                                                  The view was amazing and the seafood platter was different to what we usually have but it was also amazing.

                                                  We felt a bit rushed when seated. Our overall opinion was that the menu could do with more seafood offerings. The wine list was overpriced. The setting of the restaurant is lovely. Food presentation was well done with the dessert share plate a standout! I enjoyed the ling fish very much and the vegetable plate was scrumptious. My husbands steak was quite a small portion considering the price. We also felt the restaurant could have done with more staff as they were quite overworked. We would like to try the ‘locals night’ but will not rush back on a weekend night.

                                                  Grabbed the local accommodation and dinner package, we waited almost an hour for our main to arrive, and that would have been longer except I complained, the nice waitress did buy us off with a free glass of wine each whilst we waited. When our meals finally arrived they were cold. I have eaten here several times and have never had any complaints, this however was the first time we took advantage of the locals deal. Make me wonder if we were treated differently because of this?

                                                  We had to wait to finally put in our drink order, the staff were nice although not enough on the floor to cover the patrons. Food was nice however, the ambiance, service and food did not match the prices paid.

                                                  Great service and extremely obliging for our requests, which was great rather than feeling intimidated by asking. Food was delicious for the 5 at the table, promptly served. Mocktail for my daughter who cant drink alcohol looking fantastic, was delicious and well priced which is great to see as often non drinkers are forgotten at restaurants. Overall it was a great placed to dine.

                                                  I dine here frequently and thoroughly enjoy it. There were a couple of times that we had to find someone to ask to take the dirty plates or mugs or walk them to a trolley on our own as there wasnt enough room on our table to get more. But otherwise, I love it here :)

                                                  Always a good place to eat and the usual quality service. Staff were friendly, efficient and tastefully professional. Although I would like to be able to put the lid on a half emptied bottle of wine and take it home to finish so I won't go foul of the breathalyzer. This is the one weakness I find in eating here.

                                                  My husband and I got the seafood platter combo for 2 for $125. We found the cold platter delicious, however the hot one was just “ok” apart from the lobster. I also had 2 of the espresso martini’s. They were very good, however I did wait quite a while for my second drink after ordering...probably about 15min or so and started to wonder if it was coming at all. The waitress was very nice and attentive. Overall the food and service was pretty good, however perhaps a tad over priced.

                                                  Being our second visit within 3 months was hoping for a better experience but overall very disappointing. Service was poor as was the quality of food ordered. The seafood risotto was gluggy with 2 over cooked prawns and 3 empty mussel shells. At $37 extremely poor value for money. Waited 20 minutes for coffee only to be told the machine had broken down! Would not recommend unfortunately.

                                                  Firstly the food and location is great. Each course was well prepared and well presented. Loved that the sides were included and just the right sizing. The service whilst enthusiastic, smiling and friendly it needs a bit of attention. Not trying to be snobby but when paying over $150 for dinner their is a few basic things you expect. Firstly the cutlery was set on the wrong side, the glass on the table was chipped, we ordered tap water but was delivered still water, the wrong wine arrived and then when the right one came it was a different vintage then the wine list showed... Overall we still had a good night but with so many choices in Terrigal to dine at, getting the basics right can make all the difference.

                                                  Great food, good view, good service, but lacks a little atmosphere - which is probably down t the fact that the restaurant is a large and attractive room, which feels a little like a business conference.

Added extra is that they make you a Coffee to order on arrival and they make Omelettes to order. Without a doubt, it is the best Buffet Breakfast I have ever had with an amazing view!

                                                  Very professional, warm and friendly greeting. Lovely table & outlook (even though it was nightime) Service all night was great - very helpful but not annoying. Good suggestions made in relation to desert choices. Meal was superb! Would highly recommend this restaurant.

                                                  Excellent service from staff with a beautiful view, the beach is actually light up so we could still see the waves breaking on the sand even though it was night. Our starters and main meals were just delightful and the wine list made it hard to choose. Unfortunately we were unable to manage a dessert.

                                                  Very disappointing. Food was barely lukewarm with old shriveled up potatoes. Other veggies were boring. The waitress was beautiful and gave us a complimentary dessert but the honeycomb thing was ridiculously sticky and thought it would take my crowns off.

                                                  Jade our waitress provided exceptional customer service. She came to our table numerous times to check how our dining experience was going and was able to answer any questions we had about the menu. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. We'll be back for dinner again soon.

                                                  We found the food to be really delicious but we were very appreciative of your staff (can't remember the young ladies name but she went out of her way to make sure everything that our daughter was dairy free and the chef was willing to change things for her if needed. You don't find this at many places. Thank you again for a lovely evening.

                                                  Would recommend the food and service. However on the evening of our visit the air conditioning was on so high that the temperature was extremely cold. Many of the patrons were wearing their outdoor coats. The staff appeared to be unable to do anything about it. My wife was eventually loaned a cardigan by on of the staff which was much appreciated.

                                                  The place is looking very very dated! Needs a revamp to bring it out of the 90’s.... Food was nice and service very good.
