One problem after another. Went there because they had an option for vegetarian but when we when to order they realised it wasn't available for some reason. Then they couldn't get the payment system to work and then the order got lost. Finally got served about 45 mins later. Understaffed, poorly trained and no one seemed to care. Not a... More

A decent place to get together when all other places are full in the area. On our most recent visit one of our meals went MIA and even after asking three separate floor staff to check on it, it was never delivered. It's very noisy in here, too. Boisterous crowd. Not recommended if you need to actually talk to anyone.

This bar has a really good ambiance. There is inside and outside seating available. Wine list is reasonable and not over priced. There is a good selection of food and all was pretty good. Will return.

The wife and I stopped in for dinner tonight before a show at the Plenery. Great food & great service. I had the porterhouse steak, and the wife had veal and pork balls. We shared a rhubarb and apple crumble for desert. If I lived in the area, this would become my local !!

We went for a friends Bday bash and I must say this place was fantastic. It is a popular location so booking a table is a must if you want dinner. The atmosphere is fantastic and we enjoyed the live band. The only criticism I have is the waiting time for a drink but with the place being pack it's... More

Was here for a business dinner and drinks in a casual atmosphere. The service was slow to start with, but the waiter soon got the message. In general it was okay but given the small amount of patrons on the night, I think the service should have been a lot better. What would it be like on a busy night????

Good food, service was a bit slow but staff were very apologetic. Slightly loud to try & hold group conversations but loved that there was a bar with music located on the other side of the bar. All in all a great night had by our whole group

We stopped here for a drink and quick bite one afternoon while exploring Melbourne. We shared a couple of the small plates and it was plenty of food. The mini burgers were delicious! It's pub food with some larger plates available. It was $34 for a beer, soft drink and two small sharing plates. I thought that was good value... More

Dropped in here after work for a quick dinner. It was a Monday night and pretty quiet. Chicken Parma was terrific. Prices are OK and wine was cold so happy with the experience.
