We had a great lunch overlooking the river, accompanied by gentle live music (at just the right volume). The burger and Squid were good. I think chef may need to revisit the Thai chicken salad - lots of chicken, not enough salad.

The easiest way to reach this eatery is by taking the 'City Cat' to New Farm Park and walk for five minutes along the riverbank (downstream). It's located within the Powerhouse complex and has great river views. The staff are friendly and the place was...More

We went for lunch with great expectations of being beside the river. We ordered a cappuccino while waiting for the lunch menu to start, but it was a mistake: milky, thin, flavourless. When will Aussie coffee makers learn that a latte/flat white with chocolate is...More
