A beautiful location on the beach front of Rose Bay, sits the excellent all day dining room! Located in the building of the Sydney Sea Planes the theme and design has been well executed. Food in general rarely disappoints and service is friendly but the team could do with more training! Enjoy the magnificent views of the harbour and walk along the beach after….the next step is a trip on the planes over the harbour!!! Enjoy and make sure you book…

I recently dined at this restaurant with a friend visiting from overseas, and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The food was excellent, with attentive and friendly service throughout. Priced at $35 per main course, the portions were generous and satisfying. I opted for the fish curry, while my friend enjoyed the pasta, both of which were presented beautifully and tasted delicious. I highly recommend dining here not only for the fantastic food but also for the stunning view overlooking Lyne Park and Sydney Harbour. You might even catch sight of a seaplane taking off or landing while you dine, adding to the overall charm of the experience. .

Nice chilled out atmosphere with spectacular views. Simple non complicated or extended menu. Great place to have a nice meal and drink and sit by the water. Reasonably priced considering location.

During my recent dining experience at this restaurant, my friend and I were both thoroughly impressed. The culinary offerings were exquisite, complemented by attentive and courteous service throughout our meal. With main courses priced at $34 to $50, we found the portions to be ample and gratifying. I savored the fish curry, it was displayed with impeccable presentation and remarkable flavors. I wholeheartedly endorse this establishment not solely for its exceptional cuisine, but also for its breathtaking vistas overlooking Lyne Park and Sydney Harbour.
