Don't be fooled by the attractive interior, there is a reason why the last half dozen reviews for this place have attracted such vitriol. I could spend an age describing the failure to capture our orders accurately, the undercooked garlic pizza, the truly awful prawn and chorizo dish that seemed to have been marinated in dishwater. However the primary issue... More

Do not go here, waitress was really good/professional. Food I would not feed my dog with. Canterbury Ribeye med/rare was served well done and full of gristle. Ravioli no flavour, Salmon with lemon coulis and mint couscous - hmmm no mint and no lemon coulis. Beef Burgundian marinated slices, not sliced, full of gristle, what red wine marinade. Disgusting, tried... More

We called in for dessert after having a delicious meal at another restaurant. The courtyard was nicely presented as was the restaurant. We ordered our desserts but overall were pretty disappointed. They were overpriced, small ($8 + for two tiny scoops of gelato) and took quite awhile to come out despite the restaurant being pretty quiet. In hindsight we probably... More

Potatoes still uncooked, send them back and came uncooked again second time, no tomato sauce on the pizzaes, tiny portions, tiny piece of chorizo in the tapas. Way overpriced! Bad service, owner did not want to listen to our feedback on food, told us to be quiet and walked away, didn't give us any discount though everything was wrong, she... More

A very average meal where the food took ages and service was poor. The salad cost $24 and it was a size of a side salad. There was no attempt to recover the situation. They have the pizzas delivered from the pizza wagon up the road. Save yourself the hassle and get one there for less instead. We left unhappy... More

They also ran out of food options for us, it appears everyone else did to, so there is no learning from the management going on. The food it too pricey for what you get, and the standard not high enough for the lovely setting & expectations from people who have been here under the old management. We were served a... More

Food portions were small. Had to go elsewhere for food. Service was slow my boyfriend waited over an for a pizza whilst me and my friend had eaten our tapas. Prawns on the tapas menu- were the tiny frozen ones that you can buy in bulk at the supermarket. It was around $20 for about 5 prawns. Overall very disappointed!!!!

About 18 months ago we dined here and thought it one of the best places we'd ever eaten thanks to fabulous food, a great atmosphere helped by staff who clearly loved their jobs and were good at them. We returned for a special New Year's Eve dinner to find it nearly empty, though it was still too much for the... More

NYE 206/17 my wife and I were away for a romantic weekend and looking forward to a return to this establishment after a wonderful visit in June 2015 with great food and service on that occasion. Later investigation when questioning amused locals who had long since abandoned the place revealed a change of ownership had intervened. We walked in at... More
