Great food and atmosphere. Nice location with some sea views depending on your table. Great service at the bar and by the floating barman.

Loved the food and atmosphere, the only disappointing factor would be the wait staff never cleared the dirty coffee cups or plates which sat on the table for 2 hours after we had finished eating.

thank you.

Very large serves. I had the fish Taco entree . It was large enough for a lunch.
Cold seafood options only on very large plates with deep fried fish/ calamari .
Oysters were offered, but we didn’t order.

Friendly staff.

We love getting together at the Surf Club. The food and drinks are always fabulous, made better by the sea breeze coming through the windows.

The only disappointment was that we had seven diners, two of whom received their meals quickly but had finished before the other five meals arrived. Should have all been provided simultaneously. It soured the dining experience.

Have had the pleasure to eat here in the last 6 months on and off.
I cannot praise the food, staff, service etc enough.
Our visitors that we have taken here, as well rave about the meals and the ambiance of this excellent spot.
Thankyou for again making it such a yummy experience.

Staff were helpful and friendly, nothing a problem. Food was ok, the garlic bread would have been better without the cheese all over it. Tempura Prawn cutlets on a Caesar salad was ok, serving size good but the prawns weren't flattened, just battered prawns, and too much bacon in the salad for my taste. Chips were ok. Battered fish sat heavy afterwards. Would try breakfast next time.

Food order was taken 3 times. Waited over an hour for food and coffee. Not worth the wait.
Staff apologetic, but no rush to fix situation. Location is great!

Very good food and nice scenery. However, I think that the portion sizes were a little TOO big. Hard to get through everything on the plate, but still delicious.

Food and staff were really good. The view is not what is on website, we were told that sand had been dumped there which is not the clubs fault but a real shame.
Did enjoy breakfast, Thank you

I think think the dining area with glass facing the beach should have Blinds to assist in reducing the heat or light. Maybe Airconditioning just in the hot area as fans are insufficient to cool the room.

Great menu, food was good but not great, quite a long wait of more than 40 minutes whilst only 2/3 capacity. No view, which is rather surprising. But overall a bright, pleasant place to have breakfast with friendly staff.
