We were staying at the holiday inn and were absolutely blown away by how good the restaurant was. The menu was varied, and the quality of the food far exceeded the cost. The staff were wonderful too. We ended up skipping a couple of the...restaurants we’d planned to go to during our visit, so we could eat here again. Really good value for money!More

Called in tonight on the off chance we could get in. Warmly greeted and quickly found a table for two and welcomed. The menu was quite large offering a variety of Asian food. Our drink order was quickly delivered and after discussions with the waitress...on the size of serves we decided to share an entree, noodle balls were divine. Then onto mains, Nonya Kapitan chicken curry was the best I have ever eaten. My husband had beef rendang which he thought fabulous. No room for desert. Service was excellent. Sadly our last night in Trinity Beach............hopefully we will be back next year and it will be our 1st port of call.More

Staying at the Holiday Inn so decided have a quick dinner at the downstairs bar area. Reasonably priced. Quick service, nice setting and variety of seating. Just had the basic Parma and was quite nice. Service was quick & friendly.

Good selection of tapas. Better than the average hotel food. Wonderful customer service and beautiful view of the ocean.

Always great service and fantastic views out to the esplanade and sea no matter where you sit. Get the lounge area right next to the foot-path if you can, especially if you've got a group of people as it's gorgeous out there.

Part of the Holiday Inn, The Blue Mango is a mid cost bar/restaurant. Great if you don't want a huge meal and just want to chill outside enjoying the weather. The tapas selection is great for sharing over a glass of wine or two.

Locals, stayed for a night to get away. Ordered room service, ordered 3 kilpatrick oysters, chips and the lime salted calamari salad. Oysters were ok, chips were delicious. The biggest let down... well actually, for them.. embarrassment... was the salad, if thats what you would...call it..I actually went to take a pic to show my partner (who'd ducked out) and then thought, no I can't even be bothered moving for it, I was that uninspired. It was literally 6 big pieces of heavily coated calamari curls, a ramekin of sauce and about 10 wilted and sad looking rocket leaves, 3 slices of chilli, half a charred lime and one thin wedge/slice of a half portioned red onion! That was the 'salad'. I'm in restaurant management and I couldn't imagine any self respecting chef letting a meal go out like that! It was late afternoon so maybe the chefs were on break and someone else stood in...? Who knows... One thing I discovered was the amazing flavour that is made by charring lime!! I think I'm giving up on finding a hotel that has a decent restaurant attached to it!More

We shared a bottle of Pepperjack Shiraz one night last week. Great bar, fantastic furniture and of course the red wine.
