We went to Waves on a recent trip to Port Campbell to celebrate a family members birthday party. Lovely relaxing atmosphere, friendly, fast and service with a smile. The food was amazing. Most of us had one of the seafood platters as had been suggested by a frequent dinner. We loved it. It was fresh, tasted out of this world and just melted in your mouth. Could not recommend this restaurant highly enough.


Waves is excellent. Went there the other night. Food was exceptional. A must if youre in or visiting Port Campbell
