Gatakers Landing Restaurant
The emphasis here is on the sea and its produce, although meat eaters are also well served. Signature dishes include salt-and-pepper squid served with avocado and coriander salsa. Or for the best of everything, try a 300-gram rib eye steak, Moreton Bay bug, prawns and scallops in a garlic cream reduction, served with a fresh salad. Seafood fanatics will want to order the platter for two that includes crab, prawns, oysters, Moreton Bay bugs, coconut prawns, scallops, squid and fish of the day. The large outdoor dining area has great water views and sunsets, and during the day you will often see dolphins, turtles and whales in season.
