Food was made to order but still delivered to table after only a little wait. Staff member was knowledgeable about the food being served and even went to ask... More

We came in for breakfast on a busy morning and were shown our table....That was the end of the service...No menus offered, no coffee order, no polite assurance that someone will be with you, as you can see we are busy!...No further contact...We sat by our lonesome for 25 minutes without any further acknowledgement or contact...It was like we were...

This was one of the few restaurants in Coolangata open for dinner in Christmas Day. Kids meals were good and large portions. Both my wife and I had the fillet and it was massive!

I can see why people may not flock here like Georges next door. The food is very fresh but portions for Australians are on the very small side. The seafood platter was $49.90 but had one minute bug, 2 oysters, a few tired prawns, some great calamari and 2 pieces of fish. Food was not good enough to rate this... More

Surprisingly nice and amazing. This little restaurant nestled between other restaurants and cafes was very good and I only can recommend it. It is not the cheapest, however the quality of food and beverage served is worse it.
