We were a group of 7 visiting from Sydney on a girl's weekend away. We had a long lunch at the Dining Room and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The Degustation was delicious, good value and allowed us to try a variety of Cable Bay's wines. Service was bang on, and the view can not be beaten. We only wished we didn't rush off to get the ferry, because it was over full and left so we were stuck in the terminal for an hour when we could have been enjoying a wine on the bean bags in the outdoor verandah area....we'll know for next time!

Very disappointing. Staff tried to push us into eating in the dining room, insisting there was no room in the veranda and there would be a 40 minute wait. When we said we were happy to wait for the verandah, suddenly a table was immediately available. The verandah was only 2/3 full and we felt like there was an agenda to push people into eating in the dining room. During the meal a waiter dropped a full glass of champagne on my fathers head - it drenched his head, face and shirt. The same waiter dropped dirty cuttlery into my mother’s lap.

the service was great but the flys were are real downer and slightly embarrasing as i was with customers. While i realize this is a challenge Cable Bay need to find a solution to this as flys in/on your food when you are paying good money is not really an option!
