My meal was fantastic, the chicken Camembert I would highly recommend it and I would get it again. However, my girlfriends seafood risotto was truly disgusting. We didn't complain as we couldn't deal with talking to our very impatient waiter. Strange chap!

We ate in twice here and also had take away pizzas once. The food and service are both very good and the location on the Esplanade also very good.

We both had the Spaghetti Marinara and it was so very tasty and a good size serving. They were quite busy so it pays to book ahead. Service was friendly and efficient. Can recommend for a good pasta meal.

8 Of us went here for dinner, the steak was pretty tough, and the chips cold, and that was for 3 of us, and the kids didnt like the spaghetti bolognese. Very, very busy place, so a lot of noise, but not as noisy as Rattle and Hum.; That was horrendous

The food in this restaurant was good quality and tasty. The portion size was also good. The restaurant has a good location on the corner over looking the esplanade. We did feel however that the meals were priced slightly high for the amount which you got and the time spent in the restaurant as the service felt a little rushed.

Absolutely the best linguine I've had in a long time. The tomato and basil sauce topped off really fresh prawns and the serve was just the right size. Staff were excellent as well.

Great food and good service. The Lasagna was delicious and so were the pizzas. We had breakfast there each morning and the staff recognized us as soon as we arrive. Also dined several nights.

Brought a mate from Sydney here for a quick dinner a few nights ago. Excellent food, prompt service. A little pricey, but the food is worth it.

Unfortunately this restaurant has gone on the cheap. Just check out the salt and pepper shakers at lunch. Such a pity because it has a fabulous location but now I feel they go for quantity not quality. Acceptable if you can't get a table anywhere else. We had lunch and it was very average, maybe dinner is better.
