The highlight of the The Point is the spectacular views. The prices don't match the service however the staff are friendly and informal and the food adequate. We had 2 entrees seafood chowder and tempura prawns very generous servings. Worth a visit!

This is a restaurant you go to, to acknowledge a special occasion. We were there for the retirement of a long serving staff member. The view, especially as the sun does down is exceptional. The food and service is good.
