Great music and good food

Good for a night out on the town. Loved the buzz. The venue is open and allows one to enjoy the balmy evenings. The music was really good and the service, fast and friendly. A good place to relax with the locals and ex-pats.

Excellent live band though a little bit loud to have a conversation. Service is good and the place has a nice atmosphere to meet up with friends and have a drink. It also has a restaurant, dancing floor and karaoke on Wednesdays.

Rude service, bad food and drunk patrons that roll out of this basic eatery in the early hours. This establishment is a nuisance to the entire neighborhood and cheerfully sends drunk drivers out on the road.

This place seems to be a bit overrated. If you are looking for a delicious lunch or dinner you should look for it elsewhere. However, in nightime this place comes to life with live music and dance. So for a late snack and a few drinks this is a good choice.

Loved the quality and size of the food - yum Staff very hepful and friendly. Massive screen for live coverage of sporting events was impressing. One can for dinner this time but will be back for a party

Classic locals pub; fine for a drink and pub grub - nothing exceptional. I was surprised how empty / quiet the pub was for a Friday night - Expected a big night out; left before 9pm :-(
