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.

Our experience all round was amazing. My partner and I came here for dinner for the first time since moving to Mackay! We were extremely happy with the customer service and most of all from our entrees, starters and main meals, they were so delicious! The meals aren't huge but I thought the price was fine because its not everyday... More

Food was absolutely amazing!! My problem was with the menu wording. For the average diner you would need a translator to understand the menu. Luckily we were staying the night at the motel and got to look at the menu in the room before hand. I had to google half of the menu so I had some idea what each... More

Have the most delightful experience for my first visit to Romeo & Juliet tonight. The pistachio crusted market fish of the day was to die for, perfectly cooked. The peanut butter and jam dessert was inventive and enjoyable. The service was prompted. The manager/owner, staff and chef were friendly and personable. I even had an unexpected complimentary dessert being a... More

Absolutely divine food! It is quite expensive however I am happy to pay for a good meal. I had the pistachio crusted Red Emperor with the most amazing salad! And my partner's steak was cooked to perfection. We also had the peanut butter and jelly sandwich for dessert (not as dodgy as it sounds) it was simply delicious! I wasn't... More

Ten of us arrived for an end of year office gathering of people, few of whom originally hail from Mackay and all of whom are very well traveled. The consensus among the group was that from hors d'oevres to dessert, the quality and presentation of the food was simply superlative. I am delighted that after having lived in Mackay for... More

The best meal I have had in Mackay was at Romeo and Juliet's. The menu is original and it is clear that the chef is trying something new! Some things required some refining but were delicious none the less. The desserts were to die for! The service was great - they did not have any of the wine I after... More

I came here for my birthday. The food was fairly nice but quite overpriced for the quality. Decor is a but daggy and dark. Service was alright. Nothing bad but not great either. There weren't very many of the wines on the list available so ended up settling for a terrible wine. Was expecting better from the prices and reviews
