Thank you for your patronage and your time writing this review. Your rating is very much appreciated. However, if I may, I would like to briefly point out that our special prices are not cheap by any means and are available only at allocated times. They reflect on the competitive market in the precinct. In saying that, we do not... More

We have eaten several times at this restaurant and find the food well prepared and good value. We ordered from the blue menu page which gives up to 50% discount for "early-birds" and the wine is reasonably priced. We have had the same waitress for at least the last three years and she is always cold and indifferent which detracts... More

Had dinner last night and food was lovely. Staff were very friendly, and couldn't fault the service. Great location, with guy singing in the background. Had oysters kilpatrick and mornay for entree and they were delicious. It was our first time here, and we will definitely be coming back.

Went there last night, service exceptional, I think the young lady's name was Mel (it was on her necklace) . Had the special $76 for a seafood platter for two - how amazing - worth every cent and the Chardonnay was of excellent quality (I am an expert).

Had to rate this an "average" overall as the restaurant has ok food, but is completely ruined by awful customer service. Walked in the door and was urgently hurried along by the waitress to order. We asked for more time and soon after she returned and actually said "surely you've decided by now?" (We'd been there <10mins). One person asked... More
