This place has the most amazing position and views. Also the food we had was good - we tried the calamari , halloumi chips, breads & dips for a light lunch. All were great. Very busy for Sunday lunch time.

Great location, attentive staff and lovely food. View of Magnetic Island makes this a special spot. Go early as not all tables have umbrellas.

Greeted professionally, seated, watered and wined within minutes. Good selection of wines, and a very extensive menu. Chicken and Barramundi dishes outstanding. Great strong flavors, perfectly cooked and well presented. Also generous servings. Couldn’t manage dessert but I think I’ll return. Really couldn’t fault them.

Located on the Strand, overlooking the water with great views of Magnetic Island. We enjoyed dining here. We found the service very good. They told us as we sat that the waiting time for the meal would be 30 min. We placed our order for...More

I have to say that the C Bar is the absolute perfect spot close to the ocean with perfect views to the island & looking down the strand. It’s because of this that we have always ventured to this restaurant. The service was great &...More
