Average quality food and poor service. Staff were friendly but seemed to lack leadership and direction. We had to wait and then ask for service.

My man & I called in after a big work week for dinner with no reservation. But still got a table & super friendly service despite them being busy. My steak was just cooked perfectly & I'm fussy with my steak being cooked the way I like it lol. It was a beautiful meal & served quite fast too

Not only did we wait 55 mins for our meal, but the steak came out almost mooing still when asked for med to well done. Let me just say it wasn't that busy. There were only 2 tables with people sitting at them near us. I asked if i could get it cooked just a little more so it wasn't... More

We haven't got our food yet but something tells me the worst is yet to come. This place is a joke. Prices are over the top and the service is as low as you go. So far our soft drinks taste like Old sugar soaked socks. Asked for water and got a bottle of Aqua Pura which they may think... More

From garlic bread, soft drinks and main it really was the cheapest produce possible at big prices! $7.95 for a low quality garlic bread $26.95 for Chicken Parma and once again frozen low quality snitzel. If they charged $5 for the garlic bread and $18 for the Chicken Parma you would be happy enough with the quality. No water for... More

We have eaten here twice now, and the second time only because we had a free meal voucher, and I wouldn't punish my taste buds by eating here again even if they gave me everything for free. The main reason it's a waste of time and money is the food, but the service is pretty abysmal as well. On our... More

This is the third time we have eaten here and, quite frankly, we were disappointed this time. In the past we have enjoyed good food and service. On this occasion, we ordered our meal as usual and when the steak arrived it was burned. Yes, we asked for 'medium to well done', but this was well and truely well done!... More
