My friends and I came here for a few drinks before dinner. They have a nice outdoor seating area. No complaints. The lady who served us was really nice and friendly

We ordered the seafood platter for $95. Not a lot of food for that price at all. I felt like we had been ripped off to be honest. I definitely wouldn't order it again.

Very helpful with gluten and dairy free options. Nice and friendly staff. Had activities for the kids. But let down by food. The food really was not flash.

This restaurant produced poor quality meals on two different occasions. Rare steak was well done, items from the dish were missing, some food was cold. The people were not very interested and seemed disorganised, got orders wrong. Not an enjoyable experience on either occasion.
