We dropped by for a few beers in the afternoon and ended up staying for a meal.
The menu was interesting, incorporating the standard offerings, plus a few more interesting items. The Caesar salad was tasty and fresh. It's a big salad in a not so big bowl, so I'd like to have been able to mix it up a bit without leaving such a mess on the table in the process. I also thought the "prawn skewer" on top might have presented much better without the skewer. It reminded me I was eating imported prawns bought straight from the Woolworths Deli. I heard other guests making off-menu requests, and each were accommodated without any fuss.
The staff keep themselves busy, even though it was a quiet evening, and that overt work ethic really gave the place a professional edge.
