Testimonial from Kika McItyre – “Open Mic Night “

We had a lovely evening last night. Table 9 ladies…. Thanks for the beaut wine. Great bar staff and hude compliments to the chefs… our meals were divine. Cheers

I highly recommend the QCYC! We recently held my husband’s 40th birthday party outside under marquee and WOW we weren’t disappointed. They food is amazing, and they catered to our son’s dietary requirements. The staff are so friendly and professional, they go above and beyond to make sure everything is right for you. 
It’s now become a regular spot for us to enjoy the live music, food and grassed area for the kids to play on.

“…we wanted to say that we had an awesome night there. It really couldn’t have been easier or more relaxed. The food was fantastic and we had loads of people commenting on how good their meal was.
What a perfect spot! So many of our friends couldn’t believe they had never been.

Thanks again.”

“I just wanted to write and let you know about our very first visit to the Sandgate yacht club.  We spend half of our lives in Italy, and had not had the pleasure of visiting, till a friend mentioned the club.

We were happy with the menu….more than sufficient for a balmy Sunday on the terrace with a cool breeze blowing.  On this occasion, we did not participate in the wine menu, but I did see there were single glass offerings for the designated driver as well as a comprehensive wine list.

We were in 4 people…only two ordering the same plate, and all plates were well presented and tasty.  ALL staff were friendly and welcoming, and we will definitely return.”

yours faithfully,

Beverley and Giambattista Nicoli
