We all enjoyed the food, the range was good and the waitress was very helpful in sending something back that wasn't right. The thing that let's this place down is the firm no split bills policy. Who carries cash these days? and what difference does it make if the bill is paid by a few people as long as the... More

Food was really nice but was pricey, so were the drinks. Was also abit too loud, seems to be the singles pick up joint, not really for families.

Stopped in here for a light bite to eat - pulled pork stuff olive "delish" croquettes "yum" pork belly tapas "tender" and buffalo wings "spicy". The waiting staff are absolutely delightful and you could tell that this was all home made and not some "chain". Would definitely go back.

Great place to catch up with the girls for a drink and bite to eat. The bar staff just seem to have it all going on. They were fabulous. Gave desciptions of different drink choices - even provided taste test. Waiters knew menu and answered our questions. Laksa was the thickest laksa I've ever had. Way too gluggy and heavy.... More

I didn't eat here but it was a great place to drink after dinner. The bar is extensive and the bartender was so awesome. Showed me three different scotches (well, Tasmanian single malt whiskeys) until he found the perfect one for me. When I inquired about one of the beers, he poured me a little taster without missing a beat.... More

Easter Friday and we wandered here for a drink and stayed for dinner. Great choice of tapas, pizza GF options and bigger meals. Cocktails were great as was the wine list. Big outdoor area as well.

Went here whilst travelling for work. The food and service were decent enough but we have had better elsewhere.

We attended this restaurant for desert, just awful. Caramel tart looked like it had been thrown on the plate and the raspberry cheese cake had a weird taste - nothing nice to say about the food what so ever. The service however was really good, the staff were friendly and made the experience bearable. Overpriced, do not recommend.

This is a good place to eat, the food is very good and well presented and the staff friendly. There are plenty of wines to choose from. During winter there is an open fire which gives a lovely atmosphere.

My friends and I catch up here maybe once every four to six months, and whilst service has been declining (ridiculously long wait for food, surly staff, average at best food) the location is nice and it had become a bit of a tradition. However, meeting there will be a thing of the past. The 'manager's' policy of not serving... More
