Great pub 2 mins walk from Twin Towns. Stayed here whilst going to a show at twin towns. Very friendly and a pub style menu. Free sausage sizzle for the saturday arvo punters which is a nice touch, also schooners at pot prices. Rooms were affordable and comfortable. Will definitely be back.

I had slow cook lamb shank ($14) and my partner had crumbed chicken schnitzel ($14). We both thought the food was very good. Everybody spoke highly of their meals. The lamb shank... More

A great country pub by the harbourside. Cheap beer, great food, pies and sausage rolls if you miss dinner time, gaming if that's your thing, or good music playing on the tannoy, and a range of pay-tv sports options. I cruised in the other day and the staff were very obliging at setting up the soccer WITH SOUND I'll repeat... More

A good meal at a fair price, most meals are under $16.00. The service was outstanding and the staff very friendly. We ate at the Dolphin 6 nights out of our 8 day stay in Coolangatta, as well as 3 lunch meals. Fantastic!
