I stopped by late morning for coffee and a snack. Shine was bright and shiny inside and had cakes and alcohol on display. Time was when cafes served toasted sandwiches. Here I could only get an egg-based breakfast or plain toast and the menu and waiter were very definite that I could not have anything that was not written in... More

We used to go here a lot a few years ago and were extremely disappointed. The food was lacklustre but even worse the salad ingredients were not fresh.

Had there dinners twice. Both times with Groupon. Otherwise, it is not worth the money. However, even with Groupon the value is questionable. Service is poor. Interior is very poor. Deserts are extremely poor. Drinks from the menu might not be available. Beef was decent though.

My food was stone cold in the middle. The serving staff apologised and returned it to the kitchen. It came back lukewarm and they returned it again. It was obviously put in the microwave for a severe blast and came back extremely hot but was terrible. The cheese sauce was rubbery and disgusting. The food has definitely gone downhill! Won't...

Went here on a Groupon for steak & wine. The steaks were cooked exactly to order& were delicious with very good accompaniments. Service was prompt & polite & wine passable. A pleasant venue.

Been to Shine before and after the new management change. However, this new management has failed to keep up the quality and great service of this place. During the old management, the service staff knew you by name and makes you feel very welcome. Food served were delicious. Now, one feels cold when entering the place and just have a... More
