The Mahi Mahi special was perfect - definitely a venue for a casual dinner with many options. Great service from the team

We called in for lunch on a sunny Saturday, and had no trouble finding a table. We chose to sit in the Bistro, and after looking at the menu, decided to check if the bar menu was any better. I was standing near the Bistro...More

The staff were helpful, however the food was only average. The menu was the same for lunch and dinner. The batter on the fish was heavy.

Yes it's just typical bistro food, but extremely over-priced. We got Fish and chips, chicken parmy which was very small and kids fish and chips (three tiny fish bites). The gravy is always too runny and we never have left there very satisfied. They could...More

10 month old daughter loved the other kids. $25 lamb rump with roast potatoes and blueberry sauce quite nice. Lamb medium and tasty. $32.50 grilled snapper special was tiny (estimate 75 g) overcooked and still smelt fishy suggesting it was 3 days past prime. Salad...More

Above average prices, well below standard food. Wagyu Beef Burger for $18.50 was a sorry excuse for a burger. For that sort of money one would expect a fresh bun not a defrosted one. The meat patty was very tasteless, and as it was only...More

Visited same time last year, the place was legitimately terrible. Someone has obviously seen the warning signs, with a changed menu and improved service making the hotel a viable visit for a meal. Have had the lamb rump twice, very good. Wife has alternated between...More

It's a nice outlook during the day. But at night the view can't save it, and you're left with ordinary pub food & sour staff. Showed up before 8pm for dinner, the place is 3/4 empty. Was asked snappily- 'Do you have a booking?!' No...More
