Asked for a table outside but seated inside. Free tables outside. Music was obnoxious and so loud we could hold a conversation. Asked if we could sit on the lawn told yes but no food - every other lawn table had food. Eventually ordered food and took it outside like everyone else despite the terrible attitude of the staff. Not impressed and unlikely to make the trip out there again.

We are regulars at Sandstone. The food is always first rate and the service wonderful. The staff are so friendly and helpful every time we go there. Special mention of Lorraine, Maddie and Lee in this regard however that is not a sleight on the rest of the staff as they are all great.
Highly recommend this venue.

I anticipated a more special night but it wasn’t up to par. When our platter arrived, we weren’t given any plates and were told “there are no clean big plates left, here, have these small ones instead”. Wish we could’ve stayed longer on better terms but it felt spoiled overall. Disappointing

All staff were very friendly and happy to be there. The food was excellent value and very fresh and delicious. We will definitely be back

We almost lost our table when we got up to order at the counter. Staff had cleared our water glasses and clean cutlery and were cleaning the table ready to give our it to another group. If you are going to make people get up and line up to order at least make sure they still have a table to come back to.

We come here often and last night was a disappointment. We had a table outside and after multiple request they couldn’t provide us with a heater. Normally the food we order is great but again yesterday the meat was dry and the steak rubbed with olive oil???

We love the ambiance and the playground is amazing for the kids.

Hopefully next time we will have a heater and better food.

Good evening Rudy, We're sorry to hear only now that you did not enjoy your meals on this occasion, as always let us know when dining so we correct any issues you have with your meals. Due to current COVID dining restrictions it is almost impossible for us to cater to everyone's seating preferences, and we could only do our best by reallocating you to a table underneath a wall heater. We hope you can join us again soon as you were a pleasure to look after, The team at Sandstone Point Hotel

We had poor service from the moment we arrived. The lady was rude, not hospitable, she kept talking to the people around her instead of serving us. We didn’t have one person come to our table to clear it through out the evening, we ordered a number of meals and drinks and the small table was overfull so we had to move our used plates and cups to the empty table beside us. It was poor service that let the evening down!

Good evening Mitza, Thank you for dining with us and for providing some feedback about your experience. We most definitely serve our restaurant menu to our outdoor terrace and deck allocated restaurant tables. These areas are in high demand and tend to book out up to 3 months in advance, so we would recommend definitely getting in early if you want a prime spot! Our other food outlets cater to all other areas of the venue. We hope to see you on our terrace soon! The team at Sandstone Point Hotel

Having dined at Sandstone Point Hotel on several occasions ourselves, we are happy to confirm the high standard of the venue has not deteriorated in any way. Our four friends who dined with us were extremely impressed. The six of us often meet somewhere in between our different homes and are content with the usual standard of ordinary Bistro dining however....the experience for them at Sandstone Point Hotel kind of 'blew them away'. Highly recommend the venue and....take your appetites with you.....great quality AND quantity on your plate. If you share the seafood platter of hot and cold for two, you will be totally happy with the value.
