Sandstone Point Hotel, just a short drive north from Brisbane, offers a beautiful location at which to enjoy contemporary, globally-inspired meals with something delicious for every type of taste. The chargrilled garlic prawn skewers with lemon mayonnaise and the slow-cooked chili pork belly with shaved apple and watercress make sharable and taste bud-warming starters. Some of Sandstone Point Hotel Ôs specialty mains include the grilled chicken supreme wrapped in prosciutto and stuffed with creamy brie, the angus striploin steak slathered in creamy garlic sauce and the sand crab and scallop mousse lasagna. More casual fare, such as the Point slider plate with a barbecue pulled pork, barbecue chicken, beef with horseradish mayo and brie and avocado sliders and the spiced lamb pizza with cucumber, mint and spinach yogurt, are also popular.

Sandstone Point Hotel also has a full kids' menu, making it an excellent dining choice for the whole family.

Most of the food was lovely, however my chicken was very strange tasting and made myself a little unwell in tummy. My partner finished my meal and he felt unwell too.

We love seafood so booked in for Crab Month. The Seafood Heaven at $110 was a little disappointing. Lots of ice to fill the tub with some crab on top. Everything else was lovely but I just think we may have ordered the wrong dish. The Seafood Tier was also a little underwhelming. We loved the Seafood Towers down at the Oyster Shed last month, so we will definitely be back.

Hi there, Thank you for the constructive feedback, our Seafood Heaven is generally a hit but definitely valid feedback that I will pass onto our team of chefs. We re so glad to hear you enjoyed your previous experience down at the Oyster Shed and hope to welcome you back for another 'cracking' dish before Crab Month wraps up. Kind regards

Food was great and considering how busy it was it didn't take as long as we thought is was going to. Service was good, the only thing is the staff need to communicate a bit more. Someone would come ask us how everything was then within a few minutes someone else would come ask us. But all in all, we left happy

We had to wait just over an hour from when we ordered our food to when it was served. This is too long for anyone but particularly when children are involved. It also makes it very difficult to stick to your stated "2 hour limit" for the booking.

We strive to advise our guests about estimated wait times at the time of ordering, we will always try to ensure that you have ample time to eat and enjoy your experience in our bistro.

Wouldn't recommend if you have special needs or requirements. Outside table booked prior for medical reasons and only due to us calling multiple times and finally getting a call back an hour before did we know they weren't going to give us one despite the fact that there was a free table outside the whole time we were there. Instead we were seated in busiest part of restaurant, steak came out rare not medium and we weren't informed burgers could be purchased at bar after 5pm so my daughter was disappointed. Birthday booking was ignored so ruined occassion, staff rude. Just unpleasant experience all round

The venue is great and we were looking forward to the meal (lunch). We order a main that came with chips and an expensive Salmon dish along with a serve of onion rings. Unfortunately the chips and onion rings which all came out with the mains were cold. We felt the salmon for the price ($36) was a very small serve. A bit disappointed but we will give it another go in future I’m sure

We felt a bit rush considering there where a lot of empty tables. We had not finished our starters when our mains arrived.. great to see plates cleared. Very fast.
Beer was good Wine was good.
Went for a walk atmosphere down to jetty was great.
Left full and happy...
would do again after I save up... spent $200 2 people a bit rich.

We are regulars here and have always loved everything here. I was a little disappointed this time. It was not busy but the staff were hard to find. I had lunch with a girlfriend and her meal was lovely. Mine was disappointing. The bun was dry and the meat pattie was so small ....the menu has changed and the burger was less than good. We were seated inside and asked if they could open the doors next to our table as it was so hot there. The waitress had to ask permission and didn't come back. I went and found another waitress and told her that we wanted to move outside. She helped us relocate. It was much better. I don't normally complain but this really surprised me. Hopefully it will be better on our next visit.

Great venue to sit, a cold beer and watch the view. Food and bar service was slow and poor. Too much chat behind the bar anyway. Food, especially the gluten free pizza was gluggy and totally covered in BBQ sauce, I could not really find the pulled pork. Found the salami though. Should have stuck to the steak.
Overall it was a great place to have a good time.

Good set up and design.
Food is way over priced for the quality.
Pavlova was hard a rock and terrible with the smallest bit of fruit. Feel ripped off buying that.

I took my parents for lunch from Brisbane and we had a lovely experience.
The outlook is lovely and the service is great.

We ordered a mix of meals from seafood to chicken, but make sure you save room for the desserts.
You get a table number and order at the counter, and your meals are delivered to you. We had staff also check in our meals, of which we were all happy with. There are many different areas, but we dined in the restaurant. It is well worth a trip from Brisbane to enjoy the hotel.
