A second chance after the last disappointing meal. This time the meals were good. But two of five meals got lost in the silly docket system. We ordered in four parts (one coupe and three singles. Unless docket system could put us on a single order number but couldn't put all of us on one docket, so with four separate... More

Donna I appreciate your concerns for this gentleman and your support for him and his current personal issues. As you were many meters away your judge and jury approach to your review doesn't allow you access to all the facts and instead of a posted review i think a lot more could have been achieved by making contact directly with...

We thought we would try the fish as hadn't been there before and they had a special on steaks which we fancied. The service we found very sub gstandard, the meals terrible and the pricing on the menu quite bizarre. $5.50 for chips $11.50 for chips and gravy etc. Much better options throughout throughout Townsville

From the first moment we walked in the door everyone was struggling. I had to point out our booking after a couple of minutes of watching the staff look over and over the list, our table wasn't ready so we helped with that, we were told there would be a half hour wait on food when we came in then...

The young guys that are running this restaurant are friendly professional and know how to cook good food at great prices. Wish they would open up in Wangi Wangi NSW!!!

Staff friendly but could not manage a simple drinks order of lime and soda. The location was lovely but the food was not impressive - chips were cold and dry, fish and calamari looked and tasted like something you would get out of a box at the supermarket. $43 dollars worth of view and breeze.
