Our weekend visit was highlighted by the atmosphere, ambience, location and quality of the family Restaurant at the Marina. We had lunch on Friday and dinner on Saturday because the food and service as so good. The staff are courteous, professional and friendly and the meals were so delicious and value for money. My wife's Vegetarian Filo Pastry and my Chicken Caesar Salad on Friday, served with a cold, quality Chardonnay, melted in our mouths. Everything was so fresh. We left very satisfied and discussing how lovely it was, when one of the owners came chasing us to return my wife's handbag to her, as she had left it at the table, so add honesty to the list also.
Saturday night, we just arrived without booking, not knowing the reputation of the Restaurant. It looked totally booked out, but we feel the owner recognised us from the day before and found us a lovely table for two. Attentive, polite and professional staff once again attended to our order and wine. My wife's choice of the chicken breast and asparagus crepe with the most delicious sauce she has tasted and my order of the filet jus steak with field mushrooms and vegetables again melted in our mouths. We left the now fully booked out Deck Restaurant fully replete and satisfied and are thankful to the locals for advising us of your location. The reputation you have is fully deserved and we thank you for your courtesy, flexibility and quality of meals. We will come again of course when we are in the area.

The last night of our trip to Australia and we had the best meal of our three week trip. Attentive friendly staff. The food was superb. We all had different meals and we all ate everything on our plates.

Fabulous breakfast to start the day...sitting watching the world go by and enjoying watching people and boats at the marina. We had eggs and bacon and the toastie with avo and ham and lots of good coffee. We enjoyed it so much we returned for dinner. Chicken Parmigana which was declared to be " The best I have ever had" and Lamb Shanks which were cooked perfectly..falling off the bone. Dessert was Creme Brulee and Drunken Strawberries. DO NOT LEAVE WITHOUT HAVING DESSERT....a fantastic array of choices.
The service was friendly, helpful and efficient.
This restaurant has something for everyone. It was full, with locals and tourists all getting a warm welcome.

Could'nt have eaten at a more enticing establishment in the precinct. We had breakfast in this wonderful restaurant where we were rewarded with wonderful service and great value for money. Definately eating there upon my return someday. Dreamy views watching the action around the marina and surroundind waters.

We just finished dinner here tonight and it was easily the best meal we had in our three day holiday to Port Stephens.

We were two families of four adults and four kids. The kids meals were very generous portions (neither of the kids could finish the spaghetti bolognaise). The adults had spaghetti marinara, grilled whole bream, grilled barramundi with garlic prawns and prawn and mussel saganaki (I had the last one). All four dishes were very generously portioned and were absolutely delicious.

They also made sure the kids were served first and this was very much appreciated.

A young blond lady served us and she was fantastic in making sure to check back on us to make sure we had everything we needed and the food was OK.

Thank you for making this our memorable last dinner in Port Stephens.
