This place is superb. The food is excellent. I had the fish of the day - grouper and my husband had prosciutto-wrapped chicken. The prices were better than the restaurants in town and the view of the harbor is terrific. Enjoy the food, staff and views. Excellent

This restaurant is part of a hotel but is open to the public. I had the roast lamb, which was absolutely delicious but the portion was so enormous that I felt guilty that I could not eat it all. My husband's meal was also very good and he managed to eat all of his! He also said he had one... More

We were bowled over by the delicious scallops in a white wine and herb sauce for me and Porterhouse steak with scallops and prawns for him, lovely salad side and a good house wine selection, loved the friendly service and great views of Picton harbour watching the ferries. Not easy... More

There is a sign outside saying , "We may look expensive but we aren't ...come and see." I have no idea why the sign is there as they do not look expensive in any way especially as they are sited next to the Picton Yacht Club Hotel. There is no air con so you either cook or bear the noise... More

Took a family group here who were visiting from out of town. Everyone enjoyed their meals - the food was really tasty and large portions. The restaurant has a great view over the harbour, and a nice cosy relaxed atmosphere. Will definitely come back.

Unbelievable experience, the Christmas decor is out of this world. They could easily charge for the experience,I would even go as far as saying they should use this as a marketing tool.The options are endless. Now the service,the head matradi couldn't be faulted,she is a real asset guiding the two junior waiters with skill and a pleasant manner. Which brings... More

We were recommended by our B&B hosts to come to this restaurant after arriving in Picton! It was located at a convenient location. Good food. The portion was huge but it was delicious.

Beachcomber is an old Hotel but has been well looked after. The room that overlooked the harbour was great. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant and the food was excellent.
