Stunning food and great customer service. Tumeric potatoes were a real show stealer.

The food was amazing. Such unique flavour combinations that really work! Relaxing location. The "Just Feed Me" menu gives the meal a fun vibe.

Restaurant had been recommended to us, so we were a bit disappointed by the meal we had. It started off good, then the next dish was Ok, but not outstanding. Not a huge choice. Last dish Prawn Pad Thai was not particularly nice at all.

Would not go back. Location was good however.

I am a regular diner at Shorehouse and have celebrated Wedding Anniversaries, Birthdays and special occasions with small & large groups regularly in the past.
Last night my husband & I took 2 visitors who have never been to Shorehouse and was excited to show them your great restaurant. We arrived earlier than our 6pm booking and were seated at a lovely table on the deck. The waitress explained the Chef's set menu on Mondays which I honestly wasn't aware of (I am familiar with the Feedme set menu). I was advised by the waitress that when booking on the 'OpenTable' that it is mentioned. I checked today on OpenTable and noticed it is written but isn't highlighted at the start of the booking and only after you book and scroll to the 2nd page is it obvious.
Our entree's arrived within 5 minutes of us sitting down, well before our drinks arrived. We would have liked time to enjoy a pre dinner drink.
The mains arrived and the size of the chicken stirfry was small for 4 people with very little chicken with the majority vegetables. The 2nd main dish of pork was lovely. The rice bowl was medium size. Overall the value for $160 was poor.
We left the restaurant underwelmed.

Great food and atmosphere guys. The only small complaint we have is that it's the middle of winter for us North Queenslander's and the evening breeze was quiet cold and all the ceiling fans were on flat out!!

Not good value for money. Scallops were half scallops, I’d expect them to be whole not looking like they were cut in half! Sticky rice was undercooked. Mushroom spring rolls didn’t appear to contain mushrooms.

The Uber rode back to the hotel was our highlight.

Love the food, Love the cocktails, I feel that when the restaurant is so full an extra body to help with turnover and orders would be helpful, though this was less important after my first cocktail.....
Thank you for a lovely night.

The food was exceptional. The cocktail I had was very nice. HOWEVER It was way too noisy however, which impeded on the quality of the experience. The waitress was not attentive- only saw her once for drink order and once for food order. Which is okay if you only want one drink…. But most people don’t so fix that.

Did ask for outside dining, booked 2 weeks well in advance and did write down my request . . Arrived to be told first come first served .?? Did not have to explain a hearing medical condition . When we were eating there was space outside and feel that we could have been accommodated . Food , service exceptional.

It was amazing. I wasn’t expecting the shared, tapas style but I loved it. We had four mains, two sides and two drinks each (4 soft, 2 beers) and it was just shy of $150. For a restaurant , very reasonable. We were full and ended up only snacking at dinner time and we waited until 7pm! Well worth the money. We’ll be back again - for different meals next time.
