Nice dinner

My son took me here for a special dinner on a recent visit he had the signature seafood pasta which he enjoyed I had the garlic prawns which were also very nice. The staff did a good job the restaurant was quite busy and they were very under staffed in my opinion.

Ate here for dinner with family. Sat down immediately, although when asked if we would like table water, we didn't expect to have to pay for the bottle of water placed in front of us. Pizza, steak, pasta and seafood ordered around the table and all of it was very nice, particularly the steak. There was a long wait between... More

We've enjoyed several meals here in the last 6 months. We've really enjoyed the experience each time, friendly helpful staff, a laminated menu for our kids to colour and delicious food. A particular favourite is the Carbonara, but most of the things we've tried have been great. Don't rate the pizza as much as the other dishes.

We were told that there was this special offer: when you ordered a pasta dish you would get a glass of wine for free. We thought this was nice so we ordered. We had a mediocre meal, a glas of red wine and sparkling water. The food was mediocre. When we asked for the bill, the price of the pasta... More

Had breakfast here on two mornings. Excellent value, the staff were very attentive without being in your face. One waiter was very amusing.

Mainly Italian and European cuisine. Delicious food. Recommend the arancini balls with napoli sauce (entree). Try to get a seat facing the esplanade and the water. Great for people watching and enjoying the views. Prices are at the high end but the servings are very generous. Good to share dishes! Service is good and relatively quick.

I recently visited for lunch with friends and although the food was okay it was quite expensive for what you got ($22 for a pizza). We weren't dissapointed with our food but we won't be rushing back either. The service was a little odd & I got the impression the waitresses didn't really know what they were doing (it wasn't...

Best Pizza and Veal Scollopini. Great position and fantastic service. The night we ate here was during cyclone Nathan and it was wet and windy outside. But the food, drinks and service was outstanding. Thanks.
