Reviewed By Pete W - Bundaberg, Queensland, Australia

This place comes recommended by friends. I attended a staff function and wasn’t overly impressed.
In particular, at one time the table arrangement was altered to cater for additional guests but the new arrangement blocked emergency egress for about a quarter of the guests & the restaurant staff & management didn’t see the problem.

Paolo's Pizza Bar

Wood fired pizza!!!! Pasta and entree Gelato and cake!,

Reviewed By TheEfamilyTexasQLD - Maleny, Australia

BEST PIZZA - delicious base, incredible sauce and gorgeous toppings. Very well priced - $16 - $20. Some pubs charge $25 for a bland bistro pizza. Paolo's Pizza's are authentic and delicious.
The pasta was also delicious and everything is made quick and fresh.
The staff were friendly and the atmosphere was warm. The sea breeze was welcomed.
Be sure to go here if you are a keen pizza lover - you won't be disappointed.

Coast Restaurant & Bar

Reviewed By hungrycaterpillar270 - Singapore

Used to visit this place weekly when I lived here and can I say - it never gets old. The food and drinks are always great and the location by the beach gives this place a really classy chill vibe. Menu is constantly being revamped but so far haven’t eaten anything really disgusting. Price is not cheap but still affordable, and worth every cent. Nothing in Brisbane is quite as good as this IMHO. Would advice booking in advance. Would consider travelling all the way to HB just to eat here. Drooling just thinking about it!

Maddigan's Seafood

Reviewed By Ronald E - Hervey Bay, Australia

Madigans is always busy, that speaks for itself. They are situated across the road from a great park with picnic areas and covered seats which has access to an awesome beach.
It is our custom to pick up something from Madigans and stroll across to the beach to eat it. We have never been disappointed!

Oriental Palace

Family owed for more than 24 years

Reviewed By John M

Always met with a cirdial greeting. Staff were friendly and very efficient. Entrees were very tasty and served quickly as was our drink order. Main course of combination chow mein and lemon chicken with a large serve of fried rice stumped us, necessitating in a take away container for our leftovers.
Oriental Palace is now my chinese restaurant of choice.

Aquavue Cafe Water Sports

Reviewed By Jaimee A

Very expensive for no table service. When I asked for sugar, the waitress snapped that it was at the counter where I ordered, as she practically threw my coffee on the table. Waited 45 minutes for cold chips. Never again mate!Thank you for your review. We are sorry that you had a bad experience. If you were returning we would request that you tell us of any problems on the day so that we can rectify such problem.
