We went to a couple of other restaurants during our stay and this was the 3rd and most enjoyable. It was a whole package. The food was good, the price was great (we had the set menu), staff were lovely and you can draw on the 'table cloth' which was amusing. I noticed they have $10 lunches, I wish we... More

Come here on a fairly regular basis for a Friday lunch. Always very busy but even more so since they have a $10 lunch special, only wish they had a gluten free option on the special board. I can't go past the Vietnamese prawn salad. Great spot.

Good deal $29.95 for 3 courses. Food quite good but found atmosphere lacking. Background music obviously chosen by staff as too loud with some tracks definitely head banging, just not appropriate. Whole experience just not as positive as last visit 2 years ago.

this is a pretty casual dining experience. nice location in the main street, & if you can get on the balcony theres a nice view! our meal was nothing amazing, just your general restaurant feed. dessert menu however is quite exciting!!! all in all, a 'nice' night out.

All in all a decent meal. I wasn't expecting much, nearly everything on the menu is deep fried or served with chips. Some very odd meals offered as specials. When my steak arrived though it was hot & well cooked, all you can ask for really.

We had a fantastic dinner here. Luckily we'd made a reservation when walking past at lunchtime, as the place was full on a Tuesday night. On our table there was a chicken Parma, steak, and two pasta dishes and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the meal. We will definitely eat here next time we visit Albany.

This is a great restaurant, service is excellent. Timing is very important... This restaurant is very busy between 5.30pm til 7.00pm, especially during the tourist season. Always great food, the waitress's and waiters are very friendly and helpful. As a local to the area, can recommend this place every time! Have noticed reviews that were not kind to the service...

If you are visiting Albany, you have to have a meal here! The food is delicious and not too pricey. The service is great too. They are friendly and accommodating. We stopped for lunch there and would definitely go back. I would highly recommend this place - you won't be disappointed. If you have a bit of spare cash, try... More
