The staff were friendly and helpful. We didn’t feel rushed. On arrival offered water and once our guests arrived drinks order taken and given adequate time to look at menu. The food was excellent. A very enjoyable and relaxing time.

We love going to C-Bar & do it often. Food, service, ambiance normally exceptional. This night there were not enough staff to follow up requests. The Seafood platter, which we adore was excellent as usual, but could have done with another sauce other than szechuan, and there was no salt in the garlic prawns. For a seafood platter many more napkins are needed. We will be back to our favorite restaurant.

Absolutely brilliant service and food, I haven't stopped talking about it!! Peta went above and beyond to ensure we were looked after, from changing our seats as per our request for no sun, to ensuring all food was correct, on time, and drinks were always checked on without being annoying. Excellent food, couldn't be faulted, and the whole table had a wonderful lunch!! Thank you!!!

When I booked, I asked for an inside table as a special request as one of the party has sunspots/melanomas. Although we had a wonderful table outside and the staff said we could change our table, it was not a good start. I don’t know whether it was your booking app or special requests were not emphasised to the restaurant staff. This is the second time it has happened with the Table Agent booking app.

Water front dining, beautiful seafood platter full of flavours with the only blemish being the small sand crabs which let the dish down as they lacked flavour, we would have preferred some fresh prawns but overall a feast.

The coconut rice was a little too salty for my taste (overpowered the sweetness of the coconut), but I am aware that that is just my personal view - not everyone prefers less salt, although it can be added to the dish afterwards, but cannot be taken out. We go there often, and will continue to do so. May try the laksa next time - always enjoy the prawn and mango salad as well. Booking online was easy, although not everyone (elderly especially) have a smart phone or computer - perhaps both options (telephone or computer) would be good - just a suggestion. Thank you.

the staff rang me 3 times in regard to my booking as it was raining, to make sure I had a suitably dry seating area (60th birthday celebrations) which I was very appreciative of. Service excellent as usual. The weather didn't dampen our experience at all. Everyone enjoyed their meals.

My friends and I enjoyed our meal and the venue as we always do. However having booked online a fortnight ago I made a request to change the arrival time from those in the dropdown menu. I received a call to confirm my booking and explain COVID rules only 1 1/2 hours before the time we expected to meet. I then had to contact my friends at the last minute to change times etc. This call could have been made a few days sooner to save a last minute change to our plans. We also noted that whilst we were expected to wear masks inside ( no problem for us to do) only a couple of staff members actually were wearing masks. We expected that the rules should especially apply to staff serving and dealing with customers whether inside or out.

Two of us were locals and two interstate visitors. We all enjoyed our meals. My husband and i both had the prawn and mango salad. It was nicely presented however we both felt a bit too much capsicum. The taste was not so exciting as “mango and prawn” combination lead us to try.

Food and location were great but it took a long time to received our ordered drinks. I ordered a white wine but was brought the red instead - I did not complain as I did not want a fuss. When we ordered a second round of drinks it happened again even though the waitress clarified the what wine order. Nice staff just inexperienced.
