Very, very poor service. Upon entering it seemed that the staff were more interested in their own conversations than they were in finding us a seat. After this it was very difficult to get any attention so we could place an order. My tea arrived on a chopping board; it was unmade, I had to mix the tea leaves myself... More

I had a ceasar salad with chicken and it was as good as it gets. The service was excellent and the atmosphere in this village café/restaurant is really friendly. Well worth a visit.

It was probably the best food in Brisbane that I tried. I have visited this place for at least 7 times and was very happy with the quality and taste of the food. Anyway, service was not so good - from "poor" to "average" in most cases.

We had dinner here while waiting for our daughter's flight to arrive. The food arrived quickly and was a big serving. I would go back.

Absolutely blown away with the quality of food. One of the best breakfast in the town. The only let down was service. We waited for about 10minutes just to order and about another half an hour for the food. The place was packed due to the weekend and we didn't mind waiting. Once the food was served we just couldn't... More

This cafe has a good selection of food on it's menu that changes seasonally. Service is usually prompt, however if they're busy expect to wait a while for service - both to order and once you've finished. Regardless of this I've eaten here a few times and found that if you aren't in a rush then the sometimes slow service... More

One thing I really hate is slow service on the drinks, if the restaurant owner doesn't realise that this is what makes his profit then he should shut the doors immediately, what a fool! Not only were they incapable of getting the drinks in a reasonable time the food took nearly one hour and it was gawd damn awful... all... More

I give Vagelis an "Average" only because the food was so good - and it is hard to please my son. We were in a hurry and only had a bit over 1.5 hours for breakfast. Plenty of time I thought. But no it took well over an hour before they realised we hadn't got our meals yet. And it... More

Vagelis is well placed on Racecourse Roard in Ascot. The venue is spacious and cool and very welcoming. The staff are attentive and prompt and very efficient. The wait staff took our orders verbally which was very impressive! The menu caters for all tastes and delivers very well. I have never seen a bigger more delicious omelet before. The coffee... More
