    Good basic pub menu at reasonable prices. Very attentive service although you should not have to ask for a jug of water. Only downside is the loud awful background music even for breakfast. Nice views of garden and patio.

    We have been to the Kingscliff many times in the past 30-plus years, for many kinds of occasion,but had been put off it in recent years until the present owner took over. On our recent visit for an evening meal we were really pleased. We had an excellent 3-course meal with drinks, with plenty of choice on the menu, and felt it was good value for money. The young staff were attentive, efficient and friendly. There was a pleasant, peaceful atmosphere in the dining room and, as we have done in the past, we were able to have our meal looking out over the sea. Provided the Kingscliff maintains this standard, we shall happily go again.
