The Lighthouse Restaurant ~ Cleveland

30 Apr

On ANZAC day we headed to the Lighthouse Restaurant for a family birthday lunch. A favourite spot for many of these occasions. The thing about this place is that it has one of the best views to sit and enjoy a meal.

The Lighthouse is nestled right down the end of Cleveland Point and sits on the ocean’s edge facing Moreton Bay allowing uninterrupted views of North Stradbroke Island, Peel Island and Moreton Bay.’

The downside is that you have to pay for the privilege, and on a public holiday – OUCH! But don’t hesitate on the price, they do have a small cafe/fish & chippery on the side of the restaurant and Cleveland Point is a great spot for take-away fish & chips.

The restaurant menu mostly consists of seafood dishes and two of the six ‘From the Land’ dishes contain seafood as well. Therefore probably not the best choice when taking people out with allergies or a dislike of seafood.

Saying all that, I quite enjoy the meals here. I ordered a seafood chowder on this particular visit and I was in heaven. The deliciously creamy chowder featured whole fresh prawns, scallops, squid, salmon pieces, and mussels and was accompanied by warm crusty bread. 

Others on the table ordered the always popular John Dory Herb Crumbed (fish & chips), Tempura soft shell Crab, and the classic favourite Eye Fillet. Portions were generous and all seemed quite pleased with their dishes.

The wine list is limited, but has a few good choices, while the beer list is hopeless. Service was reasonable, but our waiter indulged in a pet hate of mine – clearing the table before everyone is finished. All in all, loving the Lighthouse Restaurant for its delish food and fantastic views.
