Overall a really lovely night, a little slow when we arrived to get drinks menu to table, so had to ask. Otherwise food and service was great and we enjoyed the evening. We will recommend and be back :)

I recommended this restaurant for a catchup with 3 friends as we had dined here often. The food we were served was 3/10 which is just unacceptable. One person had mussels and was served mussels that were still closed and a mussel with a badly broken shell - the response to our complaint was a joke. My risotto, a dish I have enjoyed in the past, was salty and otherwise bland. We left disappointed, it may have been Monday evening, but our experience wasn't acceptable.

We loved our meal. Our waitress was so lovely (sorry I have totally mind blanked your name) the drinks were always topped up and we didn’t wait long between courses. A very happy group of 16! Thanks for helping make my 30th extra special with the candles in my dessert.

Food was generally nice, just a little bland for both the vegetarian Haloumi and Quinoa Salad and the Linguini Verdi to lift it into 5 star food territory.

Hi, we had a lovely meal with you last night. The service was outstanding and the food great. Our only complant is that the music is so loud (with thumping base) that it makes it impossible to have any kind of conversation while you are dining. I appreciate that it is a shared space however it was just unpleasant and sadly this will cloud our decision as to whether to return for a meal with you.

On arriving they couldn’t find our booking, (but I had an email confirmation) the only reason we booked regatta was for the bluff oysters and champagne deal they had going. 2 guests had flown in the night before especially for this. Called in the morning to make sure they had bluff oysters and the reply was yes. Once we were finally seated we ordered ‘bluff oysters and champagne’ and were told they didn’t have any bluff oysters left, I said, so have they sold out from this morning after I called? and was told they were waiting for a delivery of oysters. So we left and went next door to Tokyo bay where the service and ‘Bluff Oysters’ were excellent. Come on Regatta, this isn’t the 1st time of bad experiences here. Beautiful view and atmosphere is all Regatta has going for it. Very disappointed.

The bartender spilling our drinks all over our table and clothes was HILARIOUS - that moment is now called 'The Great Flood'. I hope the bartender's okay, we forgot to ask after him on our way out. It was our first time at Regatta tonight, and now we have a fun memory to associate with Regatta. The food was DOPE, and the drinks were ON POINT. We'll definitely come back again...in raincoats. Haha. Thanks team for 'showering' us with kindness tonight. You guys are the best.

We had a booking for the Bluff Banquet. We have been to last years one & were really looking forward to this years one. Our overall experience was pretty disappointing. Upon arrival we were told to retrieve our complimentary champagne from a little booth next to the bar. I would have expected this to be brought to you at your table. We were there for 30mins and had only been given 6 battered oysters (we weren't given an option they were just put in front of us) & a bottle of water. We weren't asked if we wanted a drink. We ended up asking a waitress for a bottle of champagne which never turned up & my partner ended up going to the bar to get one. Where we were sitting there were mostly couples but there was 1 group who seemed to be getting all the service. There only seemed to be 1 waitress looking after our area. We were never asked if we wanted more Oysters we always had to ask. We never received our entrée salad & when we received our fries they were cold. The couple next to us never received their entrees they were given their mains straight away. We spent over $500 on that lunch & for that I would have expected service to be better. We are now in 2 minds about returning next year.

We had a most enjoyable evening. I particularly wanted to overlook the sea as I had overseas guests. Everything was much appreciated and enjoyed by us all. Thank you too for the friendly prompt service.
