The decor is nice and the place looks pretty good. BUT they need something to kill the echo. It makes the place feel cold and unwelcoming. Maybe it is the hard floors or the big open plan areas. It is really noisy and that put...More

Medium Rump? Burnt beyond any flavour. Completely took over the meal it was so strong. I suspect the grill needs a good clean down to get rid of the charred build up! I like char grilled, but this went too far! Stick to fish and...More

Have had two bad experiences there before, but thought we give it a third chance before boycotting it altogether. Service was extremely slow, and rude. No effort was made to make up for our complaint of watered-down beer. They had Diane sauce for chicken Parma??!...More

All I wanted was a $7 bowl of fries. These took ages to come, and when they did there was no sauce of any kind. When I asked I got told that tomato sauce was $2 extra. Never seen that before - won't be back.

Beautiful renovations, looks like home! Food is amazing, though allow plenty of time to stay as the food can take 30-40 minutes to arrive, but well worth the wait and price!

Decided to try the $12 lunch special. Was amazed at the standard, the quantity and the choice. Great range of $12 specials, blackboard specials and then there is the standard menu. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Will definitely return.
