Met up for a school friends reunion. Able to sit in one of the side lounges which was great...away from the music some could talk. Had dinner here too. Most of the meals served at our table were good quality.

After a long work day (with no food since breakfast) my son and daughter-in-law invited my wife and me to come share a meal with the other in-laws. I was famished and ordered two mains to be served about an hour apart. My first (the 'entree') was the salt 'n' pepper squid followed later by the linguine carbonara. My wife... More

I tried to go to this bistro on a Friday night but, there was no table. It was packed and some people were waiting for the others to finish their food , so they could sit. That's how popular this restaurant is. I tried one week night again. It was still busy but, we booked in advance. Beautiful food. I... More

Recently my partner, myself and another couple dined here and all I can say is it was a horrible experience. We ordered The Salt & Pepper Squid and “The Schnitty” which both came out luke warm, rubbery and the coating was soggy, as if it had been cooked earlier in the evening and left sitting in a bain-marie. We also... More

I have had many a meal here due to the fact that the food is always great and reasonably priced. Never had a bad experience. Staff are great too.

The dining room is deafeningly loud, the ceiling is one big echo chamber and needs some dampeners or tapestry or something, eat on the deck if you do go. The chicken schnitzel I had was under-cooked, so avoid it, at least I wasn't made sick though. The staff are straight up rude, I wont call out names because I probably... More

Lovely restaurant area with small kids play room. They have a 'function' room that is directly off the main dining but still private and away from the masses. The salt and pepper squid is beautiful and a good size meal. Staff are friendly behind the bar as well as the restaurant. Always happy to help. The spacious decks are very... More

Kids portions were massive, adult meals a little slow but not awful, food was divine. Visited with a large family party and ordered a range of meals from pasta to steak. They provided a highchair and I had room for the pram. Would visit again.
