First 2021 Judges Report coming soon

What the Judges said in 2019

This elegant beach front restaurant has one of the most spectacular views along Victoria’s coastline, but the views are only one of many reasons it is a must visit venue! The service is smart yet casual, the wine list has some lovely handpicked locals to go with the best of the regions microbreweries. A talented kitchen brigade create amazing dishes including seafoods so fresh as if they have just pulled it from the water right next to your table.  What about the kids? Take them too, they are catered for, and what better way to conclude you day with a walk up the beach.

Special Strengths


Spectacular waterfront setting. Large menu. Fresh seafoods. Sensational Miso and carrot cured Kingfish. Sumac roasted pumpkin. Brilliant desserts. Well planned drinks list with local focus by the glass or bottle. Family friendly. Great value for money.
