Brand new restaurant...Only opened beginning of July 2016. It was absolutely beautiful. Inside Monmouth Park , upon first glance we were all awed. The blue was striking; videos were on the walls and ceiling. The glass structure surrounds you and allows you to bring the outside in. Deck seating is available also and a guitarist played all evening. SERVICE was... More

Right from my phone call to make a reservation to the end of the evening, the service was very good. I booked this restaurant for a 30th birthday diner as another restaurant I wanted to try was booked out. We were greeted seated and water on the table with quite efficiency. Our entrees were lovely especially the calamari, cooked to... More

We have been visiting Tedder Avenue for years but have not been to blue Grotto for a while. We noticed the sign that flagged the changes and thought that we might see the difference. The experience was very good and I will say that the Blue Grotto is a "must do" when staying in Main Beach. We had the pan... More

Visited the restaurant on this trip to find the food and service still excellent. My partner ordered the barramundi rissotto and was very impressed with the quality and flavour of this dish. I ordered the snapper on an Asian salad and it too was excellent. We were booked into the Versace the following evening for a birthday diner, but cancelled... More

We dropped in for late lunch on a Sunday. It wasn't crowded and we were seated quickly by a friendly waiter. I ordered the chicken caeser salad which comes with a nice soft poached egg and anchovies. The waiter even popped a couple of extra salty little fish on top for me after we had a discussion about anchovies. Mrs... More

Trying to get into a restaurant without a booking at Marina Mirage on New Year's Day is a long shot. So after negotiating the underground car park for 15 minutes without finding a park, we decided to try Tedder Avenue Main Beach. The Blu Grotto Cafe (fully licenced) is under new management, but surprisingly wasn't crouded. I wouldn't call it... More

We had a wonderful dinner at the cafe in September. We just checked in to a hotel nearby and we were tired, so our receptionist recommended this cafe to us. We weren't expected much but we were definitely glad we chose to stick with her recommendation. The service was really good. Our waitress was very friendly and accommodating. The food... More

Our group went here for lunch today. I have to say it was fantastic!! The staff were so obliging and attentive as our group of 9 arrived in dribs and drabs. The menu was wonderful and gave a lovely selection for all budgets and tastes. The chef was ever so obliging with the dietary requirements of one of our diners.... More
