    View was beautiful, I'd probably recommend the pub for this alone. Staff very good. Food was OK, chicken parma had coleslaw with no dressing just dry cabbage. Fish and chips was nice, but why not add just a little salad. Beef burger was quite small for the price.

    Yeah Nah. Was good pub food. Beers nice service good. Ordering not so good - just check your order at bar (get a copy of the order) as they didn’t put on the 2 sides we ordered - was okay they followed up - so we all had the eat main meals without any sides. Didn’t even offer even though their stuff up. Also cheeses are waaaaay expensive compared to desserts (really good) think gold is cheaper per ounce lol

    Expected more from the food at the price point they set. Menu was also limited me not seasonally focused. Like a lot of places that have a great location the food finds it hard to meet the standard . No service available

    Loved the renovated coastal design and decor with expansive views of the sea. The menu was broad enough to offer choice to differing tastes an d the food was good. Staff were friendly and accomodating and the service good. The bar ran out of larger which is my choice, otherwise was satisfying. Great ambience and resonably priced. Made for a lovely unfilled day out.

    The restaurant is obviously in the winter season however it was more than fully staffed for the number of guests dining. The service could have been alot more hands on and gained repeat orders on drinks if the staff had been on to it and asked, versus just serving and clearing tables. They certainly did not look run off their feet! This is likely where your QR code system misses as we were hotel guests and were running a bar tab. The staff aside from that provided very good service and were great. There was one server who particularly stood out. A candlelit table would also provide lovely ambience. The after dinner fire place areas which would encourage guests to remain were not serviced well, in terms of surfaces being wiped down and the fireplace in the main dining room was not lit. The reception check in area could do with some ambience to cosy it up, and a beautiful scent whether it be in the air con or with a lovely candle. You have a lovely heritage hotel, however there are attention to detail factors missing to meet the level of service and delivery your hotel should be aspiring to. That said we had a lovely stay. Thank you.

    A most enjoyable lunch with stunning views of Port Phillip Bay on a cold rainy day. The lamb shoulder was not only flavorsome but fell off the bone and the size of the meal was more for 3 than for 2. The traditional chicken parmigiana was exactly how it should be. The waitresses were delightful, friendly and attentive. Exactly what we expect from a pub.

    The food appears to be pre cooked and reheated such as the chicken burger I ordered. The chicken burger bun was also somewhat stale / dry Our last visit was a reheated chicken Parma which was almost cold in the middle. Amazing facility with very polite and efficient staff

    Beautiful views from the upstairs dining area. Unfortunately, the food was very disappointing compared to 5-6 years ago since I last visited. The seafood broil was overpriced and significantly smaller than the photos featured on their Instagram page which was misleading. The fish and chips were decent but the apple and fig dessert was inedible and we received a refund. Recommend going for a beer to enjoy a nice view, but find somewhere else to eat.

    The food was ordinary. More so because it was expensive. Maybe you are paying for the view? But there isn't one at night. A seafood thing to share, they call it a broil. Why? The restraunt has an Italian name and the seafood uses American terminology. We grill mate, broil already makes it sound disgusting. Snow crab from Canada, haven't you heard of low food miles? The choritzo was hard like a huge chunk of salami. An iconic Australian location with mixed international metaphores. Whatever was good about this place was flushed out the heads at the last turn of tide, like the missing beach.

    We liked the fireplace in the bar area. (The fire in the restaurant was out of order.) My partner liked the parma, but I didnt like the mushroom gnocci. Re the gnocci - there wasnt any sauce and there were really hard/crunchy seeds that made it difficult to eat. I felt like I was going to mess up a tooth, so I stopped eating it. No staff came to ask how our meals were. It was just order & pay via the table QR code, then staff deliver items to your table and left. Bit disappointing.

    Booking for 12 Table was not ready No table service, had to take 12 peoples food and drinks order on the app which was not a simple task Food took over an hour to come out Ordered starters they came out after mains One person ordered the fish, someone came around to tell us there was no fish left and to pick something else. They said they would come back, never came back. I went to find them to ask if they can swap to a pizza. Pizza never came out with all the food ordered which meant one person had no food to eat. I approached another waiter and they said they will sort it out. Pizza came out after everyone finished eating. Also I paid on the app for the barramundi which was extra then the pizza. No refund offered. Had 2 kids at the table, which waited over an hour for their food. Drinks took 30-45min to come to table. We placed order over app. Had one upset child as he could not get food or a lemonade. An order for 1x lemonade took 30 min plus. I had to go to bar to ask if they can chase the order. Water jugs on our table we just went to fill them up ourselves from front of bar. I organised this lunch for my 40th and most of the time i was chasing up food, drinks, napkins, forks etc which is not a great experience. We bought our own cake, which we cut up and got plates and cutlery from trolly. There was no service! Really disappointing as it was meant to be a relaxing and enjoyable birthday situation. I understand if you were short staffed but booking was made a week in advance. Food taking over an hour was most disappointing. I dont understand why the entrees could not come out first. There was one lady staff member that gave us 2 bottles of complimentary wine because of all the wait which i appreciate and was a super nice gesture. Honestly would not ever go back for a group booking. Was really stressful and I felt horrible for the people I invited to my birthday. Quite embarrassing. I can easily say it was the worst service I’ve had at any restaurant.
