The favourite never disappoints. In summer at sunset, it is pure magic. The service is professional, and service staff are well trained by the owners of this fabulous restaurant.

Often booked out, it's advisable to book ahead.

The seafood chowder is one of my favourites, but everything on the menu is good.

Seafood is always fresh and beautifully cooked by chefs who know what they are doing!

My wife loved her eggplant something.
My rump steak was expensive $34 and much of it was good, but far too much gristle. I got more quality meat from the $9 Small Meal at the Bowlo.
The wine was good, but expensive.
The room was cold, but the wonderful staff did what they could to make it pleasant.
We are unlikely to return.

We came for a nice meal out for a celebration. The waitress was lovely and the food was nice however the prices for children’s meal was absurd. One of the group members became ill an hour after leaving the restaurant also and was the only one who ordered that particular dish. Disappointing for the price and reputation of a fine dining restaurant.
