We had friends from interstate staying nearby so wanted an easy place to walk to and have a meal. We enjoyed the meal, the service was a little slow but the staff were lovely.

Pleasant outdoor seating and good indoor area. Friendly efficient staff. Ok menu with something for most tastes. Moderate size and prices to wine list by glass or bottle. Overall enjoyed meal and ambience.

We had a good family meal with some tasty food.

For entrees the arancini balls were tasty. The flavour of mushroom was strong which was fine because we like mushroom but it is not everybody’s preference. The pumpkin ravioli was delicious however the edges of the ravioli were a little undercooked where folded over. No big deal as everywhere else was perfect.

For mains we had the gnocchi, pan fried snapper and a barramundi special. All three were very tasty and the plates were cleaned. My wife thought the snapper was a bit salty but well cooked and well presented.

The waitress was very polite and attentive however her English wasn’t great and wasn’t familiar with the term “Barramundi” (the specials board just had Barra). I am sure with a bit more time that won’t be a problem as she certainly tried hard to make sure we had a good time.

It probably pays to book in advance (particularly in the warmer months) to get a table on the footpath to enjoy the breeze and the street view.

Went for celebrAtion dinner hoping to find Italian restaurant as menu suggested. Bruschetta to start nice, then ordered spaghetti with clams, mussels, calamari and prawns but it was noodles,not pasta and not a prawn in sight with strange flavour. Sent back and in fairness wAs credited on bill, two pizzas ordered one pepperoni quite nice but prawn with chilli so hot as to be ridiculous and that was from a vindaloo lover.
Waiter did say chef was from Bangladesh but this restaurant doesn't know what it is and needs to decide.
I'm all for fusion food but at least advertise that.
Very disappointing.

We are locals so have been here for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I would skip the breakfast and lunch, it is underwhelming. The lunch however is great for the price. This place really needs to improve its customer service as it is a great location and venue etc. Great to sit outside.
