four of us ate a lunch here and had a just average meal. the fish dish was simple and lacked any true flavor layering to make you want more. the pizza had a tomato sauce which lacked any depth. it may well have just come right out of a can. common' guys, show some passion for the culinary art.

Great relaxed atmosphere. Possibly a little bit like a bar for some. Service was quick, and confident. Drinks arrived virtually instantaneously. Kids were well looked after - kids menu, playground.

Went to dinner with a group friends who had varied views on the meal rating from a 2 to a 4. My meal would rate a little above a 3. The service was very good the delivery time of meal was excellent. It would rate at a 4 as pub food and I guess that is what it was,reasonable priced... More

You do not want to miss out on dining here! We went twice in one week because we could not get enough. Staff are great, the food is out of this world and they even have a play station corner and playground for the kids. One of the best restaurants we have been to anywhere!!

We were very lucky to find this gem. The degustation menu is unbelievably good value. It looks like a pub but serves gourmet meals at a moderate price. We were amazed at the different tastes offered...7 for $70!

Once a month (unfortunately)) this restaurant has a seven course degustation menu. The food exceptional, the wait staff aware of when your plate is finished and very quickly remove used plates (in my world a big plus). The food was equal to any fine dining restaurant. Not used to being pampered as though we were the only people in Port... More

We had dinner at this restaurant, and I would advise that the person cooking the meals needs to taste what they are presenting to the paying customer. I had the duck which had a sauce that was so salty it was practically inedible. I would not eat there again.

Came here more for the convenience as we were staying next door at flynns beach resort. Decent little play area for kids and a pretty roomy setup. It's a bit of an odd style bistro/pub. Got our order in pretty quick and food came out in good time. I would say the food is decent at best. Parts taste frozen... More
