WOW we were absolutely blow away by this amazing restaurant / café. After catching a fish we were searching for somewhere that could cook it up for our dinner, we stumbled across 1018. From the outside we were unsure if it was a café, bar, etc but upon reading the sign realised it was a café so we ventured inside... More

We never ended up eating there cos when we called in to try it out no-one seemed interested in serving us (place was empty of patrons) and the menu was very limited.

This restaurant should be booked every night and it will be a crime if you don't enjoy the food here. The young chef is self taught and his cooking could rival any fine dining establishment!! The cesaer salad was stunning; the... More

My partner and I have been here for burger and chips a few months ago - which were fantastic - and then for a meal, which was one of the best I have ever had!!
