Food was pretty good for the price. Quality might not be the best, but to feed four hungry big units it's not too bad. Had the squid, chicken and beef nachos as well as both variety of dumpling and our favourite the pork roll.

Food was tasteless, we were tempted to leave it. Grilled burramundi was soggy and chewy. Non of the 3 meals tasted good. Service was very poor. The waitress was not familiar with the menu, she even could not understand what we ordered and had to be shown (English speaking). She asked the chef to come and tell us about the menu-he was impatient and rude. There was a very loud music next door and was abusive to the ears. The whole experience was very disappointing, I regret even driving there. Even 50% was too much for this dinner. Would not recommend.

We enjoyed a lovely dinner at On Shore. Both the food and the service were impeccable. We were given a great table for 2 facing out to the beach. The restaurant was busy but we could still hear ourselves talk. Also, being there early for 'first table' meant we could enjoy a happy hour glass of wine or two!
Thank you On Shore.

We enjoyed our lunch at On Shore. They have an extensive, diverse menu with something to suit everyone. I enjoyed a delicious warm lamb salad (Greek salad with loads of yummy feta!). My girlfriend had the wild barramundi, grilled with a fresh side salad and fries. Service was fine with the owner saying hello and welcoming us to his establishment for the first time. Highly recommended!

We dined early as we had a baby with us. The food was lovely and service excellent. I had salmon and my guests had chicken dishes which they really liked. 6 pm is a good time to go as it is quiet.

We very much enjoyed our dinner on Sunday night. We surprisingly managed to fit 3 courses in over a leisurely celebration. It's our second visit for dinner and it won't be our last. The seafood is delicious. We also had at least a few glasses of lovely wine, which was in happy hour so it made them very affordable.
