Omg, best breakfast ever. Bennie and pancake are the best and kick of side fruits refresh my palate. I would try these instead of no soul instant breakfast or careless hotel brunch. Cheers.

The Angry Chef (formerly The Saltwater) has a unique menu of restaurant favourites with something of a chef inspired artistic flair (think in house prepared ground chuck burgers with bacon and smoked cheeses). They also have terrific breakfast options and most of the sides and toppings seem to be prepared from scratch in house. Be aware before you go that... More

They may have changed their name, but not their style bless them. The husband is the chef, the wife the waitress ( with baby along for the ride). Breakfast offerings top rate,( at least 1/2 dozen benny options ). They've also found a way to resume dinner service ( Tue- Sat ) and it's worth checking out. Menu changes ~1x... More

Have had some of my best meals here, a family run restaurant with a great menu. Chef worked at Joe Fortes and uses local sourced ingredients and the portions are large. The breakfast is really great.

We went with another couple for New Years. The dinner--a New Years special--was very expensive.The food was okay but not quite as high end as we would have expected for the price. Then they told all the diners to leave at 11 pm! This was New Years. We paid a lot of money, expectingto stay for midnight.

Four of my friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our brunch here today. Restaurant is now called the "Angry Chef". You should know that they only take cash and don't be surprised if the owner/waitress greets you wearing a baby. Very family friendly. Not fast service but food is worth the wait. Large portions and food was hot, fresh and beautifully... More

title says it all...sad when you have to ask them to redo...not reheat..brunch because staff cannot notify each other that the order is up. In reference to Sean B review he specifically states that the restaurant was not open 5 times (mostly during LUNCH)!!! I would suggest Monttteee should learn to read the client's concerns before justifying and falsely accusing... More

Thank you for your review. I am happy to know your chicken waffle was AWESOME. We could not help but notice how you've rated all other restaurant terribly. However, we do apologise to you personally for not being opened 7 days a week, 24 hours a day to accommodate customers such as yourself and take away from spending our time... More

Well if our friend from the area was not with us we would never have ventured, nor found, this place. The four of us dropped in for a BRUNCH early July 2015, and we were all BLOWN away. A bit of a HOLE IN THE WALL location ... and they had the very BEST HASHBROWNS and Eggs Benny I have... More
