Just amazing
Amazing what they do with local products and now over 500 natural wines absolutely mind blowing





Amazing dining experience. A great paddock to plate experience with an excellent wine list to match!!


The new look of the restaurant is great and vibrant, the food is just as good have had the pleasure of eating dinner and breakfast here, every time is just as good as the last ??


Love the fact that they showcase local products, marcel is like the best chef I have ever met , never fails to amaze


Best steak in town
So tasty no extra flavour used like bases or so on , so what you have is a beautiful Bingil Bay Steak with natural grass fed flavour topped with a bit of apple and cherry wood smoked salt . Just amazing


Great food and drinks menu, drawing ingredients from the local region.
With local produce incorporated throughout a fantastic food and drinks menu, I highly recommend a visit to Harbourside's bar with it's limited menu and the dining room for the full experience. The relaxed atmosphere and lovely views of the inlet are a bonus. The kitchen is also highly responsive to dietary and religious requirements.


A sensational dining experience! Awesome staff. Chef Marcel is a legend.
