Wanted a quick meal before an event at AAMI Park. Were running late due to traffic, so rang to let them know - not a problem. After eventually arriving 1/2 hour late we were greeted by friendly staff. I explained we needed to leave by a certain time so the waiter took our orders immediately. All the staff were friendly...

I wouldn't waste my time. I have been coming to this restaurant for 22 years and tonight was the worst I have ever experienced. Food was terrible, staff were so rude. It's was a cold night and the place was freezing. Very disappointing will not be coming back and really would recommended you not bother to waste your money!!

Needed a quick meal before the footy at AAMI Park. Very good service. The Red Wine Sangria was yummo. Pretty good food, too. Be careful with the sizing of the Nachos. There are regular, medium & large. Medium was absolutely gi-normous.

A scrumptious banquet with too much food - we had our desert to go! Great cocktails and Mexican beer. We hadn't booked but they were more than happy to shuffle and make room for us (I would recommend booking for a Saturday night to make sure). Great atmosphere and tasty food.

The food was ok but the service was so slow. The young guy told us 2 times what a great barman he is and that he has been in the industry for 10 years. Took our drink order and 15 minutes later we had to ask someone to get our drinks he forgot. Then he dropped a full tray of... More

This is a great place to have dinner straight after an AFL game, which is exactly what we did. Within easy walking distance of the MCG, the food was great, service good and reasonably priced. BYO wine as well, which is great.
