Unfortunately the food was a let down. The lamb I ordered was tasteless and the rumbling my partner brought was dry. The kids burger was good though.

I always enjoy a trip to Full Moon and as it was my birthday, my husband booked a table with a very nice view. Really enjoyed the meal and the service was good

The staff were very accommodating, they gave us a table in the sun and when we asked if we could move they were more than willing to help. The meal came quickly and we all enjoyed it very much.

My table request was honoured & was in a great location. Food was yummy. Starters & mains came a little too close together but it is pub service so understandable. Bar staff were lovely.

Food was tasty & fresh. Salads were fresh and abundant. Steaks were ok but over priced. Burger was huge & good value.

Many of the meals served at our table of 10 could have fed 2 people each. Next time we’ll order 1 meal + salad.

Relaxed ambiance with a little view of the ocean across the road through the gum trees. It was a pleasant birthday lunch venue.

Reef and beef night catching up with family can’t beat it for location overlooking the bay, value for money and great steaks cooked perfectly. The night was finished perfectly with coffee and choc coated snake confectionary for adults and kids.😀

Love this Hotel, it's always got a great atmosphere, I had the chilli linguine, the flavour was a bit bland, partner had steak which was cooked to perfection.

I unfortunately forgot about the outside seating. We were allocated a table so didn't get to choose. It is quite cold there on a winter night (plastic screens only pull down to waist so the cold air comes in). I really needed a warm jacket on hand. Food is always good. The man on register always seems annoyed at having to tolerate people. The rest of the staff are friendly and helpful.

Great guy playing guitar and singing on the night we dined at the restaurant. He was amazing. Shame there weren’t more people to watch him. I’d take my family & friends to go back just to see him play. So rare to have live music.

Asked for a table in the area near the bar. Was told it was fully booked and there were no tables. The whole time we were there most of those tables were empty. Greeting staff had attitude . All other staff absolutely pleasant.

We have been to The Full Moon on various occasions and were keen to show our guests from the UK how good it is. We were not disappointed. The staff were very friendly, their smiles welcoming. It was busy, yet the service was excellent. The food first class.
We will be returning.
Thank you to all.

The management at The Full Moon Hotel couldn't have been more accommodating for our Sunday lunch reservation. Even though I modified my booking for a dining table a few times and then decided to remain at a high table instead, they were happy to please us in whatever we asked for. The view is glorious, the food scrumptious and the drinks choice is great. Even though there were two birthday parties on the deck that day as well as live music (which was fantastic), we could still have a decent conversation all afternoon. We love this place!

Have visited the venue previously, so knew what to expect. Atmosphere was good, music was wonderful and food was acceptable, with the only detracting issue being that the hot chips were cooked in the same fryer as the seafood, making them taste fishy! I would have thought there to be separate fryers for this?
