    Can’t wait to return. The view of the sunset was spectacular as we arrived. The food was delicious, beautifully presented and each course arrived promptly. Our choices were the barramundi with prawns, spicy calamari and pumpkin stuffed chicken breast - all highly recommended. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. Give Waves a try - you won’t be disappointed

    My sisters and I had a wonderful time, beautiful place, small but cosy. Staff were lovely and the food was amazing. The seafood was delicious and plenty of seafood in the serving. Ambiance was great as sitting by the window and on the beach. We will certainly be back and also bring more family and friends. Thank you it was my sister’s birthday and a perfect lunch.

    It was a birthday celebration so a special evening. Started with some mixed entrees. The garlic cob was the best, its been sometime since lve had such delicious Garlic bread. Didnt have the crab bao but got rave reviews from guests. Last of arachini balls best again for a long time. The mains what can we say: a selection of 5 different ordered and no complaints. Great servings, fresh and fabulous on the pallete. Really enjoyed our experience definitely going back. I was a bit hesitant to book as last experience a year back was not the best. Highly recommend. Staff were amazing! Thank U .

    I attended with a group of friends and had a great night. Food was great and the service was great. We enjoyed the ambience and we will be back. Look forward to being able to use the outside balcony in the summer months. The only issue is not being able to get a booking time earlier due to being expected to leave within 2 hours. Whilst I understand why, there should be other options on non busy evenings such as this one. Save having to spend a few hours at another venue waiting for our time slot. The option needs to b available on line. Otherwise great evening. Thanks

    Four of us had a lunch at waves. Seafood linguine, barramundi and 2 x chicken parkas. All agreed their meal was delicious. Service was good and always friendly. Took a bit longer to come but we'll worth the wait. I had the linguine and it was so flavoursome. Good value too. I would recommend highly

    We normally attend Saturday nights but this night we went on a Friday night. We seemed to wait for 20 minutes or more before we got served for a drink. Sorry, but the service was extremely slow on the night we went. There was just 1 table with 3 children and they were so noisy it was ridiculous. They should have been asked to quiet it down just a little bit, the rest of the people there couldnt even hear themselves speak because of that 1 table. This restuarant, in my opinion, is not a family restuarant, so this is where children should be seen, not heard. Maybe Waves should have some crayons and colouring in for the kids to do to keep them occupied.

    Our lunch at Waves was amazing. The staff were great and food was amazing. I would highly recommend this restaurant to other people. Our only concern was that it was quite cold in the restaurant especially when people were coming in and going out onto the deck.

    I had selected what meal I was going to have online well before I got there. I arrived early and was kept waiting whilst the the young lady attended to something on the computer. I was seated, at no time during the booking or the seating process was I able to select a window seat. Not much to see out the window at this time of year however if I was to return I would want that as an option. Staffing was at too low a level to allow proper customer service. Those staff servicing were overrun. Potato scallops on the menu to me says potato not sweet potato. had I been aware of this I would not have ordered the dish. to counteract the sweetness the chef/cook had over compensated with a more than liberal application of white pepper. The steak was a beautiful piece of meat and lovingly cooked to rare. the garlic butter should have been room temperature when added to the meat rather than chilled as the meat was not hot enough to soften it never alone melt it to the sauce consistency for it to reach the greens on the plate. Wine: We chose the only Malbrough region sauvignon blanc which held little to no characteristics expected of the wine of that region and closer resembled lemon water.
