Dining in Paradise - what could go wrong? Everything was perfect except for one little thing. My husband's fork was unusable. the prongs were bent inwards and they were blunt. He couldn't pick the salad up with the fork. My suggestion would be for them to go through their forks and throw out any which are bent, blunt and unusable. Having said all that, my fork was perfect!

No complaints with food or service for our end of year function. We had breakfast at a large table and the several of the seats had no protection from the sun as it rose in the sky and there was no ability to move into shade for those affected. The sun was right in their faces. On a hot November morning in Townsville this was very uncomfortable and really detracted from the experience. Once the sun was over head there would have been no problem but we had finished breakfast by then. There is shade provided but there is a large gap between the umbrellas and the roofline that was a big problem for some at that time of the morning.

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.
