A Lovely, but Lonely Lunch

We purchased a voucher online, not quite knowing what to expect. Our expectations took a dive at first sight, because the outside dining section looks rather tired and in need of a little TLC. However the inside dining area looks clean and inviting. We chose to sit outside, to look at the... read more

I would like to start by saying thank you to the chef. Your food was fabulous. My partner and I tried four items from the breakfast menu and were impressed by the portions, flavour and fresh ingredients each time. Secondly the coffee's are great. BUT... why oh why are you taking such a great little place and running it in... More

Recently we had breakfast at the restaurant. It was well cooked and presented. The bacon was crispy and the eggs cooked to our liking. Thanks to the chef Reuben. The wait staff, Vanessa who hails from Canada and Anja from Germany were pleasant and efficient. It was an excellent way to start the day. We recommend a visit. We will... More

We had a voucher we purchased on line. Food was very good and the restaurant was virtually on the beach. Good value for money

Had breakfast here with the family; the food was pretty good (nice scones, muesli and breakfast wraps) but the coffee was a bit lacking in flavour (thought I was back in the UK!) Nice location right on Kings beach.

I dined here on a groupon voucher, I am an avid user of these as it let's me experience places I would otherwise not go to. Sadly I wish I hadn't in this case. Firstly if a restaurant is using groupon it should be to encourage repeat business, neither the food, atmosphere or service would entice me to go back.... More

It was so bad we couldn't stop laughing. Right from the get go it could be seen the venue was short staffed and not experienced. The place itself had an atmosphere that oozed disappointment, no patrons had a smile on their face and there was limited chat noise. The mango and crab entree looked great, but taste wise, well the... More

Groupon deal that was supposed to be 'three course modern Australian'. Three staff squabbling over how to accept the Groupon booking was the first issue. Peeling paint on the ceilings, rusty fans, and rusty salt and pepper shakers on tables. The food was equally as poor as the state of the restaurant. Beer battered fish that was oozing dark brown...

I have been lucky enough to experience this fantastic restaurant on several occasions and have never left disappointed. The service is really friendly and the food is always fresh and at a really great price. Children are also made to feel welcomed this allows for a really fresh, relaxed environment. I look forward to eating here again
