An amazing experience !!!! The welcome was warm. The ambience is cosy. The food is to die for .... kingfish ceviche, fish tacos, braised lamb ribs, and the to-die-for halloumi donuts. .. and finally the service, support and advice from our two waitresses was just...perfect.More

With high expectations, having eaten here previously, and been impressed, and so many positive reviews we were unfortunately disappointed with our recent dinner. Entrees of chilli prawns and pork belly were disappointing with sauces that were thick (almost gluggy) and took away from the flavour...of the prawns and pork. Mains of mussels, some still with the beard attached, and a clam and pork pasta, where clearly the sand hadn’t been removed from the clams prior to cooking, had the potential to be great. And a side of beans which were half burnt made half the dish inedible. A dessert of Haloumi donuts, while good just seemed to be cinnamon donuts. Not sure how the haloumi was used. On a busy Saturday night the service, while friendly, was not consistent. Blue Swimmer won’t be at the top of our list next time we’re in the area.More

Called into the Blue Swimmer for lunch today with my husband and daughter, we were greeted with a smile and a table was found. All of our lunches were full of flavor and prepared very well, highly recommend this hidden gem.

Fabulous lunch - we were a large group for a birthday celebration - service e was friendly, responsive and efficient and the food was fabulous! I had oysters with ginger lime and a main of mussels in laksa broth - both fresh, plump and delicious....Blue a swimmer was highly recommended by 2 locals and didn’t disappoint - we will definitely recommend also and return.More

Sooo disappointed! Spending 4 days in the area we wanted to support local businesses! We booked online for lunch & received a confirmation! On day of reservation we also got another request for our confirmation. After driving 30 minutes the restaurant was completely shut &...there was another couple waiting who had also booked online!

Hello, I am so sorry for such a late response. Unfortunately we had a glitch with our booking system on this day which let people book online without us being aware. I rang each person and explained to them what happened and everyone understood. We...More

Another cracking night at the Swimmer. The hummus is so good you can eat it with a spoon, I am not a fish eater at all but love the kingfish ceviche. Lamb ribs first time I have had them and they are great. Been said...in other comments but the haloumi donuts OMG!!! Also they now stick South Coast Gin- do yourself a favour and try one these to start your meal. Have found all the staff to be awesome. Coffee is best in the area.More

Super delicious gourmet food. Great fresh oysters, peri-peri chicken burger and fish taco. Abit of a wait to get our takeaway order but it was worth it. Enjoy the meals on the nearby beach. Highly recommended.

Poor service. The staff at this place have no clue It probably comes down to poor management. The only lunch sitting we could get was 2.15 We turned up thinking because we were taking a later sitting it would be quieter They jammed us outside...right next to a table of screaming kids that had been there for over an hour terrorising the place. There were other tables they could have used which did not get used the whole time we were there but chose to jam us next to the screaming kids We complained to the waitress but there was not much she could do she just said yeah they booked for 1 and turned up 20 minutes late The food was ok but could not be enjoyed due to the screaming match. Wine that we ordered also never showed up They are disorganised and just don’t care about complaints or trying to work out what went wrong. How is it that staff can take a wine order and then disappear never to be seen again. The only thing this place gave me was a headache Disappointed We won’t be back.More

Hey Glen, I am really sorry your experience at our restaurant wasn’t great. I can’t really say to much about the screaming children as usually we do have a chat to the table about noise etc but once we do this we can’t do much...More
