Paper Daisy - Halcyon Cabarita Beach Ratings and Reviews
Late change to booking was no problem. Meant we had to have the set menu though - not a la carte. And group now included a vegetarian. But set menu had only one vego option, so kitchen rustled up some alternatives with no notice. Very impressed on several levels.
We had high expectations as it was recommended by some friends.
The waitress we had on the day wasn't very pleasent and she must of had a chip on her shoulder, there was no smile or any happiness with her. Some of the meals were great like the coconut prawns. My wife's wagyu dish was dismal as she ordered it medium rare and it was still raw and there were only three pieces of meat on her plate the size and thickness of a 50c coin.
Also when we get told that there were no oysters because they haven't arrived but see another table get them as after they ordered after us. Had very unhappy guest with us when they saw that.
This is the second time to Paper Daisy, the 1st was for lunch and I have to say lunch was a far better experience than dinner. At $110 per person for dinner it was really hit and miss, they messed up our entree's and dessert's. Getting 1 wrong for the entree and missing 1 dessert completely, yes they fixed it but really poor for a restaurant with this sort of reputation. I could have received that at Marty's across the road, the difference they don't put themselves into this class level. The bar staff was fabulous, as was the waitress. The kitchen let them down on this occasion. I came away feel a little ripped off by the $150 per head bill.
I have been waiting to have a dining experience at HHouse for 18 months as we live in SA. The setting, styling and service was all that I hoped-quality and classy. The menu held enough variety to make selection difficult which is always a good sign. We had an unacceptably long wait for our main course and were reassured and placated with complimentary drinks so no real harm done. Very worthwhile dining.
We came here for a late lunch during a weekday and the food, ambience and service did not disappoint. I was a bit apprehensive as we had the kids with us but was pleasantly surprised that they already had a kids menu (with plenty of healthy options). Highly recommended.
Our Cornish waitress and Japanese sommelier were lovely, the setting and ambience outstandingly beautiful and our expectations for this special evening of incredible cuisine were high on arrival at 6:30. By 8pm my post rugby match 15 year old son suggested we abandon the evening and head home for some toast as nothing had appeared in the way of a main course. We were getting up to leave at 830 when the mains arrived -but by then it was a complete anticlimax. We were all finished by 9- the only thing that stood out was the lovely flavoursome squid starter....and the desert of strawberry gum meringue some hours later. Poorly paced kitchen service - what would they say on Masterchef Chef Devlin?
We both felt the food was a little too fussy. The oysters with macadamia milk were disappointing - they would have been better without the milk - the combination wasn't right. We felt that the food was so lovely and fresh but was ruined by being too overdone.
First time at this restaurant which was highly recommended by friends The two of us thoroughly enjoyed the dining experience and it lived up to expectations. Food and Service was Fabulous and the Decor fresh, light and inviting.
The menu was a delight and everything on there was tempting, making it difficult to choose. Pipis, Coal Roasted Fish, Wagyu Beef and Paperbark Schnapper were our choices followed by a serve of Strawberry Gum Meringue . Yum!
This place was a delight. 😊
Highly recommended. Fantastic food, great wine selection at very reasonable prices (there are of course expensive options if you want them). Food is excellent in every way - the best ingredients, creatively cooked and presented but while still allowing the food to speak for itself, use of local and native ingredients, generous portions. Highlights were the paperbark fish and the citrus tart but all dishes we had were excellent. Service is very good. Ambience is excellent.
