This cafe has a great location, and no competition, so expectations were not high. Views are good, service nice enough, food was ordinary but edible. If you want fine food, don't go there, but if you want a reasonable meal, at an okay price in a great location, this cafe works. We would go back, and would recommend it to... More

Have been to this place many times over the last ten years, mostly because of the great location. Food was ok (not great, but ok) at the beginning, but the quality of the food and the service started to decline gradually over the years. After what happened there yesterday, we are NEVER coming back again. Never! After we complained about... More

Although the whole place is named - "Point of View". There are TWO very distinct areas here with a very different focus. Although they have the same name - One is called "Restaurant and bar", the other appears to be the "Takeaway / fish and chip shop" area. 1. The larger main establishment, which takes up most of the building... More

Had coffee with the girls one afternoon. The location itself is awesome and staff ok but the coffee was awful!

We booked this venue for a small birthday lunch. Although a very windy day, the views across the bay are spectacular. There was sufficient variety on the menu. We found the staff very friendly, courteous and efficient. The meals were well presented and very tasty. I would recommend the avocado fritters. Coffee was excellent. Plenty of parking during the week... More

We were visiting the area and decided on fish and chips take away for lunch. We were told by the staff there that the fish pieces were quite large so we opted for one piece between us. What we received was nicely cooked and very tasty, but there was certainly not enough of the fish for two people - it... More

It is a massive shame this restaurant takes up this prime location. The owners really do have zero customer service skills and the food is to be desired. I live close but have only been once and vowed never to go back. It may be good for a juice... Just don't order anything that requires skill.

My daughters brought me here for Fathers Day. It's a beautiful spot and the restaurant was well arranged with tables nicely set for expected guests. They've a good range of meals from just toast through to substantial meals. Between us we had 5 of the big breakfasts, of which 1 was a "veggo", meaning it had avocado instead of bacon... More

We are locals and have eaten here quite a few times. Fantastic location down at Wellington Point. I have read bad reviews about rude staff but have always found them quite amicable myself - they do seem to use young casuals, who get a bit flustered with crowds, on Sunday mornings for breakast but still friendly enough. Have found the... More
