Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Spent a fairly ordinary bit of time at this establishment. Got plenty of potential and during summer would be a cracker, but on a wet autumn night - this was rank. Wet floor/ artificial grass, over zealous security and staff with no idea what was...going on. Ultimately, you can do better. But the potential has me curious and will no doubt have another crack in the warmer monthsMore

Nice food and service, good range of cocktails. Jerk chicken wings were amazing and the fish tacos were great. Loved the ambiance, the location and views as it really complimented the style of food.

Booked a table which when we got there didn’t exist. When we found a table to sit at, we were greeted with a thick layer of grease on top of it. In addition to the grease , the menus were covered in remnants of the...past 24 customers who touched them. My friends ordered the $38 fish tacos which consisted of 4 floppy tortillas which were thinner than my finger nail. Although there wasn’t a lot of fish included in the meal, the bits that were managed to be cold. We also ordered the sweet potato fries which they must have forgotten about when frying them as they came black with a side of carcinogens. Also smiling is freeMore

I had the Prawn Popcorn for dinner. It was delicious. The loaded fries were huge! Cocktails are always amazing and it’s a nice place for an afternoon on the deck in the sun.

We waited 60 mins for our 4 fish tacos before asking staff if they’d received our order. They somehow hadn’t, and we showed our proof of purchase before waiting another 20 minutes for them to come out. We also order 3 cocktails, 2 of which...we received and another which we had to ask for and show the receipt for proof of purchase. Overall it was disappointing we had to ask for what we had ordered and payed for. If we had not asked for these items, we would never have received them.More

Average food and service. The sweet potato fries resembled little burnt meteorites. When we questioned it with the manager he explained that was their “twice cooked” technique but he offered to bring some “soft half cooked fries as a replacement”. Strange attitude when they were...clearly burnt to a crisp. Don’t recommend you bring small kids here. Their change table is caked in dust and hanging off the hinges.More

We had a great Sunday afternoon here. Staff are friendly, quite slow to take food orders but are all nice. Food was ok, nothing to rave about and a tad expensive compared to other places but it was good. Pub style quality. Cocktails are not...good especially for an average of $18 each. Icy cold beer. Great music and beautiful views. Good vibe. Toilets are feral though. Bucket of prawns was nice.More

Rooftop Bar. We had a great night. Food portions are so big. Music was pumping with a great ambience. Staff extremely attentive and there are plenty of staff providing nice service. If the wind is up take a jumper as it gets cold real quick...once the sun goes down out on the roof top even in Summer. Bar staff very good and fast.More

What a great trendy little roof too bar, excellent selections of drinks and cocktails. Really cool atmosphere with great beach views. This is a beach bar and the music is pumping!! I wouldn’t recommend taking kids under 12 here as they won’t enjoy the atmosphere,...my kids certainly didn’t they couldn’t handle the loud music. However we had the most amazing host, I wish I got his name, he moved our tables to outside where it was slightly quieter. The advice here was great. Food: I’d rate a 7/10 the ribs and chicken wings were nice and we got the pork belly tacos which were under cooked and didn’t have that nice crunch pork belly should have, they were hard to eat because they were so chewy and sticky. We didn’t get to try the other tacos they may have been nicer. Would go back for drinks without kids.More

We came here as a large group ie more than 15 people. So we had a good mixture of dishes. In short the food was absolutely terrible. The ribs were dry, the chicken wings were not crispy and rubbery, chicken salad was awful over dressed...and had sinew. 2 of us ordered the pork belly and we took 1 bite and stopped. To the point of making you feel sick. Spending over $50 per head is a complete waste. I must say the servers were polite. I was avoid this place at all cost. I guess it maybe more of a drinking hole.More

Booked a table for 16 of us and was told we have to pay $20 for the reservation, but we get unlimited wings Bit of a cheek, but ok, we understand you have to guarantee patronage and a certain amount of revenue However, when you...have to wait an hour for those wings ( that's the only thing you have to prep and cook! How can it take an hour) and then be told the kitchen is closing at 9.15, how do you get unlimited wings! Not to mention we were then told they are closing at 9.50 and we will have to leave because it's not worth them staying open! We were all buying cocktails at $20 a pop, that makes $320 per round... how much are you paying your bar man!! We hear how hard hospitality is hit, how much we have to support our bars and restaurants, and then We're told to go and spend money elsewhere It's bad management The wait staff however were excellent, the food and cocktails superb, so no criticism on them at all... but sort out your managerMore

I dont think you would be comfortable. It gets very busy at this venue and could be a little challenging for your pup.
