We found the restaurant lovely and quiet at 11am Sunday. Settled in for brunch and had a fantastic time. Wait staff were cheerful and helpful and the food was simply delicious! We tried several things from the breakfast and dessert menu and everything was tasty with good sized portions. Kids loved watching the fish swim under the wharf just next... More

Had a meal for four people. Service was fast; efficient and with a smile. Had two courses of well cooked food. The food was tasty and of sufficient size to satisfy. We will return.

This restaurant is a family owned and operated business. The staff are all welcoming and friendly, providing very good service. The meals are well presented and served in a timely manner. The location, situated on the marina, is a very unique location, with excellent views of the waterways and is particularly scenic at sunset. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Mid morning munchies in an almost deserted restaurant that still provided excellent service and lovely greeting from the owners. The outlook is pleasant with vessels moored in the marina and bright blue skies. We checked the menu for lunch, and it looked terrific..... If only we had the time. A nice experience!

The Salmon was one of the best that I have tasted. The service was excellent. The location at the marina is fantastic.

I wish I knew about this Italian restaurant earlier instead of wasting valuable time and money on so so places in Nelson bay. It has the most ambience by the water and marina, delicious food and reasonable prices. We will comeback.

Top spot, right on the water overlooking the beach and marina. We were greeted by what looked like one of the brothers. Hi, I'm Nick, so friendly I thought I had known him for years. My wife and I had the Oysters Kilpatrick followed by a fillet of Jewfish for me, a veal dish for my wife, Tassie scallops and... More

The staff as always were friendly and welcoming and the table service was excellent. We were seated at a table by the water as we had requested. We asked the waitress if the Jewfish/Mulloway was fresh and if it was local. She went away to ask and came back and said yes, so my partner and I ordered it. We... More
