    Another great experience at Main Wave! The food was sensational…my barramundi was the best and friends loved the veal. Thank you to Vanessa! And we were looked after extremely well by Ami, as usual. Thank you girls for making our celebrations so special, we’ll be back!

    Three of us dined outside under the tree branches - gorgeous setting. Service was so friendly and prompt; we didn't have to try and catch our waitress's eye once. My 93 year old aunt finished her meal with gusto and told us that the crumbed pork was cooked perfectly. My snapper fish and chips was was presented well and tasted even better. My cousin enjoyed her chilli mussels and said they were most tastey (she's a Cordon Bleu trained from many years ago). A most delightful meal in very pleasant settings, set off by the terrific service.

    Great food as usual, Vanessa is a very good chef! We had chilli scallops, Bug Roll and Tempura oysters as starters, all fabulous! We choice the daily special of Seafood Chowder and the sensational Pork Cutlet. Both very good. The boys finished with the crepes, not sure how they could fit it in! If you like Martini’s, I recommend the vodka martini to start 👍

    Excellent restaurant, ambience is wonderful, staff exceptional, good variety of dishes, we had a table of 6 & all were very happy with their choice. Restaurant is at the far end of Main Beach Tedder Ave, so whether dining inside or out was far enough away to be an enjoyable experience., but a few moments walk to centre of Tedder Avenue.

    We arrived at 6:40pm for a nice meal as a couple and it was obvious they were busy so we expected a wait. The wait was excruciating and only after complaining over an hour and fifteen minutes later that we still had no food we were offered 2 pieces of bread to appease us. We then waited a further 20 minutes for the duck and a medium rare reef and beef that actually came out rare / blue. In the mean time watching every other table that came after us be served their meal including a couple having a well done steak. Asked for chips to replace the mash with my steak and was served mash with my steak and the waitress said the chips are coming. Stuffed the food down within minutes and made very clear my disappointment at the extended wait. Was offered no discount on my bill except the free 2 bits of bread. Very disappointed local diner that will no longer be visiting this establishment.

    We had an excellent dinner here for our son’s birthday. I had the veal and the rest of the family had pizza. They had great recommendations and were very friendly. It is also a lovely spot to sit outside in the courtyard and much less noisy and crowded to some other spots around.
