I'd have to say this has to be one of the best restaurants I've been to in the the two years I've been here in Mackay . The restaurant isn't huge but it has great a atmosphere the quality of the food even tho I've only eaten here once is excellent .

Probably the best customer service in Mackay. Our waiter was friendly, funny and very attentive. The food however, was burnt (oysters killpatrick) and overcooked (steak was ordered medium rare, was very well done). It was a real shame that we won't be returning as the restaurant itself was beautiful and had a nice, romantic feel to it.

Occasionally I eat here when staying at the adjoining Shakespeare International Hotel. I've always had a good feed. A couple of times I felt that the meal was overpriced (although still nice). Lately they've cut back on the menu options, but you will still find something to please you. The Chicken Kiev was the size of a football & melted... More

My partner and i dined here and really enjoyed ourselves. The service was great, food was amazing (could have been bigger meals for what we paid) but otherwise everything was great.

I wrote a review for this restaurant last year during which I waxed lyrical about the standard of the food and the creativeness of the chef. It was with much anticipation that I returned only to find that the amazing menu had completely disappeared and was replaced by a single page which offered among other things 'steak sandwiches.' My family... More
