Being a local we used to go there at least once a week for lunch and a couple of times per week for coffee, since under new management food has really gone downhill and coffee is terrible. Worst of all they have taken my favorite dish off the menu, Moroccan prawn Tacos. Unfortunately we have had to find a new coffee and lunch cafe.

Attended here for dinner and food was great quality at a reasonable price. Would recommend the grilled salmon and the risotto as both were great! Will definitely be back!

Never expected fine dinning but did expect reasonable service and reasonable food - neither happened. Of the 4 mains options, by 630pm they’d run out of 2. Replacement option for one was Rump steak - when it finally came out it was over cooked, tuff and tasteless. Risotto was dry as well. The head waiter seemed to busy tending ONE table to help guide the less experienced waitresses which ultimately meant our table and the couple beside us were pretty much forgotten. I was going to give feedback when settling the bill but I wasn’t asked how everything was so I just didn’t bother. Previously know as Hardy’s Bay bistro, we’ve always had a nice experience when dinning there - the new name has unfortunately taken away the good food and good service.
Never again

This place used to be our go to coffee shop and restaurant. Since it was sold it has gone severely down hill. Such a shame! The service deteriorated and the coffee brand changed and, frankly, that was a mistake, I don’t like drinking dishwater. Waiting for 40 minutes for coffee when there are only three customers in the queue is, frankly, disappointing. Come on, Craig, pay some attention to your business. Please.
