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.

The atmosphere was lovely. The opportunities to entertain everyone in the family was in one place. Great playground, animals, plants, soccer, music etc It felt like being on a mini holiday with the beautiful water view

We ordered 4main meals and 1 kids meal. 2 main meals were bought out about 50 mins after we ordered. The other 2 main meals came out about 30 minutes later. The kids meal came 5 minutes after that. Nuggets and chips took 85 minutes to cook???? One of the main meals was the seafood tier. The fresh seafood was amazing. The cooked seafood was over cooked and soggy. The lamb shank pie was great and the battered barra was great. The nuggets were over cooked - not much chicken was in them as they were dry and crunchy. The food is overpriced. I have heard so many great comments about how wonderful the food is. It’s a pity we didn’t get to experience that. The hotel itself was amazing and a great location. Would I come back for the food - I don’t think so for the price we paid it was so disappointing. Thank you

Was a wonderful first experience at Sandstone Point Hotel. The staff for very accommodating for my elderly grandparents and were quick to help with any issues. Was a tad expensive but that’s what you pay for top quality food. Not one of us had any complaints regarding the food. It was top notch! The kids had a fabulous time playing in both the indoor and out door play areas but were a little disappointed about the petting zoo not being open. They still enjoyed them self nonetheless. Overall, we had a fabulous time and will definitely be back!

Food is amazing, highly recommend the seafood platter and the mussles. Service was prompt but it is a bistro so minimal but efficient. Location is amazing and plenty for families to do. Beers on tap are great although fair walk from the restaurant and no table service.

Expensive. Nice atmosphere. Nicely decorated. Food is a little above normal hotel food. Expensive for what it is. Menu hasn’t changed. Chicken Snitzel prices at $28??? I don’t think so. We will try other places before going back there.

Really enjoyed my Chicken Parmy and would totally return. Was a little disappointed when it came time for ordering and it was 'Cash Only' sales as the EFTPOS was down, yet funnily enough the EFTPOS machines on site still were able to be used. Apart from that, it was a lovely dining experience, the ambience and styling of the place is just lovely also.

We have been to sandstone point three times and every time the food is delicious service good and the location and ambience absolutely awesome. My only complaint would be the cake. We ordered two slices for the table to share and both (especially the salted caramel chocolate) tasted like fridge. The flavours from the rest of the cabinet fully polluted the flavour of the cake. It was not a nice finish to an otherwise perfect meal.

This is the first time we dined here during a concert , we have been to the restaurant many times and to many concerts. The service was very fast and the kitchen was very easy and helpful in accommodating a few minor changes to our order. We were very pleased with everything-especially the prompt service during a concert and the food was really good -the only complaint was the chicken in the Parmy was a little thin and stringy and not enough sauce ...but everything else was great and we again left happy and satisfied! Thank you for the great service We will be back !

Parking was a breeze with plenty of decent sized parks to choose from. From the time we ordered our meals to when they arrived at out table was minimal for a busy Sunday. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Some of our party were not able to attend so we checked if we could move to a smaller table to allow other patrons the option of a larger table. We were able to move which permitted our group to be able to interact easily without having to talk louder to be heard. Overall we had a lovely brunch which made for a memorable day and we are already planning our next get together there.

Food was tasty and a good range however prices were a little above where they should have been based on food quality. Fish and chips came with shoestring fries - highly irregular and disappointing. The outdoor area is so great though, my toddler loved it so might consider not eating in the overpriced restaurant and instead eating outside next time

Quiet relaxed atmosphere. Very good food. Seafood treble plus 1 Doz Oysters natural very adequate for two adult males. The site and outlook were fanatastic. Really appreciated no music played, people did not have to raise voices to be heard, could talk normally as if in own home. I am sure this contributed to the tranquillity. Keep it up. Save the noise for the outdoor rock performances. Bring on Jimmy Barnes.

Love this venue. Only let down this time was the Pork Belly special was on the small side for a main and not worth $32. Also the toilets require more attention, particularly during busier times.
