“Value for money.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

We were pleasantly surprised after reading some negative reviews on other sites about this place.
It is located in "The Rocks" very close to the Harbour Bridge, and we were lucky enough to have a great view of the Opera House.
Four of us went to dinner using 2 scoopon vouchers for 2 seafood platters & wine. We were definintely not disappointed. There was a great selection of seafood, including Prawns Fresh & Crumbed, Oysters Natural & Mornay, Smoked Salmon, Pickled Octopus, Calamari & Tempura pieces. We purchased a greek salad to share which was plenty for the 4 of us. We had the choice of 2 different white wines, 2 reds or Sangria.
The background music was Latino and very easy listening. We were there quite early, and the live band was about to start as we left, but the vibe was very good.
The only negatives were that the service dropped off as the place started to fill up and some of the decor is looking a bit tired. However, it does add to the chachter of the building which appears to be one of the origingal buildings in the area.
It is not a classy restaurant, but we definitely got value for money and would go again.

“a pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2011

I had never heard of this place and was quite excited when we headed up the stairs. The place is in need of a lick of paint & a bit of a freshen up, and the stairs to the ladies toilet is "deadly" for the high heel wearers among us. But you know it was a fun place, we all 22 of us had a fabulous afternoon/evening. The staff were great and very affable, and most importantly not bothered by a bit of cheek & bravado that goes with 22 girls on a hens night. The buffet was lovely, im not a fan of buffets but the food was "really good".
The only down side is the slow bar service, dont get me wrong the staff were great they just could have benefited from a few more barman to make getting a drink quicker.
All up a great night was had by all!!!

2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2008

Sangria was the best I have ever tasted. Chorizo Sausage was a bit dry but addictively spicy. I enjoyed the Roast Pork, which in comparison can only be described as not as dry as the sausage and not as rare as the lamb. I had looked forward to the variety of salads that were available, however they tasted quite ordinary. If I ever go back, it will be for the Sangria.
