Nice ffod and service. It's good location, great for romantic dinners. They make a nice risotto. I din't enjoy the bruscetta for entree, the oil wasn't olive oil, and if it was, it was the most horrible kind I've tasted. But everything else was fine

We, a group of work friends had lunch here on 18/01/2015. We had downloaded a lunch menu just before going from their website. On arrival we were given the dinner menu and told to order from that and 10% would be deducted. The dinner menu prices were more than double the downloaded lunch menu. We asked to order off their...

We had dinner there on the 31/12/2014 with a table of 2. We found the following: - AC was not working well - Room was hot and we had to go outside (Townsville summer) - Red wine was served at outside temperature - Worst Shiraz I have ever had - Crocodile was tough - Mains were ordinary at best We...

Came here for a dinner 18/12/2014 with a table of 8. I had an entertainment book voucher and we thought we would try it. There were not that many tables, maybe 3 others. Ordered at 7.30, and we didn't receive our food until about an hour later, which is ok as we were all busy catching up, but still I... More

The evening started out well, 3 out of the 4 of us ordered Entrée and they were all very tasty and served quite quickly. Unfortunately everything went downhill from there very fast. Two of the main meals were fine, but the other two were a disaster. One order was Lamb Shank, but the meal served was actually Moroccan Lamb. We... More

Having dined there on numerous occassins we were very disappointed with our experience. The wait was too long even though it was busy because we only ordered a main meal. Cold food and rock hard vegatables was too much for my wife My wife was given a lame excuse and a hollow apology

A great breakfast with a choice of fresh juices, the service was good too. The location opposite the maritime museum and marina is convenient.
