“Very mixed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

Went to the restaurant with my parents, husband and the in laws. The service was good although we didn't get told about the specials until we were about to order. I shared the seafood platter which was excellent, except for the fact that they forgot to give us the smoked salmon. I didn't realise until afterwards so couldn't even ask for it. Dad had the pork which he enjoyed and my husband had the steak which was also good. My mum had the chicken supreme. Very disappointing. Expected the chicken to come in a sauce but there was none. The chicken was also so tough mum had to ask for a steak knife. The waitress didn't even bat an eyelid at the request, as though it was completely normal. Maybe it is there. My father in law had the special which was sole fillets. The meal that arrived was so small it couldn't even be classed as a child's meal. Two tiny fillets. Again very disappointing.
So it was a very mixed meal, some parts excellent, others very disappointing. Probably won't go back again.

booked a work party for 16 people, adjusted booking to 10. restaurant demanded once we arrived that we had to have 12 servings. We had no choice but to agree. We were treated like children on a school camp, we were told off and threatened with being yelled out for touching plates early. The service was appalling convicted criminals at long bay are shown more service. When the bill came we were charged for 16 serves, even though we only received 12 and yet only wanted 10. This was theft with a napkin. I strong urge you to consider all other options, there is a reason why this restaurant was empty and McDonalds’ was full. However, the food was fantastic complements to the chef.
