    Excellent food (my barramundi, friends' linguine seafood and the fish and chips, as well as the desserts - beautifully presented too all round), great service and lovely setting...a wonderful find.

    As usual our expectations were met and we enjoyed the Seafood Linguini which was packed with seafood and followed this excellent with affogato. A lovely lunch in pleasing surroundings.

    Tried this restaurant for the first time with family and can say that I was not at all disappointed. The experience was beyond expectation that its impossible to find fault in it. The service we received such as the prompt attentiveness and friendliness of staff, the size portion and deliciousness of our food dishes , the view of the venue was just amazing. Will most definitely be back again sooner.

    Whilst our food was okay the service we were treated with was far from acceptable. To be rushed out at 9.30pm on a Saturday evening was appalling. Unlike any other restaurant, we were offered desserts as our main meal plates were been taken away with no follow up, nor were we offered coffees. When we did ask for coffees at 9.15pm we were told no as the machine had been cleaned. We spent over $200 at your restaurant which you wont be seeing again. Very disappointed patrons!!

    Great views. Very good quality food, not quite excellent but close. Good friendly service. The side for my main was served with my entree for some reason, when I mentioned, it was taken back and came back later not quite as hot as it probably should have been.

    The overall experience was good and my wife and i generally go to waves once a year for special occasions. The food was great, especially the entree of calamari.. The sparkling wine was not overly cold which is paramount to enjoy. I noticed a tradie working on site, so maybe there was a problem with something electrical. Otherwise i would always say to friends or family go give it a try. Andrew.

    Overall, it was lovely The menu is small, temporarily reduced due to staffing issues - which is a shame - but understandable at the moment The service was great except for one staff member - which again is a shame, because we’ve always had perfect service in the past - but I guess given it’s so hard to get good staff, this may happen!

    I am looking forward to returning to try more dishes. some being delivered to other tables looked very nice. My barramundi was excellent. The service by the waitresses was also very good. Maybe the lights could be turned down a little bit and the background music balanced a little bit. The music seemed to be at the other end of the room. Overall a very good experience. Will go back again.
