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

This lovely restaurant, which can be found in a motel, was quite a nice suprise. The service was professional and unobtrusive. The food showed the Chef has a passion for good food and creativity. I did think the prices were a little high, but it's Mackay and that seems to be how things are done here. Entrees were around $19-22,... More

Food ok but certainly doesn't match the price. $37 for an average steak and then $12 for burnt potatoes. $15 for three pieces of bread. Added together far too expensive. With some fine tuning and an appropriate price adjustment you could squeeze a four star rating but not like it is now.
