The food here is pretty good and very reasonably priced for what you get, which is "old school" pub food (chicken parma, burgers, etc). Service is OK, don't expect a smile or anything other then the food to be delivered to the table, and the plates to be taken away (when we asked for a knife and fork we were... More

This is one of the oldest pubs in the area, given all the Clubs around. The food here surprisingly was good and value for money. If you don't care to much about the furniture this is the place to go. Service was not excellent, but it wasn't bad either. For a value for money meal this is the p,ace to... More

We had dinner at the Dolphin Bistro last night and were very pleasantly surprised. There were eight in our party and we all enjoyed our meals. The prices are very reasonable, $15 for a steak, other meals were $12, drinks also reasonable. Our meals were delicious. The staff were very good too. It's across the road from Twin Towns RSL.
