“An escape”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012 via mobile

I love the parrot . Its a little dated but at the end of the day its about the food. Good consistent quality and throw in a good wine and a giggle from the owner and staff and escape foR a while. We all take life so seriusly .... I personally enjoyed the paynes crossing wine which is hard too find ....

“Grubby Place not nice ambience food only ok”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012 via mobile

Dissappointing all round , service was slow and staff seemed uninterested, food fir the price was only ok even staff suggested to buy coffee elsewhere as they were hopeless on making coffee. Cheese platter was shameful what a waste of money they should be embarrassed serving that up to customers. Restaurant was dirty mirrors around walls , filthy carpet needed a really good vacuum and wash. sorry I went to the toilet as I could of lived without seeing the mess and dirt on way thru.on a positive 4 of us enjoyed our meal. Sadly the 8 of us that dined there won't be returning or recommending

“Fawlty towers is not dead.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012 via mobile

The owner is both Manuel basil and Sybil all in one. Most nights he's Sybil.
The restaurant has a certain flavor and the food another.
Certainly one of my favorite places and recently took the producers from channel 10 for a light meal. They want to do another serial based on the parrot
Do not get a lift home with the owner. Miranda police station is unpleasant at 3 am.
Entertainment value. 10.

“Terrible food and not a pleasant experience.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

We wasted our money eating here.
There were 4 of us , and the food is on mass , deep fried, meals were forgotten, the owner had mixed up all the table accounts, and he seemed to be drunk.
It was not a pleasant evening .

“Poor Value, Food and Service.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2011

The wife and I bght a couple of Spreets Vouchers for this restaurant. Voucher was for 2 entrees, 2 mains and 2 deserts plus a botle of wine off the menu.
Despite booking on both occassions there was no table set for us on arrival. The wine was not off the menu , but some cheap rubbish from Grays online. They then wanted a few dollars extra for every main on the menu. In other words they were not honouring there voucher, as it was not possible to order anything off the menu without paying extra.
Food was average, service and attitude poor. They seem to have a hard core of locals who they look after, as for anybody else they are not interested. On both occassions that we dined there, the owner manager was walking around with a glass of wine in his hand. I suspect he had been doing that since midday. there are much better retaurants to spend your money in in Cronulla.
