Went for a special anniversary dinner on a Saturday, table was pre booked 3 days before so not a walk in. Started well with the entree but then a 45 minute wait for main. When it finally arrived my wife's steak was stone cold and had obviously been left for ages as it was tough. Her meal taken back but... More

Nice view, nice waiter but just a normal pasta, not really tasty. My friend ask for a pasta and broccoli with no cheese( vegan) and they bring pasta with a lot of cheese. Bah

We were out for our first date since having a bubs and the service and food made it all come together as a fantastic night. Everything was cooked beautifully and service was extremely fast for a busy restaurant. Very happy =)

My sister and I came here for breakfast. The staff were very friendly, and 9:30 on a Sunday morning was a good time to arrive as it wasn't too busy. It started building up closer to 10am. The service was quick and the food was delicious! I would recommend the eggs benedict, they were tasty and fairly good value for... More

We went here as the reviews made it sound really good. The food was ok, but the quality of the chicken in the risotto was bad. It tasted microwaved and looked like what subway serves. The person I was with ordered the fish of the day, which we were told was barramundi, turned out to be a flavourless tiny piece... More

The restaurant manager Thomas impressed with his friendly attitude and extensive wine knowledge. He was able to recommend wonderful wines to match our three course meal. We truly enjoyed our dining experience and are... More
