There were 10 of us including children and we found the food to be of a very poor quality and we were not all served at once, with some waiting more than 5 minutes after the others received their meal, until they received their food. I would not recommend this restaurant as there are so many others of much better... More

We have been here many times with our 2 kids under 4. It's a nice location and food is reasonably priced. We made a booking this morning knowing the weekends can get quite crazy. We arrived 20 mins late, 80% of the tables were vacant,and the front staff was so rude, rolled her eyes, complained that we were late and... More

We were there to celebrate my mothers 89th birthday and wish we had gone somewhere else - overcrowded for a group with mobility issues, the restaurant had been advised at booking. Some of the food was good, however one of our party ordered the steak special which arrived over cooked instead of being mefium rare - for the first time... More

A beautiful spot by the river, even on a cold winters day. A diverse breakfast menu but I loved the Huevos Ranchos - beautifully cooked (i.e not over cooked) with corn tortillas, Mexican refried beans and chorizo and good spicy character - love the dish but not many do it so well.

We lunched here on a blustery cold Sunday, and as the cafe was full inside, we were offered a table out on the waterfront. We hesitated at sitting outdoors, but were pleasantly surprised and grateful to be offered a blanket each to rug up against the weather! (Nice touch) the food was very nice, the stand out was the lamb... More

We love it here, we had breakfast this morning for an early Mother's Day, it was our 3rd visit. We love the very comprehensive and varied menu, the prices are very reasonable, good service and a great location! The team there are very helpful. We'll go back..

We were there for brunch and the whole process seemed very focussed on getting us in and out. The food was probably top 50% for quality and originality, but not much more than that. The restaurant area itself was crowded and noisy.

What a waste of a fantastic location. The menu was uninspiring, service slow and the quality of food very average. Our waitress suggested the banana banoffee on a large plate of meringue which we all ordered, but the meringue turned out so hard and chewy (like gum) that we all left hardly touched.

This part of Sydney is starved for quality choices by the river but this is a great option to enjoy the river atmosphere. Good range of menu options and excellent value for lunch. And for those who are new to Sydney, a good chance to visit the Olympic complex to see where Sydney hosted the 2000 games.

Right on the waters edge - watching the boats buzz past - listening to the shrieks of children playing in the playground or the water features. Brilliant location - relaxing and unwinding. Great service - friendly and chatty even though so busy. Swift service - but not so much that you felt rushed.
