“great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

the food was really good. the menu was massive, both food and drink. The one downer was that we were sat near the chef, a big group of us and at one stage we could hear the chef swearing at the waitresses

“Great food and great atmosphere!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

This place is wonderful. Their meals are yummy and fresh. Some items on the menu change too which makes it fun to go back. Their staff are friendly and sitting outside watching the street is really nice! It is not the cheapest place to east on Jetty Rd, but good just the same.

“Tasty, large serves and quick service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

The Strand has an Italian menu specializing in pasta and pizzas. It was clean and you could choose indoor or alfresco dining. We were served promptly and the food was cooked in good time and hot when served at the table.

I chose the Prawn Risotto and was not disappointed. It is hard to find well cooked risotto and The Strand’s was perfectly done. The sauces were tasty and served with 6 plump prawns. My wife likes clean, healthy food and chose the Poached Chicken salad and again commented on the tasty chicken. Both servings were quite large.

Prices were reasonable and we would return when we next visit Glenelg

“Great food but”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012 via mobile

Great food but if you change your order at all it will cost you ,can't swap chips for veg or chicken on pizza instead of Ham ,or many other things most places will let you do, they will do it but not tell you you the 4 small changes will cost you 12 dollars, no bread served ...service average ..very expensive especially wine its a cafe not a restaurant the prices should show this but doesnt, food is very good but portions are not large ..I wouldn't go back over rated and you need and expensive entree or expect to leave hungry .
