Been a while since we were last here and thought that the changes we heard of would be for the better. I read the bio of the the head chef and thought to myself " someone from Argentina then Spain England and onto Australia would have a real sense of flavour". Wrong! Had the panco crusted Squid and might have... More

A place we use for Birthdays and Anniversary's. The food is ACE and the staff very attentive and helpful. Get a window table the view is worth it.

Friendly staff,, but no rush to clean up tables..... Furniture and decor showing real signs of wear n tear.... Smiling staff and chilled wine are the good bits that go with the view.

Great views over the river. Happy hour is a good time for drinks otherwise are a little expensive but views make up for it. Food OK but again a little over priced. Option of fine dinning inside or on the enclosed walkway area. I would only return for a pre drink before going elsewhere for a meal

Went there for a 60th lunch with the whole family. Around 10 people and kids as well. After entrée, tables weren't cleared nor were the drink glasses. The birthday girl asked for kids meal but was told no and to take a doggy bag home if you can't eat it all. Meals OK but way overpriced. Deserts $15 each. We... More

Great view for pre-dinner drinks. My partner and I decided to go here for dinner as we were staying at The Ramada , it was pouring with rain so easy not to go too far. Dinner was disappointing. We chose the eye fillet which was disappointing in both size and price ($42 ). I had chicken parmigiana which was fine... More

A popular restaurant with those staying at the Ramada Hotel, although we found that the meals were nothing special. The service was quite slow and the water was unchilled tap water.

Went to go there for dinner tonight with my husband. We were seated quickly with menus & water but then waited 30mins & weren't even asked for drinks let alone be acknowledged to order dinner. I can understand if the restaurant was busy but it wasn't. We ended up getting up & walking to the lovely Italian restaurant down the... More

I regularly stay here when travelling on business to the Northern Rivers - is a reasonable hotel. The hallway and rooms are dated and need an updated. Restaurant is pretty good most of the time. Mixed quality of the staff though - sometimes you are barely acknowledged. View and locations is brilliant though. W
