OK to sit down for a drink only

To kill some time, we went to the Fly Bar as it was close to our gate and ordered some carrot cake and coffee. Service left a bit to be desired and the tables were quite dirty from previous customers.

This is not a great cafe Food was terrible, bad coffee and poor service Tables dirty, floors filthy and big massive blow flies dead and alive in the dirty windows. Come on people you can do much better than this. Just because you're an airport cafe doesnt mean you shouldnt have perfection. Melbourne is known for food culture and you... More

Very poor Staff forgot to put food on to cook. Had to enquire for it then only got half. Staff more interested in socialising amongst themselves than serving customers.

They gave my food away then argued with me that it wasn't their fault. Totally unacceptable. Took refund but will never go back because staff attitude appalling! No apology. Just "it's totally not my fault someone took your order out of the oven"
