Picked Sandpipers based on TA reviews. Service was prompt and polite. Food was tasty and a good standard. We had the 3 course set menu for $55. Barramundi was the highlight.

I chose Sandpipers Restaurant because it was rated #1 on TripAdvisor. I was not disappointed! The service was friendly, helpful and actually endearing which was nice. I chose the Seafood Taste Plate which included an array of fish, arancini balls, prawn hotpot and potato. I could not fault the dish and in terms of presentation the food was carefully and... More

The food and service at Sandpipers was fantastic. All staff were extremely friendly and happy to help. My only criticism is that I booked a week in advance and our table was in the back corner near the kitchen. If I had a table outside it would have been 5 stars.

No table cloths or linen napkins.Service is fast and efficient. menu is pleasant with enough seafood for the location including a fresh fish of the day. Not worth going out of your way to try...

Great dinner this evening. Excellent value for money, service was exceptional. The sticky date pudding for dessert and dumplings for entree were the highlights. Will be back!

If you want to go somewhere nice that has gives you those "good restaurant vibes", this is the place to go. It's actually the second time we've been here and the food was exceptional each time. The flavours are very well thought out and the menu is simple to navigate. Sometimes you just don't need 5 different ways to cook... More

31/03/2017 Dinner was amazing. I dined with two vegetarians and nothing was an issue to the staff with regard to changes to the menu. The staff are only too happy to help in what ever way they can. You have only to look at them and one is at your table ready to help and yet they're not hovering around... More
