    Had a special catch up and was so happy that I chose this place. The food was so yummy and beautifully presented which was a bonus. From the time I entered, was seated and throuout the meal- the service was the best I have ever had. Staff were attentive but not at all annoying you while eating. It felt like I was at a micheline star restaurant! I would not hesitate in going back. Thankyou so much for a wonderful experience, everyone who works there should be proud of yourself.

    Excellent customer service. Entree was varied and tasty. Delicious sumptuous food. The masala Chai and coffee to end the lunch was top notch. Vibrant ambience and beautiful scenery of the bay on a sunny winter's day.

    Excellent local venue. First time I’ve been and highly recommend it. Our lovely waiter, Aston, was excellent. The food choices were varied and very reasonable prices. The view over the bay was a bonus. A lovely way to spend my birthday catch up with friends. I’ll certainly be back soon. Have already told various friends to check it out.

    We had lunch following our daughters first communion as a celebration. The food was delicious, didn’t have to wait long & the staff were lovely. Perfect spot for a quick bite or a long lunch. The gorgeous ocean views are just a bonus!

    Food was absolutely delicious. Service was poor, it was fast enough but we weren’t told about the specials and we had to instigate being seated to our table & flag down waitress. Venue was a bit noisy but otherwise very nice. Would definitely go back for the food, food as 10/10

    I had the seafood barramundi fish and chips with salad. Good value, good serve and well presented ...perfect.. Hansel and the rest of the staff attentive. We were sitting outside so as the day progressed it was cold despite the heaters...just the day no ones fault. If I had stayed longer I would have moved inside. Hansel and the attentive staff polite and courteous. I have been there before and enjoyed the meal and ambience but this time I invited my twin brother and his wife. Lisa had local mussels and really enjoyed them. Enjoy the "Crackerjack DVD" has been in my cupboard for a while. I live in Mornington and told myself it would be a fitting place for the DVD when I next return to the Restaurant. A big thankyou to Hansel and the rest of the staff. Regards Annie Gummow.

Our party ordered four different meals choices with excellent reviews and praise by all. Manager was super helpful giving us options as to where to sit and the lovely young waitresses were extremely efficient and friendly. Great experience.

    We asked to move from a table near the door,but the table we moved to hadn’t been wiped down & that wasn’t too pleasant.Also received a glass of wine with lipstick on the glass. For those reasons we would think twice about returning,the food we had was very good though

    The staff were lovely but were showing signs of stress as I imagine some diners may have not had as much patience as we did. Firstly a warning that you have to pay to park outside the restaurant and it was around $13. I found out later that this is the default payment 'up to 4 hours' but you can select the minus button to reduce to 1 hour. However, we hadn't received our food over an hour after ordering with no update of when it would be arriving. When you only have an hours break for lunch it would have been nice to have found out at around the 30 minute mark that they were running behind. They were kind enough to make a cheese and tomato toastie which wasn't on the menu for one of the party who wanted a light snack but after more than an hour asked for it as a takeaway.
