After ding here about 9 months ago, I had to return! It was beautiful then & still is now. Garlic prawns, gluten free were beautiful & to be able to enjoy delectable food with water views is awesome. Highly recommended.

One of the best meals I have had. Large serves and great prices. Desert of Ginger Snap with pistachio creme patisserie was to die for. My mum and sister were too full for desert...until they saw mine! Wish it was near to where I lived..

Hinchinbrook Harbour Waterfront Restaurant and Bar is just that. Waterfrontage with a great menu and friendly service. We like to go for an 'up market' Sunday lunch. There has been live entertainment when we have been recently which makes for a nice touch. Just a...More
