After work drinks here were rather pleasant. It is a small establishment one street back from the riverside at Southbank. There is a variety of Belgian and local beers on tap as well as a nice food menu. The Belgian Beef Burger was very nice.

Expensive drinks and poor food. Went there for a drink and attended a function upstairs. Not easy to find staff to serve you.

Settled in for first opportunity in months to catch up with friends and share a meal. Mostly things were OK. Had to use an electronic menu. Would have been easier experience on a tablet but more difficult on a phone. This was a covid precaution...and not a permanent feature, thank goodness. Our service was below par and food was variable. My partner ordered Wiener Schnitzel and from the description, sounded delicious. Result was paper-thin and dry. It was overcooked (and deep-fried). Coleslaw was far from the promise made. Our friend had similar result with her fish and chips. Again, overcooked, dis-coloured and dry. My medium rare steak was medium well done at best. Our lunch was disappointing, the edge taken off our outing.More

Ordered the chicken burger, 1kg of mussels and a tasting plate. Was hoping for some real taste in the mussel sauce, but is was not the case. Supposed to be a tomato, garlic and basil sauce, but only tasted of tomato. The service was ok,...and we found a quiet corner away from the loud speakers in the main bar area. The tasting plate could of had a few more choices other than some onion paste, bread, sausage and some cheese. Rather average. The chicken burger came with some onion rings heavily smothered in batter and deep fried. The burger was just some fried chicken in a bun. Nothing was really wow.More

We had our xmas party at this venue for about 100 guests. Excellent location within walking distance from Flinders Street Station. We hired the upstairs area and catered for finger food (guests paid for drinks at the bar). Finger food served on platters were awesome...and fantastic variety to go with the great selection of beverages available at the bar. Plenty of seating options. Had a fabulous time. It was easy to walk to another venue on Southbank to kick on afterwards.More
