Mixed emotions

We arrived on time and had to wait on the pavement outside for over 15 minutes until our table was ready, which was not the best start to the evening. When we were allowed in we were ushered into the back room, again a little disappointed not to be sitting at the front part of the restaurant... read more

I must go here once every 2 weeks - the cosy atmosphere, the decor, the menu that continuously delivers on the local favourites, the fact that it is BYO and has a decent bottle shop next door. All make it seem like a home away from home which is always an option when the question of where to have dinner... More

Service beyond inattentive and obnoxious. Such a shame - we tried it when we first moved in locally and forgave that experience as maybe a shambolic one-off. Gave it a second chance for a special occasion but 'service' -from booking to bill was so rude and neglectful it was almost comical. Not just our table, either. Anyway, three years later... More

All good really for an old style restaurant. Family run restaurant, Pastas. Fish and seafood all well cooked in 1970's style. I enjoy the food. Favourites are the sole and calamari, worth the visit. Pricey. BYO.

Excellent selection of pasta, and good fresh fish but on the expensive side. It's a bit noisy, but quieter at the back. The service was slow, not all meals for our party of 5 were served at the same time, and the cost of corkage at $5 per person seemed extraordinarily high to us for what is supposed to be... More
