We arrived just in time to enjoy a magnificent view of the setting sun. Although the dining area on the front lawn was crowded, we experienced excellent service. The food order came much earlier than expected considering the crowd and the food was excellent.

Very popular with the local, parking (though free) is hard to find. Relatively small menu but well executed. The local wild barramundi was disappointedly frozen but the salad bar (free) is popular.

Staff are friendly, with a good variety on the menu at good prices. I had the wild caught Barra which was great. The view was excellent with a perfect dry season sunny day. Will be back here soon.

I was introduced to this bistro on my last trip when a local hosted a dinner. We'd sat at a table away from the main setting, on the lawns overlooking the sandy beach and the horizon - great spot with 180 degree views of the...More
