    The young lady behind the bar could not be more helpful, she was amazing making is comfortable as it was a cold night putting blinds down lighting fire and putting next to us, she even offered us blankies when we moved to couch. The food was good but service was better

    We bought tickets to the Aus Day VIP upstairs at sunset bar. On booking it said table for 4 and our booking was for 6.45pm but when we got there, there were no tables or chairs left. Hardly any food. Next year if your going to hold the same thing maybe allocate the tables for each booking and have the name for that booking on the table. Was very very disappointing. If your going to have times allocated then seats need to be allocated and reserved too. Also parking should have been reserved for the VIP tickets too. Parking was atrocious. Other than that it was an ok night. Will definitely go back to sunset bar for a drink with friends but not sure about Aus Day unless there’s better set up.

    Disappointing... taking visitors from out of town - was told we may have to sit downstairs due to 'plumbing issues'. However, there was a function we definitely had to sit downstairs & then we were seated right next to the only other group rather than spaced apart. Staff were present, food was served quickly but pizza ingredients weren't as stated. Will be thinking twice about returning.

    It’s such a pity that this beautifully located restaurant serves such a bad quality of food. It’s ok there is no table service and you have to order at the bar. But the food was so so bad, even the pizzas where disgusting, which in my opinion is pretty crazy for simple food. The location is absolutely wonderful with amazing sea view, but the food made me to never come back again

    I ordered a green chicken curry and got a beef, not 100% sure if it was green curry and also there was way way to many chickpeas. It was a very cold night and it didn’t feel like any heating was on in the dining room.

    Greeting poor. Not asked about booking or shown table. Needed to ask for drinks list & menus at the bar. Some cocktails unavailable. Had to wait to find out what the specials were. Food was good. No dessert menu, staff member did find out what was available. No coffee available, machine broken? Upstairs & machine had been cleaned down stairs. Disappointing

    We arrived with friends who were visiting from Perth and the evening was cold wet and very windy !! We had the Sunset bar to ourselves! The staff that were on were pleased to see us and made our time very enjoyable, great venue cosy and warm inside and cant wait to go back on a sunny day. thanks for staying open and see you soon.

    Such a beautiful setting. And some yummy mocktails. Unfortunately the food was really disappointing. We got some pizzas and they tasted like they were heated from a box. Such a shame. Would go back for a drink. But not to eat.
