We called in here on a busy Friday night. Although we had to sit outside we were pleased to have done so - inside was very crowded and noisy. Also, the view over the harbour was great. Staff were attentive and helpful. Food was delivered reasonably promptly considering how busy they were. Two of us a fish dish, which was good. The other had the vegetarian lentil patties, which were pretty tasteless and rather stodgy. As others have commented, vegetarian choices are limited. Worth the visit for the view and good service. Food could do with a little improvement.

Loved everything about this place - the food, the service and the atmosphere. Would never have picked it from the road, so was grateful some local friends recommended the 4 of us go there. It's now on our list for next year.

Had dinner there with a couple of local friends during a business trip and I'll definitely be back on my next visit. The service staff were polite and enjoyed a laugh and the food was DEVINE! Definately recommend.

We stopped in here for a small bite to eat after our Dolphin Seafari. We just had the soup and bruschetta. The soup was Thai pumpkin, GF and extremely tasty. The staff were pleasant and very helpful.
Has a few memorabiila from ACDC drummer who owns the restaurant.
