Our first time here, fabulous food, service and atmosphere. Apart from the fact the food was seriously delicious, it was HOT. Can't stand cold food that is supposed to be hot. Can't wait to come back.

As the weather was not looking so good, the thought of providing an indoor option for us was created prior to us attending, which was an added bonus.
The staff were attentive, food was great and the wine was nice but over priced, I would still recommend to anyone

This place has a beautiful atmosphere, the sushimi plate was incredible and the brown sugar cheesecake is one you have to try! On the pricey side but you definitely get what you pay for. Perfect for a date night!

Service was atrocious. Food average for the price you pay. Waitress totally forgot a meal we ordered. It was like a nightclub the level of noise. Not value for money at all. I would not recommend this joint.

Staff and very friendly and accommodating. Food is fantastically flavoursome. Oh and did I mention how wonderful the waiting staff are.
My cocktails were sooooo good even though I was doubtful when ordering. So good that I had three different types.

Everything was lovely the food was delicious the one thing I wasn’t happy with was the table was all sticky I had a beautiful white blouse on quite expensive and I couldn’t put my arms or hands down on the table because to touch it they just stuck to the table the tables may need varnishing or they hadn’t been cleaned off with eucalyptus or something it wasn’t a nice experience sitting at the table feeling that feeling put the whole night off for me

Beautiful food, great location, and friendly staff. We sat outside and although windy, was beautiful. Our requests were met with a friendly smile and nothing was too much to ask. Great place for lunch or dinner.

This is always a very pleasant dining experience. The wait staff on this night were very helpful and spaced the food out so we could relax talk eat and drink. The good is always very fresh but not a cheap night if you want to add wine or cocktails to the menu.

Food was good but service was poor. Took a long time for someone to come to take our order. Once order was placed the first 3 dishes came out quickly, then suddenly stopped. After about 30 - 40 min with no more food coming out, we flagged down a waiter and enquired only to be informed we had already been served all of our food and there was nothing else outstanding on our bill. We had ordered another 5 dishes and the waiter did take our order again and food did come out quickly. While he was apologetic, nothing was offered to make up for the inconvenience.

Celebrating a milestone birthday with my friend. Immediately took a soggy umbrella and stored it. Service was excellent. Quick thinking from the waiter to confirm the banquet option could be done for two diners (not the 4 min. Stated in the menu). Cocktails were fab and the food was continuous and delicious. One improvement would give comfortable seats!

Table was dirty and sticky. Two small slices of grilled eggplant for $10 is hardly good value. Good setting but supposed beach view not really panoramic given road and buildings in front. Overall- very overrated.
