Exceptional service great atmosphere fabulous views- music and background noise not intrusive so able to have a conversation without having to shout or repeat myself during lunch. Wold have liked to see a few more light meals and low carb low gi options on the menu for otherwise perfect score. Will definitely revisit the Dunes 🤗
Pizza's good however extra cheese put on wrong pizza. Staff offered to fix but let it go otherwise would have been waiting longer to eat. Cleanliness excellent staff ensuring everyone QR used and face mask on unless had a reason.
The venue was beautiful only topped by the views. Food was excellent. Have been there many times and will definitely be back.
The dunes menu never disappoints. If you have any food allergies/ intolerances they have you covered. There are separate menus available for gluten free, dairy free, vegan or vegetarian. The staff are super friendly and ready to assist .
Give it a go. You will love it !
Great setting and great service will return
The food was delicious and the service was amazing. Highly recommend
The food and service are always unbelievable. Although it is a little ‘cafe’ vibe for a restaurant. Bad music but fantastic food and amazing staff
Lovely flavoursome food. Well presented.
Disappointed that you don't have local wines on your wine list. You are surrounded by so many amazing wineries
We had a lovely meal with excellent and attentive service.
Such superb attentive polite cheerful staff and lovely food.
We enjoyed the menu choices and were impressed with the presentation and service. The staff were friendly and interested in us. We will definitely come again to enjoy this experience again.
Very efficient staff, nice environment but my breakfast was cold although still nice
We had a beautiful water view after requesting a table by the window when making the reservation through Open Table. Our lunch was excellent except for a few minor details: skimpy cream with the apple and pear crumble and only a fork with which to eat the Portuguese tart. However, we will look forward to returning soon.
Everything was great. This is going to sound so picky and feel free to ignore but I just didn’t like the music
Excellent - staff were really friendly and pizzas were delicious 😋
Great environment. Coffee and food was very good. Service was exceptional and worth coming back for.
Great food,good range of fish, meat & vegetarian. Helpful service & fabulous view. A regular favourite.
Chips were not hot enough and overcooked, so dry in the middle.
Menu was not flexible due to not being able to upgrade entree to main size
Not enough side green salad options
Sugar instead of honey served with a chai latte
Was disappointed as I have enjoyed previous dining here but today the time taken to take our menu and clear our plates from the table was too long.
Beautiful breakfast with the family before our daughter's Christening.
Wonderful, helpful and efficient staff and breathtaking location.

Incredible! We loved our time at The Dunes for a friends very special birthday. The staff were so attentive, lovely and funny. The food and drinks were beyond delicious (especially the beautiful mocktails). The view is unbeatable, best venue on the surf coast.
Food was beautiful and Bailey was awesome so we definitely will be back
Amazing service, great venue, great food. Went back both Saturday and Sunday!
Great down to earth service, good ambience, fabulous views and absolutely delicious food! Will be back many more times to come!!!
Very quick response to query regarding coeliac diet... Helpful and welcoming. Waiters friendly and quick to respond to requests.Engaged well with grandchildren.
Good delicious. View always wonderful. Ambience bright and spacious
The customer service towards allergies was outstanding and the food was just as outstanding, a beautiful evening
Had grain fed steaks /broccolini and chips special of the day. Not as good as could have been, also meal should have been hotter.
Lovely service and food. A really friendly waiter and prompt service.
Popped in for some coffee, breakfast and to do a little work on my laptop. They were swift, polite and seated me in a great position to accommodate my work. Friendly and fantastic staff. Highly recommend
Do yourself a favour The Dunes is a must if you are wanting a pizza, it is as authentic as they come and of highest quality. Staff are AMAZING and very friendly.
Great spot for a relaxing lunch.. attentive to everyone needs including dietary issues ( was asked 3 times so wondered where the the first 2 responses went?).
Good was delicious and well presented with generous servings. Highly recommended.
Love coming to the Dunes. Atmosphere and food great, service spot on. This time however we had a booth near the door and it was almost permanently open with people coming and going and the breeze made it particularly cold.
Great service amazing views wonderful food - something for everyone
Great venue - will be even better during the longer days when you can look at the action and the ocean. Staff are excellent and food is very good !
Excellent starters and mains and desserts were absolutely delicious. Good volume inside, not too loud. Outstanding service by staff. We will definitely be returning.
Food was delicious, especially the trout and pork belly. Service also great!!
Great food, great location
Delicious meal! Loads of energetic staff. Overall a fabulous meal post surf. We'd highly recommend it.
The only complaint I have was that it was a little too salty for my taste. However, that’s just me. I’m used to under seasoned food so what I think is salty is more so than likely perfectly seasoned.
Great, views, fantastic food and friendly staff.
