Pancakes 😋

Someone recommended this place for us otherwise we would not have found it. When they said they had the best pancakes it was ok we are there. When we got there a queue was down the street. Made our way to the front to see the very friendly guy taking names and told us there would be a 25 minute... read more

We went for dinner on a Friday night - the place was very busy! Service was exceptional and food was good. We started with the halloumi appetizer which was fantastic. It was a great size (you get 4 pieces of halloumi on top of a bed of salad). This could easily be a main meal for one person. We also... More

I have been here for dinner a number of times and it doesn't dissapoint. Everything we ever order tastes amazing. Im not a fish pie person but after the 3rd time of going I had to try it as its the house specialty, half the restaurant is always eating it, and it smelt amazing. It didnt dissapoint!! A beautiful selection... More

Have always enjoyed this cafe, but with so many great places opening up, these guys really need to up their game. They've become less accommodating, more expensive, and the menu doesn't reflect progress. Used to be a 4.5 for me, but it's now just a solid average.

Lovely meal. My daughter and I shared 2 entrees. Crispy school prawns and scallops delicious. We then shared the fish pie. I am glad we shared it as it was rather large. Highly recommend the fish pie as it was fabulous. Service was excellent. I would recommend booking as it was full the night we went. Fortunately we had booked.

Each course is a delight. Friendly and helpful waiting staff who are happy to advise and later follow up to check you enjoyed their recommendation. Informal buzzy atmosphere. My favourite Sydney restaurant by a country mile! Also, BYO wine makes dinner more affordable

Tasty and well thought out food! The waiters were knowledgable and helpful and the service fantastic. We had a 2 hour slot which was easily enough for us to eat three whole courses (we'd planned for just 2 but it was so yummy, how could we resist!) It's bustling and busy, not a place for a super-quiet night, we LOVED... More

I was told the fish pie is 'to die for'. Certainly is! But all the dishes looked great from starters to desserts. It's set a bit away from the main beach buzz but creates its own very well. Tables are well packed in so it does feel a bit cramped and it's quite noisy. But you go for that vibe... More
