Went here with a large group of friends a couple of weeks ago. Great bistro. Great for the kids. Lovely meals. Friendly staff. Does get very very busy though especially in holiday times. Must book. Will go again.

Large RSL style operation but the Roast Lamb meal with freshly cooked vegetables was very tasty and plentiful. Much better than an average pub meal and reasonably priced.

We visited Thursday before the World Super Bike eaces at the Island. The venue was very busy and we had an opportunity to enjoy a drink before a table was free. One of our group ordered an entrée which threw the entire table order outbif kilter. My medium rare porterhouse was left on the server long enough for it to... More

A must visit, great variety of reasonably priced food at excellent prices, the seniors meals selection of about six choices at $12 is excellent value, drink prices are reasonable, and the pokies can also give you a positive return if your luck is in.
