“Great setting but otherwise....nahhhhh”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

We came here for lunch this week. Had calamari, which was fried in oil that should have been retired a day or so ago. This was followed by a prawn spaghetti for my wife, which admittedly was pretty good. However, I had a spaghetti carbonara, which was Just awful. There was loads of cream in the sauce and there were some strips of what was probably turkey "ham" floating in it, which tasted like cardboard and had the texture of latex. Carbonara sauce is a basic Italian sauce and there is no excuse for an Italian restaurant that wants to be taken seriously to mess it up that badly. Service was inattentive and slow. The only saving grace is the location. I recommend someone wanting a meal and a drink overlooking the yacht basin to choose one of the other restaurants.

“Just okay food - good service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Had an okay dinner there with the family , lots of choice, we ordered pizza which wasn't so good but my son had fish and chips which were better. Price was about what you would expect - service was very good and location is nice.

Dined here twice whilst staying at the adjacent Danna Hotel. Excellent food and service, food is well priced or cheap if your used to eating in Perth. Large menu with a great range of food.

“Great value set lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Don't let the lack of customers deter you. The set lunches, which offer a pasta at RM20, pizza at RM30, and a grill item at RM40, are a great value. I got the steak, which was a proper dinner-sized portion, and came with a perfectly dressed salad, soft drink, and a homemade dessert. Conveniently located to the cable car.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

An excellent place if you are up to delicious Barbecued stuff. I've been there twice and on both occasions, the food was good. There is a starter served, which is a salad and then the barbecued items. The barbecued items are served course by course. Among the items are chicken, sausages, lamb, beef and fish. And that is followed by a dessert which is warm pineapple. This is the least of my favourite but its not that bad.

Service is on a fair side but not too bad. This place is facing the Telaga Harbour and hence, the scenic view.
