Very good food and excellent service from the staff. Lovely ambience. Only negative was being placed right next to a couple who were talking quite loudly and at the time of our arrival there was no-one else in restaurant. Overall good and would go back again.

The portions were slightly on the small side but adequate. Veges were cooked to perfection.The porterhouse and salmon were cooked well but perhaps lacked that extra ‘zest’. The ambiance was fantastic.

Fantastic meal in a lovely location. I had the barramundi with a macadamia nut crust and it was delicious. The other guests also raved about their choices. Waitresses were lovely and very attentive. We sat outside and it was a such a relaxed setting with the fairy lights shining and enjoying the peacefulness of the bay. A definite do again restaurant for a special occasion.

Thanks for being such a beautiful venue for my parents 50th wedding anniversary lunch. It suited our whole family from 3 to 73 years old, with excellent food and a lovely view. Our waitress was very kind and understanding of our family’s needs. Perfect lunch out

Lovely venue if you actually want to enjoy your food and the company of those you are dining with. The staff are wonderful and the courthouse has a simple elegance that doesn’t require black tie but nonetheless makes you feel special.

We enjoyed an absolutely amazing lunch at The Courthouse yesterday. The service by Piper and Taylor was outstanding. Nothing was too much for them. The food served was absolutely delicious and such good value for money. Our definite go to restaurant when anywhere near the Bay.

A great night as usual. There only thing I can pick on and maybe it's just me, I don't understand the onion rings with fillet mignon. The meat was cooked to perfection but the onion rings just don't do it for me.

The building is a lovely converted old court house, right on the water.
Service was brusque as there only appeared to be two front of house staff for the entire service.
Food was good, but nothing exceptional, certainly not “fine dining” - everyone enjoyed their food , which is always a good thing at these prices.
The pianist appeared to be bored witless and played (what sounded like) the same piece a number of times..

Booking under a fake name to avoid detection, my partner in crime and I successfully infiltrated the courthouse to break our friends out of prison, only to realise we were at a restaurant... Oops!
Making the best of the situation we sat down and ordered some dinner and had a great night.

The Filet Mignon I ordered was cooked to perfection as was my wife's King Henry Lamb Shank. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals once again from the Courthouse Restaurant! The benchmark for service had been set from our previous visit which was impeccable. Unfortunately this time our food waiter was not really engaged with the diners but our compliments must go to the Chef for an excellent meal!

A Long awaited smug married couples date.
We could not be happier with our meal and the service. We new nothing of the iconic features and really enjoyed the antiques and the piano playing gently in the corner. Beautiful! 🙏 Thank you. We will be back.

Great atmosphere, beautifully decorated. Food was good but nothing special, especially for the price. Wait staff were quite inexperienced which did not seem to match the ambiance and fine dining experience they seem to be charging for. It was nice but probably won’t rush back.
