    The photos on the website does not reflect the food that is served. Lamb ribs inedible, so overcooked. XO prawns were cooked prawns sautéed in XO, not green prawns.

    We enjoyed our meal but they didn’t have first choice available so that was disappointing. Food was good though and great outdoor area suitable for kids. It was a windy day and one of the umbrellas went flying off one of the tables and the waitresses outside just walked away from it and didn’t help. Overall we enjoyed our drinks and meal sat outside on the deck

    After looking forward to this visit for quite some time, I was extremely disappointed except for food. It is tired and run down. I didn't realise it was more like a bar/nightclub than a restaurant. Very loud music when we entered so we asked to sit outside. I had 3 teenagers with me and they felt uncomfortable in the surrounds with loud group were sat right next to us with all other tables free. We basically ate and ran. I was charged $25 for 3 soft drinks and when we told head staff he was more than accommodating to rectify. Playground for kids is a waste. This venue could be so much more.

    Beyond amazing service at Ocean Beach Pavilion. They went above and beyond to make sure our group’s three dogs were comfortable, I’ve never experienced better service. The food was so tasty, and large servings as well. Highly recommend

    It was terrible. When we arrived, we told them we had a booking and were told we didn’t need one and we could sit anywhere. After sitting for 10 minutes and not being asked if we wanted a drink or given a menu, my wife went and asked a staff member. She was told she could get a drink at the bar and that the food menu was not available, but if she wanted she could order fish and chips.

    Pretty avg food for the price. Setting was nice but it’s run by teenagers it seems and much of the clientele was also very young. 18 yr olds vaping in the children’s playground…. All in all it’s cute for kids but otherwise pretty disappointing.

    I booked for dinner in the restaurant with my partner and when we arrived we were told they weren’t sitting anyone in the restaurant that evening and we had the choice of sitting outside in the cold wind or inside the bar area which is super loud. Both were really poor options. Once we were seated they said the food could be ordered off the QRCode on the table. Once scanned the menu only came up with drinks. We went to the bar to ask for a menu and was especially told to use the wrong code…. Which only had the drinks menu on it. We finally got the paper menu and ordered. Food came out dry and unpleasant to eat. Safe to say with three strikes I will not be going back.

    Although the service was good, we found that the food and drinks were overpriced for what we got. The main concern of our group was that the vegetarian received meat dumplings instead of vegetarian, luckily another member of our group decided to try them first and realised and alerted staff, who were very apologetic. In addition to this, some of the dumplings were dry around the seam. The beer prices also caught us off guard with the cost of a schooner equalling the cost of a pint at surrounding restaurants. All in all, the location and set up looked like it would be a good vibe for a few bevs, but the price of food and drinks was not reflective of the quality of product.

    Big thank you to the staff there who went above and beyond to make sure I was able to eat something with my allergen requirements. They got the kitchen to make me a meal specifically for my requirements which turned out to be spectacular! Recommend coming here for everything but the friendly staff especially!

    Exceptional service from Cooper and our cocktail maker, friendly and welcoming was an enjoyable experience. Cocktails were lovely and strong and food came out nice and hot and tasty. Perfect for couples or families with a bonus sand play area for children far enough away not to disturb any one but still within eyesight. cannot wait to return on a hot summers nights. highly recommend

    Less than 50% of menu available. Can’t run a restaurant without food! No apologies for poor quality food. Calamari salad with no calamari. Chicken pad Thai with 3 pieces of chicken. One of the worst meal experiences I have ever had. This restaurant won’t last long.

    Outstanding service. Food in general was great however the dumplings were average. Portions are good and drink prices and variety is more than adequate. Could had been a bit warmer inside but this could be attributed to the evening as it was bloody cold outside. All in all we will be back and I would recommend it to all.

    We found the owner/staff to be helpful in seating our party at a suitable table that would be comfortable for us all. We were compensated for a wait for the table with a complimentary food item, which was a pleasant surprise. The waiting staff were attentive and enthusiastic and the food was plentiful, well presented and tasty. Free wine and coffee included with the set 3 course lunch was a nice touch. The rear play area was perfect for the little one in our group to get rid of some excess energy and work up an appetite. The owner was personable and friendly in chatting to us, without being overly intrusive.

    We ate inside the old house “Ginger Girl” not the actual pavilion. It was beautiful. The food was great and the staff were just so lovely. We couldn’t have been more pleased. It was Easter Sunday and we were prepared for it to be noisy and to have to wait. It was the complete opposite . We loved it and will definitely be back
