The Staff are totally amazing and friendly and nothing is an issue for them. The Portion sizes of the Meals are brilliant. I ordered the Fishermans Basket and Breads for starters and I was well and truly Full. My Friends ordered the Pork Jaeger Schnizel and Chicken Schnitzel and they found room for Sweets. Apple and Rhubarb Pie and Waffles... More

Great little restaurant that doesn't try too hard to be something it is not. Great pub type food with a warm friendly atmosphere that caters for couples and families.

Just had lunch here. It was a weekday so was not busy and had no issue getting seated. Ordered and good came pretty quick. We got the burger, pumpkin salad and lasagne. All were good and pretty decent size servings. Dessert menu also looked good but were too full to try any. Definately one of the better places to eat... More

Went here for dinner on the weekend. Staff were very friendly and more than willing to take orders. Food was great, with big portions. I was unable to finish all of mine, but still enjoyed it! And veges are on the menu! Hello veges! Great little café for the whole family and very affordable.

Meeting friends for brunch. Booked a table for eight. Reservation staff cheerful. Not sure what to expect from this restaurant on Queen St. Not in a mall or residential area. I had The Lot for $15 eggs, turkish toast, tomato, bacon, hash brown and mushrooms. Substantial serving, well cooked. Others had raisin toast, cinnamon toast, turkish toast and jam. Coffee... More

Walked in to a beautiful garlic smell in the air which encouraged me to order pasta boscaola. I was very much looking forward to it, but I was very disappointed! The pasta was cheap dollar bag pasta and way over cooked! The sauce was runny and floury and just really bland! I have had way better from my home kitchen... More

Arrived to Essen for dinner, encouraged by TripAdvisor reviews. Must admit at first I thought we weren't in the right place, at least in the dark it looked and felt like a shopping centre shockingly yellow diner. Food was very good with huge portions none of us could finish. Although service was friendly, the waitresses seemed unfamiliar with the menu... More
