    Disappointed with the food, staff not trained well with the menu or service. Poor pub still food, fish and vegetables over cooked, sticker left on lemon wedge. Sticky table, the list goes on. Would not recommend anyone to go there.

    The perfect spot for a lazy Sunday Summer afternoon. Extremely friendly staff and the setting is ideal to watch the world go by as you listen to the sound of the waves nearby. The food is scrumptious, and the service is prompt and friendly.

    We are somewhat regular here and as per usual the male host was rude and seems to have an air of arrogance about him. The rest of the staff were all very pleasant. Entrees were great and the mains were 50/ 50. My Scotch fillet with mushroom sauce was nothing short of spectacular! Honestly one of the best steak meals I have had. My wife ordered the Moroccan Chicken salad which sadly was tasteless and bland. Pleasant experience overall with great views. Could have done without the sour-puss face of the host however.

    Wonderful to be back! Finally the menu is basically back to normal again, after the sudden change a couple of years ago, which enables the whole family to now enjoy the restaurant and back to having great edible food, plus the takeaway is available again which is a bonus! The crayfish pate and crispy pork belly is a must to try!

    Food is absolutely amazing and the location and ambience is really nice. The staff are really friendly however the service provided by them is unfortunately quite poor. You continually had to get staff attention after waiting 20 mins for more drinks, the waitress cleared our table and failed to ask if we wanted desert or coffee. When placing the orders she never wrote anything down and forgot things like sauces, tall glasses etc. It's such a shame but the food is still really nice.

    Was a bit disappointed that I had to wait to be seated despite having a booking, as the lady was busy chatting. The table was very sticky and needed a good clean. The service was average but friendly. The food was good.

    Nice outlook, was a bit loud and hard to hear people on table talk. Market fish was lovely but very dry. Crayfish Pate was too sweet. Beef cheeks were fantastic though and so was the fish and chip dish.

    Dined outside which was very pleasant. The meals were excellent - presentation, quality ingredients, delicious and value for money!! The service was very good, but due to it being a very busy evening and we were a small group (there were other very large groups) our meals were delivered very quickly, in fact, no break between Entree and Mains.

    As a local in Blackmans Bay, I've been a patron of this venue for many years and have seen many iterations of the restaurant through various owners/managers. The current format is not bad but only fair and having been twice in the last fortnight, once with interstate guests, I find that management and staff sometimes seem to struggle to accept or consider basic requests for minor variations. Initial drink service is very slow when the restaurant is half full and menu prices listed here as the preferred online booking system, don't match the price of the table menu presented.

    The dining experience was disappointing after enjoying much better food a week earlier. The fish and chips: chips were well cooked and tasty, the small amount of fish was lost in a large amount of thick, inedible and extremely overcooked batter. Nothing like the week before. Moroccan chicken: one serve had a large amount of chicken, the other plate had virtually no chicken. Couldn't recommend the food on this experience but previously have enjoyed meals.

    Overall the dinner was great. Food was yummy. The initial service was lacking a bit though. Took a long while for our drinks order to be taken, then it took a long while for the drinks to actually arrive. Then we had to request our dinner order be taken. But once that was all done, the rest of the dinner was great.
