Very happy with the cabin and facilities. We couldn't be more comfortable. Just a reminder that there is no wifi. Free wifi at tourist information. All very clean and neat here and the tavern next door is fine. Great view across the bay, as in the ohoto.

Unfortunately the only good part of eating at this location was the view. We arrived for dinner here on Monday 4th March at 6pm and the main area was full, with some diners sitting in the bar area to eat their food. We decided to eat in the bar area which was not a problem for us, however after waiting just over an hour for three mains of Chicken Parmigiana, chips and salad ($30 each), we were given what essentially looked like a dinner plate of oil, the cheese was abnormally thick and was oozing oil, the Parmigiana was hot but not crispy on any part of the main and was also heavily soaked with oil, the chips were hot but not crunchy and the side bowl of salad was swimming in the vinaigrette. By this time of night there was no choice but to consume the food provided, as this location shuts at 8pm. There was also no alternative options for obtaining food as there are very limited services in Strahan. The front of house staff were friendly. We noticed quite a number of individuals and groups of people leaving quite soon after arrival, possibly in the hope of being able to get food somewhere else.

On a Monday evening in march we were stunned to find it almost impossible to get in anywhere for dinner in Strahan.
We decided to try the regatta point tavern and not only did they squeeze us in, but the roast lamb dinner I had was delicious. My wife had the turkey and it was good, but the lamb was better.
Plus they charge fairly reasonable pub grub prices.
Shared the apple pie to finish and it was also very good and sensibly priced.
Recommended.

If you are looking for a nice spot to go for dinner this is not the spot! It's got a nice view but that's about it, waiting about an 1hr for meals. Everything was microwaved and didn't know how to cook something as simple as garlic bread. Way over priced for the servings you get. If you are wanting to leave a place feeling ill and throwing up after you eat here this is the place to go to. All round just not worth the time.

We found this to be one of the only affordable eats out in Strahan. The atmosphere is that of you typical small town club, and the service was amazing. The staff were kind and worked really well to assist with dietary requirements. Food was delicious, particularly the ocean trout. Would definitely revisit.

Alot of negativity in reviews I dont agree with

Did not stay at the villas, my wife and I visited for dinner. Looking at the Regatta Point Tavern's website, it shows an extensive menu at reasonable prices.

When we arrived, we found that the menu was completely different from what they had on their website. It was much, MUCH smaller, and noticeably more expensive. I understand that menus change, but their current menu isn't posted anywhere online.

We ordered a prawn cocktail for entree, then a chicken parmigiana and salt and pepper squid for mains. The prawn cocktail was ok, but then again it's hard to stuff that up.

The parmigiana, on the other hand, was awful. It had clearly been microwaved instead of baked, and the bottom was completely soggy and the crumb fell apart nearly instantly. The chicken itself was soft and mushy.

The salt and pepper squid was horrendous. Roughly 8-10 pieces of tiny battered squid had been tossed onto the plate. The seasoning was bland, too thick, and almost spongy. Once you got through the seasoning to the squid itself, it was just mush.

Both the parmigiana and squid were served alongside bland, soggy, unseasoned chips, and a salad which was underdressed and had weirdly large chunks of tomato, capsicum and beetroot.

Neither of us finished our meals, and left incredibly disappointed; especially for what cost us a total of nearly $90. It also took a weirdly long time for our food to come out, considering there were only a handful of people in the restaurant.

When it comes to pub meals, we're generally pretty forgiving as it's supposed to be no-frills food that covers the basics. The Regatta Point Tavern's food fails to meet even these very low expectations.

If I was in Strahan again and the Regatta Point Taven was my only option, I'd choose to go hungry.

Did not stay here in the rooms but had a few drinks at the bar.
Location was beautiful but the pub needs a decent clean or refit.
After seeing the food come out we didnt eat there

Called to book a table for dinner & was told they don't take bookings just walk in,,we arrived at 6.15pm & were lucky enough to get the last table, people were lined up out the door looking for tables,,it was unorganised & kaotic but the meal was timely & delicious.
If you can handle a bit of kaos & turn up early the meals are great pub grub & the only place you can get veggies in Strahan.

My family and I ate dinner here on January 2nd. Called ahead and was told they dont reserve tables and just turn up, we arrived around 6pm and got the last free table. The staff were friendly, the host was lovely and briefly chatted with us at our table.
We ordered 2 kids nuggets, 1 kids snitzel with gravy, 1 pizza topped snitzel and 1 rissoles with bacon. They were busy so we did wait a bit, but we busied ourselves playing cards and had some drinks. There were some issues with our meals. We got served 2 kids snitzels and 1 nuggets with no gravy. These issues were fixed once we told them. I also ordered my pizza topped snitzel with no onion, it came with onion which i picked out myself. The saving grace was it was all delicious and large servings.

We were greeted at the door by a lovely lady who showed us which tables were available.
All the staff were very friendly, our food was absolutely delicious and the prices were hard to beat
We were very impressed and will definitely be back when we visit Strahan again
5 stars ?

Host was very blunt and direct. Only given 1 table option when the pub was almost empty. Told not to stand in line for service untill it was empty and that there was only a limited menu. It was very basic pub fare.

Rang and licensee said she would hold a table for 7 of us at 6pm so we could sit togethor. We turn up 2 days later and she claims no memory of the conversation and says people always try to fool her like this?? My wife was there when I had the original phone call and heard it all. We left, completely turned off by her attitude.

Great establishment. Typical country pub meals. Yum. Great value. Fabulous service. Told them we were celebrating a birthday and lol and behold a pavlova turns up at the end of the meal. Vicki was a pure delight. Highly recommend.

We enjoyed a lovely walk here from the town centre, and that's about the extent of the good experience... zero ambiance, no music, dead silence, only 3 beers on tap and the food was very very average... not worth it. Staff were friendly though.

BIG shout out to the Regatta Point Tavern Bistro. They went above and beyond for us and many others that were left without food after all other venues in Strahan had closed or were booked out. They continued to cook meals well after closing time just so we could get a meal. And a beautiful meal too. Massive thank you to the owners and all the staff. That is how you look after tourists.??

Booked a 2 bedroom villa for 3 people. It was like going back to the 70s! Very dated and worn. The heater was running all night but it was still cold in the morning. Needs a revamp badly.
Had a meal at the tavern and that was very ordinary as well.
Wouldn't recommend to anybody.

Came here for dinner based on our hosts recommendation and the experience was pretty terrible. Took us like 20 minutes to order, there was a lot of chatting at the counter. Once we ordered, we waited for nearly 40 minutes for our food. This is a pub, such waiting time is unacceptable!!! I was willing to forgive this if the food was ok, but the pasta I ordered was bland and unpalatable. Such a waste of good produce. Definitely do not recommend!!!

We had a great feed at the Regatta. Proper pub food. Staff were very friendly and meals are just like Mum used to make. Much needed after 7 days on the road!

Not a venue that I would recommend for a great meal.
We scored each of our meals 5 out of 10. Staff attitude there was only one waitress that I would recommend, unfortunately I don't know her name. There was also a waitress that none of us could understand what she was saying.
Think I have said enough.
