Your service staff were extremely disappointing. Lacked a connection with their guests totally disinterested. We had a group of three at our table and Elizabeth decided tuck away chairs at our table setting up for the next day whilst we were still eating and drinking.
Feel free to call to discuss further

The food was wonderful, the staff were very professional. There was overall poor compliance with mask-wearing requirements and the restaurant was rather noisy. It was an incredibly enjoyable evening in a gorgeous setting. I wouldn't return if Queensland's Covid cases got any higher though.

Food was outstanding as always. Just felt rushed to get through the set menu which was a shame. The next course was hitting the table before we could finish the last and we had barely finished dessert when we had to be moved to finish our drinks as the table was rebooked (and yes I understand a 2 hour sitting but this is the first time after many dinners at this beautiful restaurant that I e felt rushed). It was our anniversary dinner which I’d put in the booking and the reminded when I confirmed the booking but it was never mentioned or acknowledged. It the dining experience we had hoped for or experienced previously.

Over priced. We waited over an hour and a half for our meal which was a simple main course. Friend has entree as main which was carelessly plonked on a plate, no garnish. extra for sides. Decor dark and gloomy. Outlook divide. Would not return, and we are not hard to please

We visit every time we fly in from Adelaide. Who wouldn’t want to enjoy the iconic deliciousness of a Moreton bay bug roll whilst watching the sun setting over the ocean. Entertainment from the many surfers catching a wave. The fine dining is an exploration of many flavours enticing the taste buds to request more. Amazing venue, service and anticipation of what delights will appear next to satisfy the palette.

Bit noisy. Excellent location. Food was generally good but more pricey than similar offerings elsewhere. The wine list price is high. Selection not correctly described. eg when it said Bold/full-bodied on the wine list, it's barely medium.

Staff were very attentive and were extremely helpful with the menu. Laura was amazing. Music was great but could be turned down a notch as the waves were nicer to listen to. Just a minor thing but had an amazing night with overall service and quality of food. Thank you I will be back❤️

The food, wine, view and service was top quality and delicious. A little pricey so wouldn’t recommend as drop in every other week but definitely for special occasions.
