The service, food and atmosphere were ok. At best a convenient pit stop in the centre of Victoria. I had a fish curry which was acceptable if a little dry. Curry plus bottle of water £15.

We saw this advertised in the local guide we were given so thought we would give it a try. We were greeted, or rather grunted at by a chap at the door. We chose a table and discussed the not so friendly locals. A young girl served us and was ok. I decided that I would like a plate of... More

Food was ok, but had diverted away from standard local food. Was a lot better 2 years ago. The lady that served us was friendly, but it took a while for the meals to come out. Atmosphere was good

Both my husband and I drove pass this restaurant a few times, and it was very crowded each time. Thus the last day of our trip, we decided to make a trip down to this restaurant to have our lunch before checking in at the airport for our flight back. The service was normal, the food was ok.

Dreadful lunch. We ordered fish and chips, thinking it would be a safe option, but then we waited and waited. People on tables near us, who had arrived after us, had received and eaten their meals and left. Trips to the counter to ask where the food was were rewarded with 'it's coming'.

Food just edible. Service average. Drinks are affordable. Just good location and place where can go wasted with friends but no emotional connection at all.
