Refused to serve me scrambled eggs on side with baked beans - something really frustrates me about restaurants that could easily accommodate the customer but choose not to. Spoiled an otherwise inoffensive meal.More

We ate here last night after remembering a great meal here last year. Unfortunately it wasn't the same. Mine was very dry and expensive for how much was on my plate. Melbourne has become so expensive for really just pub meals!

Such a nice spot on the river. Perfect place to grab a quick bite before a big day of shopping, or to let the day slip by while you enjoy the atmosphere!

Food and coffee were great. Service was appalling. Staff looking busy but not helpful. Missed numerous items. Had to get their attention to add to our order or get the missed items.
