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.

Do not go there to eat, food should be taken of the menu. Burnt rock hard and the worst I’ve had in a long time, do not bother trying it

I don’t even know where to start with this review. Our dining experience was an absolute mess. We were originally booked to go somewhere else however due to a water issue we were unable to have dinner there. We called the Envy hotel to see...if they could fit us in which they did. They weren’t very busy. We ordered as soon as the kitchen opened which was quite late at 6:30pm as did a large group of young men who ordered after us. After an hour of waiting and no update on how our food was going the group of you men went and cancelled their orders and asked for refunds. We stayed as this was our second attempt at dinner that night however after an additional 30-40mins of waiting we still had no meals or updates. One meal came out finally and we were told the rest would follow one behind the other. We waited and waited and some meals came down but were not our meals. Then the poor girl from behind the bar who took our initial orders came down to ask us for what we ordered again and said they would be starting the meals again. They obviously had meals from the young men who got refunds but our meals/orders got lost. We told her just to send down what food they had and we’d eat it. Some of our group had run a marathon that day and were struggling to wait any longer for food. The meals that came weren’t even close to what we had ordered. Chips on one meal were completely different to the others, there was no gravy on any steaks. It was a complete mess and at no point did management or anyone from the kitchen come to speak with us or apologise. They just sent the poor waitress to deal with it. We asked if we could at least get a couple of free drinks while we waited for our meals but we’re told no it was a different company. Utterly poor and disgraceful service other than the lovely waitress who was trying her best in an awful situation from Envy’s kitchen. I’ve never experienced anything like this before dining out and will never visit again.More

So many things to say but it is unusual for me to leave a place wanting to scream. Mostly i just mumble things and we never go back.. ( by the way we are NEVER going back ) Among the many lies is that they...have food and that they are a bistro.. - there is no food. And not much service. Customer satisfaction is not a priority and i am not sure what is. And that is enough. I will never go back and i am not recommending it.. enter at your own risk and experience. You may have a good time.. i cant and wont guarantee it .More

We have a young well behaved dog. Thought a quiet drink would be nice. Asked if it would be OK to bring in the dog and tie him up in the outdoor area out front. Barman said: "sure, no problem" So out we go and...tie him up, get a couple of drinks and sit. Dog is quiet, other people quite OK with him being there. Then a very officious lady comes along and tells us that no, you cannot have a dog in here, as is the case with ALL hotels. News to us. Can we at least finish the drinks we bought? "NO, you must leave immediately!" So, what about what the barman told us? "He was wrong and should have asked MANAGEMENT! PLEASE LEAVE. If that is the attitude and your idea of service, then you can find some other customers. All you had to do was apologise that the barman was mistaken, allowed the drinks to be finished and all would have been fine. But no, you had to be rude and totally unpleasant. To others - think again about coming here, since if that is the attitude it is sure to manifest in other ways.More

My husband ordered drinks at the bar and asked for a zero alcohol beer. He has various medical issues and can’t have alcohol. The barman said, “we don’t serve that sh*t here”. When my husband asked why he was told they can’t make enough money...serving it. I had a glass of wine, the only sauv blanc on offer, and it tasted like a $6 bottle of Glossips. Our friends drank their drinks, I left mine and my husband didn’t have one - all for the bargain price of $32. And to top it of, the manager more or less said don’t let the door hit you on the way out.More

Having been at the Envy a number of times, I decided to order the 200grm steak meal. While at $15 you expect that it won’t be 5 star. However the steak came out as thin as a “minute” steak and hence had no chance of...meeting my order of medium rare. It was Well done and tasteless. Hence I’m off to other venues wher you might pay $2 more for a steak but IT TASTES GREAT.More

I stopped in for dinner with my partner. They don’t offer a large menu - but what they do have is 100% delicious, fresh and very good value. I had the best chicken schnitzel I’ve ever had - juicy, freshly crumbed and perfectly cooked, served...with a delicious side salad, fresh fries and a lovely side of Dianne sauce. Honestly better than any Schnitty I’ve had anywhere! My husband had the chicken parmigiana and he loved it as well. The staff were all lovely and we can’t wait to come back! Ps. The security guard at the entrance made sure we complied with Covid safe check in requirements in a polite manner too :) Definitely check it out - we were blown away by the food quality!More

Fantastic value for money in casual pub setting. Meals are quite generous in size and all about $15 each. Great diverse clientele suitable for young and not-so young.

Visited the area with family, three adults and 2 children under 3 years. Wanted to treat my sister for lunch, and what a lovely treat it was! Staff were all friendly and polite, food was amazing (would recommend) and there was a $15 menu, which...had a vegetarian option too. There are all the covid-19 procedures in place, which makes me feel safe to be in a there! We will be visiting again!!!More

Was appalled at the way a group of males, and the apparent owner, “Rob” ganged up on & spoke to one of the musicians we were enjoying there. He was loud, threatening, quite abusive, and it was plain & simply uncalled for. The musician handled...it well, and I thought he was going to knock “Rob” into next week 👊 Rude staff, apprehensive patrons.. thumbs down 👎👎More

This is a lively bar that also has live music. Very busy and friendly with a good atmosphere. Friendly staff including the security guys. Good place to get a cheap basic meal but the food was very good.

This is a great bar offering live music. Upstairs there's a nightclub for those who love to dance. Downstairs serves decent bar food with great cheese pizzas.
