Probably two years since we visited this restaurant.
Nothing has changed.
Still a great restaurant.
Perfect atmosphere, well presented food, and wine to match, good service.
All due to management.

My husband and myself had our wedding here in October, everything was excellent until the end of the night.

At the start of the night we had put a small bar tab on, generally speaking when a bar tab is running low, you inform the parties and ask what to do.. nobody came and asked us, the manager just continued our tab and hit us with a large bill at the end of the night. When asked why she had continued it her response was 'you didnt tell me i had to stop it once it ran out' so silly us for assuming this place had hospitality etiquacy.

Such a great ending to our wedding.

Dear Emma, you are right NORMALLY bartabs are arranged in advance of a wedding not as I am preparing to help you down the aisle. You handed me $250 for 13 guests for 5 hours and said that you would put the rest in my account by direct debit at the end of the night. At no stage did you ask me to inform you when the $250 was running low. Only minutes before entering the room for your reception you changed your mind and allowed those 13 guests to have open bar (against my advice). Your mother was drinking bubbles by the bottle (of which she had 3) and your bridal party went from beer and wine to spirits and cocktails. So really a total tab of $570 was what I would call quiet reasonable. As I was there all night to make sure that your event went smoothly you could have asked me at any time how the tab was going. In all other reviews from my bride and grooms you will notice how they all say 'That I bend over backwards for them" but in your review you forgot to mention all the things that I did free of charge for you to help make your day perfect like reduce your menu cost, drop the min spend, arrange rose petals for you to walk down the aisle as you did not have any carpet, put all your decorations out and even added some of my own to make the tables look good. I am sincerely sorry that I did not live up to your expectations

My wife and I dropped in to the River Deck for a quick lunch and we were not disappointed, even although the staff were very busy setting up for a large wedding they never missed a beat with us and were constantly attentive, polite and courteous.

We both choose to have the lunch special which at $28 per head which included an entree , main and glass of wine is a bargain especially when you see the huge 'country style' servings on the plate, add to this the beautiful view of the river and tranquil atmosphere, it was very relaxing, so our quick lunch ended up being 1.5 hours, as the saying goes 'time fly's by when you are having fun.

Met with a couple of old freinds for lunch so thought we would lift the standards a couple of notches and book a resturant.
The views of the river are outstanding and very relaxing.
I checked in earlier in the day to book a table which wasn't problem as it was a workday and they weren't busu for lunch.

I had to ask a couple of time for attention whilst standing at the counter, then again to confirm after we had completed the booking.
It's clear that the older lady attending me was the owner and clearly had other thing on here mind. Perhaps

After we arived we place an order and I must say the menu, although somewhat vague, was great value.

Over all we had a great catch up at a very nice location, however the food being value for money was judt that, but we felt it lacked a bit of class with its delivery.
The same lady who greated me when I booked also cobtinued to serve us through the meal.
Although her service was well intended we all kept being drawn to comment that she seemed distracted and not with us.
I sugested earlier that they were not busy so we would be concerned about how she may be of pushed a bit

All said and done this is a great place with increadable views, so we do recomend this resturant as value for money.

Arrived on a whim and seated at a balcony table. Awesome view. Trevally busting up only 50m away in the river. Each had the 2 course lunch special. Great value. Entrees and mains delicious. Fish main perfectly cooked with gorgeous sauce, rib fillet steak main also cooked the way it was ordered, excellent jus , round beans were amazing! Comp glass of wine with each 2 courses. Red was ok, Chardonnay better. Staff friendly and kitchen not too noisy. Hooray. We'll be back.
