This place must be the pick of the town. We liked it so much traveling north that we ensured that our overnight stay was once again in Bowen, just to have a meal at this pub. How is that for local tourism? The chef clearly loves asian food and the attention to detail in the fresh herbs used was outstanding... More

The restaurant is very well presented with a modern take on the 'Hamptons' style and you can't beat the view through the picture windows. It is staffed by friendly staff who are willing to go that little extra to make sure everything is in order. The food could not be faulted, it was fresh and well proportioned.

An old school pub made modern with beautiful interior design but hey it's still a pub serving delicious meals. You won't leave hungry! Quick and efficient service too!

Nice for dining and food. Food is pretty good - but expensive for a small town though. Drinks also expensive. Restraunt area is well done. Pretty. Outside is nice although out group got eaten by mosquitoes. All in all a good spot for a Friday night. Probably one of the better spots

The pork belly was to die for... I have eaten a lot of pork belly dishes at top restaurants and this one topped that! My hubby had the "fat boy" Parma and he loved his meal. The decor was amazing and staff very friendly. Highly recommend this place for a meal!

My parter & I waited an hour for our lunch and even as hungry as we were it was ordinary and bland food. Steak was dry, chicken also... Won't go back in a hurry left dissapointed.

We had to unexpectedly stay in Bowen for the night and decided to head to the Grandview for dinner. We had no idea what to expect because it was a last minute decision and had never... More

We were lucky enough to be in Bowen on a Tuesday night and took advantage of their 2 for 1 dinner special. It was the nicest meal we have enjoyed during our whole 3 months traveling in Queensland. The food was cooked to perfection, staff were efficient and friendly, the decor is 1st class and they play fabulous music. Highly... More

Excellent standards, really professional staff. Pleasant outdoor area, for eating or relaxing with a drink. Well presented and very tasty food. The Beef and Guinness Pie is probably the best we have tried in Oz..
