“Not Impressed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

Was disappointed. Staff from Scotland and Sweden that looked after us. Lovely girls. But when I asked wss large to big there was no comment only try the large. I took half home.We ssked for a second glass of wine but did not see iit. Ribs were nothing to rave about. Not enough sauce and tasteless. Then down came the rain but no on came to help move us. I have a disability so it was awkward. Cost $50 a lge dish. Wine $8.70 a small glass.

“Average with a great view.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Went here on Sunday 10th February with family. Great service and the meals came out really quick. no complaints on our table. I had the rib fillet on the the bone done medium rare and it was fairly tender. The others had the lamb ribs which I personally don't rate.....pork or beef ribs are much better. Overall for the price I'd expect a bit better but in saying that, I'd go back here again.

“Not what i expected!!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

First time went to ribs and rumps, had high expectations and was very disappointed with the food. Ordered ribs and they were tasteless and hardly any meat on the bones. Staff were great very friendly and restaurant was clean. Wonderful location based on the water, lovely views.

“Massive portions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Full rack of ribs give you a dozen or more over a full portion of chips - this takes some eating.
At almost 50 bucks you expect either outstanding quality or huge portions, I wouldn't say the food is excpetional but it's good enough, this place focusses on the quantity.
Could possibly go with more BBQ sauce as well

Half rack and steak is also good and the onion rings on the side are really good.

Enjoy !
