I was a bit disappointed when I visited Blue Waters in March. I remember their seafood being fresh and well cooked. This visit I had incredibly rubbery calamari and the food tastes like its being made by a different chef.

Another wife and niece dinner trip. Not as good as last time. Attention to detail is important to ensure complete satisfaction. My fish slightly dry but a generous portion. The steak was excellent. Service pretty good and top location.

We just turned up without booking and despite being very busy, we had a very pleasant dinner. The chicken burger was massive and Kingclip was very good. No comparison to the Coachman but very good and would recommend.
