We set ourselves up here on the patio overlooking the South Bank Parklands with some friends and a large group of kids. We were able to watch the kids, drink cold beer, and chat amongst ourselves while the kids ran back and forth between us and the beach. It was a great time. The food was pretty good. The kids...

The manager and function manager (Jane) was extremely accommodating with our large group. A great venue to showcase our city to our overseas visitors. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon.
