    A disappointing experience. We booked online and there was no record of it when we arrived. But the biggest disappointment was we came to have dinner with family we had not seen in a long time and two of our guests waited over an hour and we were all finished dinner before there’s came out only after my husband went and spoke to someone. Not a great experience.

    Besides the cocktails taking a long time to make and bring to our table, everything else was good.

    The booking system to book a table was easy and great to use. The setting was lovely overlooking the marina. Ordering of drinks using the app took over 20mins sometimes. Quicker to up to bar yourself. Food service was good, but My friend ordered barramundi, and it was too 'mushy' and I ordered med/rare steak that was cooked more like well done, therfore it was chewy , not sure about my side salad, only expecting a garden side salad. I informed the lovely waitress of my disappointment of the steak.

    Normally we’ve found the Kawana Pub excellent with service and food quality. Our most recent visit was very disappointing. We waited an hour and a quarter to be served and two out of the four meals were steak and incorrectly cooked according to what was ordered. Staff were pleasant apologetic and a free drink was offered to all but overall the eating experience was unfortunately dismal.

    All meals are now supposed to be ordered online only, but be aware that a surcharge is charged, this is not right. We ordered online, but our friends couldn’t make it work and ended up ordering their lunch at the bar ten minutes after us. Surprisingly their food arrived about twenty minutes before us so we didn’t get to enjoy lunch together. This is not good enough. Food very average, nothing great. The staff are trying hard, but there are just not enough workers so tables not cleared of dirty dishes. Don’t think we’ll be back for a long while, there are so many better choices on the coast.

    I ordered Ceasar salad with chicken the chicken was terrible very bland it would be a good idea to roast the chicken first to add flavour I do believe the chicken I got was processed chicken .

    So from the beginning I had to wait for ages to be served at the bar with staff going past all the time. So then had to wait 1/2 hour for meals and guess what, they brought out mains and we hadn’t even had entrees. He took them back and about 5mins later came with entrees and then had the audacity to say “well your mains are ready I’ll bring them now.” I said No as they would get cold and I also asked for a gap between entree and mains. The entree was good but main of duck was a bit dry. Don’t know if they kept it hot or they overcooked because it was supposed to be confit and that should be moist. Then the waiter took my glass and it still had water in it I told him and he said I’ll get another one. Not necessary and a waste. Then I found out they didn’t have ice cream with dessert and I said out of all the ALH pubs I’ve been to and that’s a lot, yours is the only one that doesn’t have ice cream. He started to tell me a story about the machine well I’m sorry get it fixed or buy a new one. Then to top it off the cream with dessert was that artificial can one YUK. Also on the online menu it said $9 for dessert but I was charged $10. I think this place needs a lot of changes and maybe some proper staff training.

    Everytime we come to the Sunny Coast, we always come there for dinner as the service is really good, also the food, and a good variety of meals to pick from. Always looks very clean, will definitely keep coming back.

    Have dined here several times, sad to say the meals have deteriorated lately. Sure we had the Seniors meals, but the portion sizes have sadly decreased and the prices have increased. I had the fish and chip. Not a miss type ….the chips were meagre only matched by the two tiny pieces of fish, I should say fish sticks, as they are not much bigger if any than a couple of fish sticks. Aldi’s fish sticks would have been bigger. Wife’s chicken schnitzel was passable …. Just. Again chips were meagre. Waited too long for drinks. Tis a pity because we used to love coming here.

    Gorgeous location and really nice hotel. It took 25 minutes for beers to be delivered from using the table app though.. had to ask twice about them. Food was good value and reasonable pub food.
