Last night I went out with a couple of friends to the "restaurant" and ordered Crispy Chicken salad. They might as well have given me a supermarket packet of mixed salad leaves and few pieces of cucumber, with a table spoon of yoghurt sprinkled on top and a chicken that had nothing crispy about it nor did it taste anything...

Group of 5 visited here yesterday. Ordered 3 burgers, 1 pizza & 1 Parma. Parma was just a slab of chicken breast with what tasted like a store bought tomatoe sauce on top. When got into about the centre of the chicken it was virtually cold. The boys seemed to like to the burgers though. The wife had a margarita... More

I dropped in to have a coffee while I waited for my partner to finish her dancing lesson and I must say I was pleasantly surprised. The coffee was excellent. I dipped out on the cake. Coffee and cake is $10, all day, every day. I took a look at the menu, seems to show some imagination, prices are around... More

The food is great here and is at a decent price. Even when busy the service is fast and they are always friendly, have been quite a few times and haven't been disappointed yet. Coffee and cakes are average, but not bad either. Very happy with the food. Especially the pasta. Great place

Loved the ambiance and the food. The servers were really attentive and friendly. My burger "the slayer #hot" was totally awesome. Would definitely love to go again.

I must say I was very disappointed overall with this café at the Watergardens Shopping Centre in Melbourne. Whilst initially the service was ok, by the end of the meal we had to make signs at the server to order coffee, we then asked for the bill which didn't arrive until we had another "go" at attracting attention. As far... More

Had the overpriced Lamb gyros. More of the trendy disconstucted crap. The lamb cold and small serves of everything that would normally be wrapped up and warm, all laid out on a wooden chopboard for you to eat. Everything went cold in 5 seconds. At $28 a plate, will not be going back. The mocktail, overpriced too. The service good.... More
