The service was simply appalling as the waiting staff were not in the least but attentive, for example, they only had public holiday menus available, the main course arrived within 10 minutes of it being ordered and before we had finished our starter, I ordered a glass of wind that did not arrive, they failed to check on how we...

I have MS and am well known by staff at Quattro Country. My husband took friends there for dinner. At the end of the meal I had consumed half a glass of wine. After returning from the bathroom, the waitress accused me of being intoxicated. She did this loudly and so that neighbours and friends observed it. Our guests and... More

The service at this Restaurant is very poor. I have been there 3 times and each time the Service Standard has been consistent - poor. The wine is not presented, or poured at the table, just put on the table and help yourself. Water is not replenished. We waited each time nearly 50 minutes for our meal order to be... More

As a local of the North Coast and a regular visitor to Alstonville I am absolutely delighted to find that Il Postino is now under new management and has a great new menu and vibe to it. Last night a group of us popped into the re-vamped restaurant for Coffee and Desert (after dinner at another venue) and were Wowed!!!... More

Il Postino is a great place to catch up with friends for a quick coffee etc, but it is never my first choice for a meal. I have eaten there 4 times and each time with a group when someone else has chosen the venue. It is very noisy inside and not conducive to conversation. The food is very nice... More
