My wife and myself had lunch there for our anniversary. The staff were most helpful, the food ( chile prawn linguini and fisherman's basket) were excellent with minimal waiting time and the view of the marina capping of the atmosphere.

Come here for a night out dinner and drinks. No cocktails and no seafood platter. Service was poor. The good thing is location and live music.

We popped in on a Friday night for a quick dinner and loved this place. Well organised and laid out. It was very pleasant with a modern pub atmosphere. Our food was good and it was very relaxing watching the world go by from here.

What an awesome day. Food was brilliant and the entertainment was great. Sunday afternoons are always a good time for couples or families to come in and enjoy the entertainment or have some lunch

We are not sure if they have a formalised dress code but suspect they don't. However, most dress would be OK for the evening given that singlets and thongs would certainly look out of place in what's a pleasant dining area.
