Hidden away on the beach with stunning panoramic waterfront views, Waves Restaurant offers an amazingly picturesque dining experience.
As a restaurant, it is just perfect for casual group meals, a romantic dinner for two or for a more elaborate wedding – for which they are very well known. Their interior has an easy, coastal feel with comfortable furniture, letting the ocean take centre stage. With glassed walls allowing the maximums views of the ocean in front of you, the feeling of dining by the sea is as real as it gets.
Their team of chefs have created a seasonal and mouth-watering menu that complements the relaxed, seaside feel of the venue. There are also delicious vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options and a daily specials board. The wine list is also generous in its diversity with sulphate-free, organic wines available as well as delicious local and interstate wines. There is plenty of paid parking right outside their door and they are open 7 days for lunch &

    We were made welcome and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. On both occasions I felt glad I had chosen Waves. Jenna and Olivia and Nicole are some names I remember from our two visits for lunch. I have another dinner date planned for 4 next month. Flathead and chips were excellent! Well presented and excellent value. Alan.

    The food, the staff and the view are always terrific, but it was soooo noisy at lunch yesterday, and unfortunately both of our friends have difficulty in hearing at the best of times, perhaps it was not the best choice to meet them at Waves.

    This venue is always a delight to visit, although we have only been there for lunch. The menu is varied and interesting and the wine list carefully chosen. Only slight detraction is that it can be a little noisy, if seated near a large group. Of course, the location is perfect. Be wary of the Council owned parking out the front, which may limit your stay.

    For our first time at waves we were very impressed with the service and the quality of the food. My husband and I had the seafood linguine and found the meal to be the most delicious food we have ever eaten. We have had many similar but never one that good. Thanks again Chris and Graeme.

    Online booking didn’t let us specify kids or adults. So when arriving they didn’t have kids menus out or even offer them till requested ( 3 kids under 10) Food was beautiful. Services was little slow and forgetful.k and no one offered to close the blind with the very bright sun so we did it ourselves instead of wearing sunnies in the restaurant.

    Tried this restaurant for the first time with family and can say that I was not at all disappointed. The experience was beyond expectation that its impossible to find fault in it. The service we received such as the prompt attentiveness and friendliness of staff, the size portion and deliciousness of our food dishes , the view of the venue was just amazing. Will most definitely be back again sooner.

    Whilst our food was okay the service we were treated with was far from acceptable. To be rushed out at 9.30pm on a Saturday evening was appalling. Unlike any other restaurant, we were offered desserts as our main meal plates were been taken away with no follow up, nor were we offered coffees. When we did ask for coffees at 9.15pm we were told no as the machine had been cleaned. We spent over $200 at your restaurant which you wont be seeing again. Very disappointed patrons!!
