We stopped in here for breakfast the food was awesome and the price was really good as well. All of the staff was really nice. I would have got a real bargain if I hadn't stopped and lost $10 on the pokies.

The club was quite good, the staff were friendly and helpful, although we did not eat here, the menu looked good and the prices reasonable, they have a small display of war weapons, which was interesting.

From the start we all knew what a big mistake we had made. the seafood tower had sounded delightful but was not on the in house menu. We settled on the sole but we were all disappointed. The food was was overcooked and left a sour note and we won't be returning.

We came here last year and thoroughly enjoyed it but we came again this year and we were a bit disappointed in the food which made us go out to eat at other places

Handy to all the shops and service quick and variety of dishes to choose from. I liked the $9 selections and portion sizes and the chance of having senior sized meals as well. No wait and staff attentive

Bistros are our thing and we found a good one at Surfers RSL. We went upstairs for dinner after watching the Super Rugby final in one of the lounges and it was so good that we returned for lunch a few days later. The lunch menu offers a choice of standard or small meals and we opted for the latter,... More
