    We had lunch following our daughters first communion as a celebration. The food was delicious, didn’t have to wait long & the staff were lovely. Perfect spot for a quick bite or a long lunch. The gorgeous ocean views are just a bonus!

    Food was absolutely delicious. Service was poor, it was fast enough but we weren’t told about the specials and we had to instigate being seated to our table & flag down waitress. Venue was a bit noisy but otherwise very nice. Would definitely go back for the food, food as 10/10

    I had the seafood barramundi fish and chips with salad. Good value, good serve and well presented ...perfect.. Hansel and the rest of the staff attentive. We were sitting outside so as the day progressed it was cold despite the heaters...just the day no ones fault. If I had stayed longer I would have moved inside. Hansel and the attentive staff polite and courteous. I have been there before and enjoyed the meal and ambience but this time I invited my twin brother and his wife. Lisa had local mussels and really enjoyed them. Enjoy the "Crackerjack DVD" has been in my cupboard for a while. I live in Mornington and told myself it would be a fitting place for the DVD when I next return to the Restaurant. A big thankyou to Hansel and the rest of the staff. Regards Annie Gummow.

Our party ordered four different meals choices with excellent reviews and praise by all. Manager was super helpful giving us options as to where to sit and the lovely young waitresses were extremely efficient and friendly. Great experience.

    We asked to move from a table near the door,but the table we moved to hadn’t been wiped down & that wasn’t too pleasant.Also received a glass of wine with lipstick on the glass. For those reasons we would think twice about returning,the food we had was very good though

    The staff were lovely but were showing signs of stress as I imagine some diners may have not had as much patience as we did. Firstly a warning that you have to pay to park outside the restaurant and it was around $13. I found out later that this is the default payment 'up to 4 hours' but you can select the minus button to reduce to 1 hour. However, we hadn't received our food over an hour after ordering with no update of when it would be arriving. When you only have an hours break for lunch it would have been nice to have found out at around the 30 minute mark that they were running behind. They were kind enough to make a cheese and tomato toastie which wasn't on the menu for one of the party who wanted a light snack but after more than an hour asked for it as a takeaway.

    as usual food,service and wait staff were terrific we took friends with us as they had never been before and both myself and my wife had been talking up the prawn dish as an entree as we have previously ordered them several times in the past,only to find out they were no longer an option on the menu,we ordered the scallops and they were nice but not as nice as the old prawn entree,both my wife amd i spoke to a waiter as we were leaving and told him we missed the prawns,he thanked us for our feedback and said he would pass on our thoughts,so both my wife and myself request you bring them back as an entree or even as a main thank you from Jo and Noel Murray.
