“Delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Caught up with friends over a drink and we all ordered the calamari. Service was prompt. Food was yummy. Parking right next door. Well priced. Great place to catch up for a casual drink and bite to eat.

“very average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

Contrary to the other reports i must say that i dined last night , and was not overly impressed, has declined in standards of food
very noisy large party of extremely intoxicated persons , just as well no licencing inspection occured , because would have been a breach of licence
Shrimp Cocktail price up , size down, handful of minute shrimps mixed with lettuce and sauce didnt even half full a 5oz glass, again using an inferior quality of shrimp to what they did use
Fish of the Day , was okay nothing exceptional, again prices increased and sizings also reduced , meals now smaller
Staff are always good because they use mainly European persons who are very pleasant , need a little training on what is on menu and wine matches
would i return..... no not in a hurry
