Unfortunately this restaurant has closed down! I for one was sorry to see it go. Other branches might be available. Suggest you Google to find your closest branch.

We usually do the four ways branch for breakfast but opted for the clearwater branch this weekend. My first and very last visit. The breakfast spread was odd everything from milk tarts to chicken wings and pap. Then the ripped couches and chipped crockery just made things worse. Not to mention the helter skelter service. We were tended to by... More

Went to restaurant last night. Food was a horrible, cold, congealed fat! I asked for no rocket leaves in my salad just to find they added some frilly leave lettuce which I also didn't ask for, my husband had veal that was boil until it could bounce, grey meat with a gravy that was lumpy, mash was lumpy. My salad... More

I used to love this restaurant and would visit almost once a week. The seafood risotto was one of my favorite dishes as was the salmon. The menu was changed as was some of the recipes. Suddenly the seafood risotto was tomato based and tasted like packed soup. On more than one occasion the clams and mussels were not properly... More

So the entire experience was just too good to be true, almost as though they saw me coming and pulled all the tricks, it was just too good to be true. So, I did what I had to do.....you know... sneak back and test them again. Well.......2nd time around and the same amazing dining experience. The food was superbly cooked... More

This place had lost its appeal to me with the change of management. The restaurant was so much more welcoming with Sebastian and his team. The food quality is just not the same anymore , pastas specifically. This place used to have the best seafood pasta for my tastebuds. To be fair, the restaurant is not unpleasant, i was just...

The food quality is great , excellent wine choice , but the wines are a little pricy. On Mondays they have a great special on pastas , do not miss out on it.

The menu is as old as the options on it. Quality is however still great. Unfortunately they do not have a kiddies menu. Their buffet breakfasts on Saturdays and Sundays can be recommended

Probably one of the few restaurants that has lost its appeal to me. It's food has gradually gotten worse over time. With the pastas being blatantly frozen. Gravy being colder than it should for a hot meal. Even their steaks are quite shocking, with it either being too fatty or frozen and in one case being off. The waiters do... More
