Lovely peaceful setting looking out to lagoon and paddle boat. Waiting staff very attentive and choice of great and plentiful food. Why would you want to go into the waterfront for dinner.

Great views and good service. We ate on the deck outside and I had the tempura prawns as recommended to me. They were excellent.

Overall very poor experience. Food was of an extremely poor quality, service was struggling and extremely arrogant management (Mike); even a service charge is added to your bill. As residents of the area, we certainly don't recommend it, nor will we be back ever again.More

Lovely deck, right on the edge of the lagoon, great for sundowners followed by an evening meal. Service could be improved but ok if you chill out. Wine list very reasonable on price.
