Fantastic view, a beautiful full moon across the bay. Staff were friendly and food was great (best peppercorn sauce ever). Great to have the free courtesy bus too.

Had to stand in long queues to get served for drinks. Should be table service surely.
Food was nice but could have been better.

Had many a visit on our holiday.

This visit we went especially for the smokehouse menu and we were not disappointed.

Excellent meal! Deffo worth a visit over the weekend.

Staff always on point and great venue.

Make to most of the courtesy bus which will pick you up in town and drop you off both to Northerlies and back again.

We don't know if this was an off night..
Pasta dish had an awful tinny tomato taste with overcooked ingredients.so couldn't eat. Arancini balls had to be abandoned after one regretful bite
Beans side OK
Mashed potato side salty and possibly instant.. Couldn't taste the advertised herbs
Worst of all the two cocktails we're horrible tasting.. Left it all

Parents should have more control of noisy children who were also running around. Could have had more bar staff, especially when mixing cocktails. That’s all I think could be improved. Thanks, would recommend to friends!

Forgot our order. Asked a number of times however kept getting told it will be 5 minutes, it’s the next order. No one actually checked. It took 2 hours and the kids had a big meltdown in the car. Sorry to say this but it was terrible.

Usually great, however very understaffed and busy. As a result, the quality of the food suffered. The seafood platter was missing items, no ice buckets available for wine. Tables were not cleared for over an hour. Location is great.
