If you are looking for a nice restaurant with decent food, this is not it. The menu promises to deliver but is poorly executed. The chef clearly knows what is trending at the moment and can put together a promising menu but their palette is off. Each of the dishes were poorly executed, for example, the preserved lemon risotto with... More

Our first visit to Wharf Road to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The decor is all white and bright and marine inspired, nicely done without being kitsch. We indulged in the '5 course banquet' which is a selection of dishes chosen by the chef. It really means you are served two entrees and two mains which are shared between you (for... More

Discovered this fabulous restaurant on the banks of the shoal haven river. Not only is the menu different, interesting and using local produce - but utterly delicious. The staff were knowledgeable and really helpful and the decor and view is so relaxing.

Took advantage of the $25 lunchtime special. Rather than the advertised 5-6 menu selection all that was on offer was fish and chips or a hamburger. Both came with a glass of wine and we opted for the fish and chips. While advertised as being served with salad there were a couple of leaves of greenery on a platter that... More

We have been twice now, and both times food has been exceptional. While it is a bit pricey, the thought and difference behind each dish, really sets it apart from the usual lunch/dinner menus you find everywhere else. Love the view and the decor aswell.

We had a five course banquet meal for three people. All the courses were served individually and were beautifully presented and super yummy. They were all cooked with great care by the young chef on duty that night. Service was friendly and efficient and the atmosphere as always had a relaxed but sophisticated coastal vibe. We has a great night.... More

Went to this restaurant with friends and the waiter suggested the banquet. When our courses where delivered to the table they were not what he said they were. We brought this to our waiters attention and he said they had run out of that dish-hard to believe as we were the early seating session and the restaurant wasnt that busy.... More

We enjoyed the small plates to share - fresh seafood and wonderful inventive sides - highlight was the squid chips - delicious.
