“Good family restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

Something to please everyone. The food is not fast food so bring patience and entertainment for the little ones.

“Family Favourite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

We have been coming here for years and our family loves it. We came with a big party last weekend and the staff could not have been more helpful (bringing extra ice for the kids, extra chips for the nachos etc). Meal sizes are very generous (wear your fat pants) and prices are really reasonable.

Cocktails were really good (one of the best margaritas I've had). My only negative comments would be that the courtyard could do with a bit of jazzing up and whilst they brought most of our meals out pretty quickly, my Dad had to wait a while for his after everyone else had been served.

“Used to be better - overpriced, average Mex food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

I used to love this place, and would visit regularly, especially for the nachos. After a recent visit however, as well as having been warned by friends of the recent change of opinion, I had to check it out for myself. Food took over an hour, to which none of it looked rather appealing, and instead just a mountain of cheese and slopped on toppings. Taste wise, there was no real flavour and sadly, I wasn't too impressed with this revisit. I've had way better Mexican, and for much more reasonable prices too.
On a positive, staff are still friendly and chatty...

“Never disappoints!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

This is by far our favourite restaurant to visit when we're in town. As always the meals were delicious and the Stonegrill was a hit. We had the mixed entree of Buff wings/Salt and Pepper Calamari/Con Queso dip and corn chips, this was excellent value! Fajitas were tasty as ever and the kids loved cooking their eye fillet on the Stonegrill. Still the best Shaker Margaritas!

We were very lucky to make a reservation as the restaurant was full. The service we got was fantastic, even though we could see the waitresses were run off their feet. We'll def be back!

“Don't Bother”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

We ordered takeaway from Ritzy Gritz on Thursday 2/1/14. I understand it's their peak season. We waited for over an hour. The meals were served in small styrofoam boxes. But the quality of the takeaway was about on par of your side street fish and chip shop. The owner seemed disinterested. There is a New Mexican Restaurant in Kiama, I think we'll be going there from now on.
