The Capri Café has been an icon in Ballarat for decades. I was feeling nostalgic enough to have lunch there today. What a mistake! The food was terrible! A soggy chicken and avocado filo with mushy filling and a bad flavour was what was delivered. At $13.95 I was expecting it to be fresh and not just reheated in a... More

I ordered fish and chips. Ten minutes after ordering, this was plonked down (and... More
