Me and my friends had dinner and it was overall just a perfect experience. The staff was so friendly and attentive. I had lamp shoulder (recommendation of our lovely waitress) and it was delicious! Thanks again to their excellent chef! Very cosy and exquisite atmosphere. If you ever go to Palm Beach (which you should because it is beautiful) you... More

Waitress rushed us to take our order and then we waited for 1.5 hours for our food. We kept asking where our food was and the response was always that they were checking, no apology. It was a birthday celebration so it was unfortunate it was tainted by us having to follow up on our food all the time. The... More

We had a fantastic lunch here my partner said the best scallops entree she's had in a long time my snapper was excellent also. Aside from the great food the decor could do with a little upgrade the tables starting to look a bit worn but overall a great recommendation😀

Four of us went there for lunch and really enjoyed the food. The service was good and friendly admittedly it was mid week so the restaurant was a little quiet. The crushed avocado salad, King fish sashimi and fish and chips of the day were all very tasty. The restaurant allowed BYO wine which made it very reasonable. Location of... More

We hadn't been there since ownership changed because they are not open for dinner midweek. We had a fantastic dinner with excellent advice from staff on what to choose (they serve substantial portions) and were delighted by the quality and finesse of the food. The ambience is still a bit dull like it always was when they can't open the... More

My wife and I dined at The Dunes with her parents visiting from the UK. We'd eaten there previously - both the restaurant and kiosk - and been consistently impressed with the food. Our latest visit was no different. Warm, friendly staff greeted us on arrival and provided great service throughout the afternoon. The menu is not extensive and but... More

Quaint rustic seating with plenty of expansion to the outdoors for the sea breezes. The tables are very rough with no tablecloths and chairs a mix of lounge and odd bits but let's face it we are here for the food. Plenty to choose from the menu and of course sea food is predominant as it should be.

I think that it is the best place where you can eat in Palm Beach. I never ate something some like there. I sure that I'll come back in this restaurant.
