My mate and I travelled there from Mackay and were very pleased with the meal. The veal was excellent and he enjoyed the risotto. It just took a tad long to come to the table but that was the only fault.

Great place to take the kids. Meals are huge and the quality is good. Staff were a little difficult to wave down at times, but didn't detract from the nice night. Loved the cheese foccacia.

Had fantastic food when we were here. I had half chicken & half mushroom pizza & it was lovely. We don't have to wait long for our meals & the staff were very attentive. Good pricing as well.

Passing through Townsville, looking for a place for a bite of lunch. They were largely empty because most of their trade is evening. Sometimes this means you get poor food or service, but definitely not in this case. My partner had a great seafood basket...More
