Location was great but food was very slow and well below standard. It took an hour for our food to arrive and then our entrees and mains came together. Asked for a medium steak and got a raw one instead. Very disappointing.

Too noise, people not considered of other people. Food ok, wine good, service slow. Coffee took to long, had to keep asking where coffee was. Not overly impressed.

The food and location were great. However, the level of services was terrible. We booked our table for 7pm, arrived on time, ordered by around 7.15. For the next hour no one checked if we wanted more drinks, we asked twice how long our food would be and no one returned with an update. We asked a 3rd person who said they were doing it right then, took another 15 mins for 3 out of 4 meals to arrive then another 5 for the 4th meal. We had to ask for water twice before it was bought out.

We were given a discount, barely any apology and overall were disappointed with the experience. Terrible, terrible communication and customer service. If you are under staffed and things are slow just say from the outset!!!

We went 7pm Saturday. Great location and view but that’s where it ends for me. Had orders taken from 3 different staff. First drinks came out quick enough but Stone and Wood ale was not cold enough - like having a room temperature ale in an English pub. Then the food took 45 minutes to arrive. We had the Seafood platter for 2, so not al la carte. Fries came out first but they were cold. Scallops over cooked. Nothing was seasoned. Best on the platter were the prawns and the oysters but these are just bought not cooked, so can’t really give much points for this as it was not really busy. We had to ask after our second round of drinks were taking over 10 minutes to arrive. Didn’t bother having a third drink. We expected better all round really.

Seafood plater for two is exceptional.
Ambiance is great shame about the workmen who coated the new concrete floor with a toxic lacquer just as lunch service began.

We had booked for a bean bag, once we arrived we were told there were none available, we sat behind and the waitress told us once someone left we could move to a beanbag. Someone did leave and we moved over, then ordered a couple more drinks, 20 minutes passed and we hadn’t received our drinks, went to ask the staff how far off our order of 2 basic drinks was, the staff member then told us they hadn’t put the order through and rudely told us we weren’t supposed to move seats without letting staff know as they hadn’t moved our tab across. We found the staff to be a bit unorganised and contradictory considering we were told to move when possible for the seating we had previously booked, as well as forgetting to process our simple order. Other then that the ambience was very nice and the food and drink was yummy.

The food fabulous, location stunning, pet friendly, plenty of wait staff with top notch IT ordering and communication devices.
The only negative if you could call it that, the table was a tad too small for all the cups saucers plates and cutlery caddy.

A very disappointing experience in every aspect. The food was well below standard with greasy hash browns clearly from a frozen packet, yet they charge high prices! The service was shocking-grumpy staff who don’t smile and certainly don’t want to give any actual service . The tables are crammed in together which makes it impossible to stay 1.5m away from other diners and is in no way covid safe. The only reason anyone must go here is for the view and you can’t see it from most of the seats anyway! Do yourself a favour and take a picnic to the grass area next door and enjoy a better view and most definitely better food! Worst restaurant experience I’ve had in a long time. Don’t waste your money.

The staff were extremely busy but still friendly. From being seated to when we left was 1hr 15min we had our dinner and dessert. The food was lovely. Only suggestion was music too loud my dad has industrial hearing loss so he was unable to hear conversation over music. The playlist was a great selection maybe just turn down a little. But the night was lovely thankyou

It was crowded and very noisy. Most of all unpleasant with the strong cold winds from the ocean.
The food was basic but good however expensive .
On a calm night it would be a lot better.

While the food was amazing and the view spectacular, it was busy and the wait staff rushed off their feet. Twice our meal (entree&main) was delivered to the wrong table and when the second drink I ordered didn’t arrive we left. They couldn’t even get our bill right, so must have been a mix up with table numbers. We both loved our meals though and the sunset made up for anything else

Great location, good good and friendly staff. Food would have been 5 out of 5 if the calamari wasn’t so salty but the rest of the seafood platter was excellent.

Enzo's was a good experience. The staff was friendly, the atmosphere lively and the food tasty. The only downsides were that the food did take a long time to get served and the staff weren't as attentive as I would have liked.

We shared the calamari main as an entree, it was delicious and the avocado mayonaisse was wonderful, this would easily feed 3 people as an entree.
We each had the tassie salmon for main, so delicious and a decent size portion

Good food and drinks. We enjoyed our fathers day lunch until we were told we needed to leave only 40 min after our booking time (twice in 5 min) our table was just cleared and the bill was bought out and we were told we had 2 min to leave (even though there were at least 7 tables free atthe time). I asked "how long is a booking for" which I was told usually an 1.5-2 hrs. We said that we have only been here for 40 min and we would like to let our food settle.
Apart from this disappointing end the service was ok.

The scenery was lovely and the staff were pleasant. Unfortunately we weren’t super thrilled about our meals as we expected a bit more to them. The chicken burger was just spinach, tomato and chicken for $24. And the adults fish and chips the same size as the kids but double the price. They were pleasant tasting just not amazing.

The cafe was busy on Saturday morning, however we had made a booking and there was only 2 of us. Our breakfast took 40 minutes to be served. Although I only had toast, it was cold and my husband's bacon and eggs were only mildly warm. Ambience was nice by the water and staff were pleasant and helpful.

Excellent fine dining, would of given a 5 star except our main meal was served to us only a few minutes after our entree was served. Our main meal went cold. Not enough time to enjoy the meal , other than that, absolutely fantastic overall.

I was discriminated against for abiding by the Laws of this land, including the Chief Health Officer's Direction. Your staff members, Stacey and Mia, refused me and my friend service because we would not show our mobile phones. We are NOT REQUIRED to show anyone our personal information or our personal device, and you as an establishment are NOT REQUIRED to enforce such a unlawful request onto your staff members. I will be taking this further by submitting a formal complaint. Should you choose to deny us a remedy, I will again escalate your unlawful and discriminatory actions to WorkSafe and other formal legislative regulatory bodies.
Thanks, Kara
