I saw the sign announcing new owners so decided to give it another go after several bad meals there. Unfortunately it hasnt improved. Waiters nice. There was a scruffy guy clearing tables and making coffee who had cream cutoff tracky shorts on. No problem with that but they were absolutely filthy. No idea why he was there .... the food... More

Four for dinner on a hot Saturday night. Venue was fine despite the heat, and the place was generally about 3/4 full. Drinks were ordered, but took some time to arrive, and when they did waitress didn't care who ordered what, just started placing on the table. Food was ordered, and again, entrees took some time to arrive. They were... More

Dinner with my wife after a long day began with a lovely warm welcome in a relaxed atmosphere. We both had Risotto, Poseidon for the cute one and Cajun Chicken for me. Mine was OK and the seafood one was excellent. We will return as it is always good here.

On an extremely hot day it was so welcome and inviting we thoroughly enjoyed the ice cold Heineken! Followed by a delicious lunch with a nice cool breeze blowing. Staff were great and meals well cooked and nicely presented. We will go back.

A fantastic restaurant, relaxing atmosphere and delicious food. We were seated and served by the polite and attentive Andrea, who looked after us like royalty, despite a busy floor. My beef lasagna was to die for, and my friends Barramundi was superbly cooked and presented. A large range of deserts topped the meal. By far the stand out is the... More

This was the closest place to our hotel for breakfast, and near the bus stop for our trek to Lone Pine. There is a restaurant and a take out. There are outside tables. The take out area allows pets outside. Very nice personnel. We ordered the special breakfast wrap and coffee for $10. Good deal! The wrap was large with... More

Vagelis has become a destination of choice . We visit in many early mornings after a spin on our bikes. Lunches for fun and business meetings. Dinners with friends. And used their meeting room too. The staff are so welcoming, professional and friendly. Nothing is too much trouble. The food has variety and is excellent. I am sure the chef... More
