I had previously been to Blue Zoo for a birthday brunch which was pleasant enough. After yet another trip to Mitchell park for my grandson - a great outing for the kids we thankfully sat down to a light lunch at Blue Zoo. Our lunch choices of a wrap and a salad with a kids choice for grandson were good.... More

We were looking forward to eating here, but could only stay fir coffee and scones. The coffee was very mediocre and.cold.by the time we got it. Worse was the service. Someone seated us and then walked away. No one for another 10mins, and it was not busy at all. Then we waved someone down, reluctanly being answered and order taken.... More

With ice cream melting into it. Mmm. Birds chirruping in the trees. The sound of delighted children playing in the park. The warm shards of sun breaking through tree canopy. An idyllic escape from the frantic world.

I love going to Blue Zoo, it's a wonderful family friendly restaurant in such a beautiful setting. Food is good, service is very good and location fantastic. Just watch out for the pesky monkeys who will try to steel your food if you dont watch out!

Food was tasty and had good options for kids to play whilst folks could enjoy a meal. Outdoor effect was really great. Besides the troublesome monkeys the place seems a good option for probably breakfast and definitely lunch

Three of us lunched at the restaurant in Mitchell Park. The smoked salmon salad was excellent with a generous portion of salmon and a fine fresh salad. The beef curry was rated excellent, living up to the expectations raised by the friendly Indian waiter. He claimed that he would eat the lamb curry himself and our experience gave us no... More

Seven of us had lunch there on Sunday. The restaurant was busy but we were attended to promptly, may be because we had pre-booked. The service was efficient and even the manager visited our table. The food was great and none of us had any complaints. Keep up the good image.

Incompetent Servers with no clue of what is expected if them, i blame management for extremely poor training. Beautiful setting, great playground for kids. Food is average but service is tragic. Im inclined to go elsewhere, where i don't spend the whole meal wanting something and unable to order it. This increases the bill total, thus increasing turnover. If you... More

Surrounded by the most beautiful scenery we were served poorly poached eggs on the driest thinnest English muffin I've ever tasted with what resembled a slice of highly processed cold meat (nowhere near the scrumptious sounding farmhouse ham). This was worsened by the sight of the burnt fried eggs on my husband's plate. I thought it highly offensive to set... More

Blue zoo is well positioned next to Mitchell park zoo and within the free Mitchell park. It had good shade and a kiddies area with child minders . I had the chicken pesto wrap and my wife had the vegetarian wrap, both were good. The pianist was a nice relaxing touch but I don't know when he plays. I also... More
