Lighthouse Restaurant Cleveland Point, Queensland … local favourite … boasting fresh seafood … smart casual dining … relaxed ambience … attentive staff … and ocean views to die for.

Be ready to indulge …

Char-grilled Baby Octopus over Napoli sauce with toasted crostini to start … tender and grilled, on bed of Napoli sauce … just enough sauce to compliment each mouthful …

Fresh house-made Crab and Smoked Salmon Pate with crusty ciabatta … rich, fresh chunks of crab meat combined with smoked salmon; intermingling of strong and mild flavours … lightly salted and spiced – perfect combination to tantalise your taste buds!

Maybe Smoked Salmon and King Prawn Salad – local prawns, Tasmanian salmon, mixed salad, tomatoes, fresh herb salsa with dressing … then again, Peking-style duck, Asian veggies, herbs, carrots, fried shallots, peanuts over crispy noodles sounds pretty enticing … or perhaps Green-lip Mussels in coconut milk, lemongrass, ginger, chilli, coriander served with crusty bread …
