First time to the Ivory and will probably be the last. One staff member in the bar while the other one talked to her boyfriend, with lots of people waiting to be served. Tables needed to be cleared to prevent the many seagulls eating the left over food. Very little shade and seating was unorganised and dirty. Out door area... More

First time we've been here. Good menu. $15 meals. Cheap beer (stubby special) $4 for MF or Fat Yak. My only complaint was the plants are dying.

The much publicised new owners had us looking forward to a Friday lunch. We were rather disappointed. Large crowds well before the open time of 12 noon however there was not a staff member in sight in the dining area. No signs indicated where to order and patrons wandering aimlessly looking for tables. 12 o'clock hit and the kitchen staffed... More

Arriving for an early lunch we were left to seat ourselves. After ordering at the kitchen, our meals came out in dribs, some of us finished our meal before others had theirs set down in front of them. My partners eye fillet steak, cooked to perfection, was the best plate of the day. My pumpkin and quinoa salad with chicken... More

I wanted somewhere with a water view for lunch and the Ivory did not disappoint. I had the Chilli Salt and Pepper Squid and it was perfect. Very quick to be served too!!!
