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

The wait staff and barman were lovely and the dining area comfortable enough but the food was a bit of a let down - not awful, just ordinary and bland. Menu choices are somewhat uninspiring but do cater to the usual tastes in pub/club fare. We had a steak cooked rare as ordered and a whole sole, small and tasteless... More

Easy to find. Walk up Cavil Mall on the left hand side, cross the road and it's right there with a statue of a dog outside (you can't miss it). Good food and then go play the Pokies.
