“Such a shame!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

I wish I had read the reviews before going to this restaurant. Was a special occasion with an elderly relative and I thought the setting would be good. The food was drab, uninteresting, the chips looked and tasted as though they had been cooked days ago and just re-heated. No wonder we were almost the only people dining there!

“DONT GO!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

We bought a big breakfast and it was like a greasy spoon fry up for the price of a gourmet brunch. Had been there years ago when it was a silver service location. So disappointing. Will never return.
DO NOT GO!!!!!! I only hope the weddings being in their own catering....

“Avoid!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

We never got to eat as we couldn't get anyone to take our order. This place no doubt survives by capturing tourists visiting the Roma St Parkland, so doesn't care about repeat business. If you keep walking there is a cafe of unknown quality in the base of the apartment blocks about 100m in front of you, or you could go to the seedy and depressing food court at Roma Street Station. Either alternative would have to be better.

“Don't bother”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

Overpriced for the quality of food. average service. Waited ages for food after ordering then after 30 minutes being told there was some problem with it, then reordered and waited another 30 minutes. Half the table had finished while half of us sat there still waiting. chips appeared to be cooked twice and were lifeless and mostly left behind by everyone. Perhaps the location caters to the tourist rather repeat business. I work nearby and there are plenty of way better options. On the upside, the park is very nice and location is good. Perhaps a coffee or cold drink is a better option than planning a food stop. Final advice - don't bother.
