostly had nice flavours, although the swordfish was bland. Perhaps you would only go here if you want a fancy meal out and would not be your regular restaurant. Disappointed with service. Our main waiter was unfriendly and disinterested. We asked him to explain some of the dishes and his response was “what do you want to know” and we still got nothing. Thank goodness for a google description. Paid our bill and left. Our group then got chased by this waiter, who tells us he charged us he charged us for the wrong table and we needed to pay more. Restaurant wasn’t that busy and no apology and still no smile when he greeted us and when we left. We did have two other staff members attend our table on other occasions and they were in fact extremely helpful and knowledgeable.

    What a wonderful surprise experience at Cptn Jacks! The reviews I'd read were very good but we still weren't certain of what to expect, but it was awesome! I'd have no hesitation in recommending to other diners looking for something new and different. The service from Sam was wonderful, attentive but not bothersome. The food was incredible from the entree's to the mains. The oysters fresh and very tastefully garnished. For entree's we tried the Kingfish, the Tuna and the Scallops - all were so fresh and wonderfully prepared, the scallops were the standouts! Could have eaten a dozen of them. The presentation of everything was outstanding. For main I had the Barramundi which was served with a crusted garnish of light spice and hazelnut and celeriac which was gorgeous! Friends had the Swordfish and the Duck Pie - both gave rave reviews with the Duck Pie presented so uniquely. Make no mistake - this is borderline fine dining with an beautiful balance of flavors and particular attention to presentation on every dish. The chef should be proud! A very good wine list contributed to the experience nicely. My only advice to diners considering Cptn Jacks is around transportation. Drive yourself or pre-book an Uber/Taxi home when you anticipate you'll be ready to leave as phone reception is a little challenging once there and it's a reasonable way out - but worth it every step of the way!

    Two issues. Requested a non alcoholic ginger beer and was served an alcoholic one. It was changed without charge but for a driver (or recovering alcoholic,) could have been a problem! Second,ly, requested a child's portion ice cream as a dessert but was told this was not possible. ???
