Our group had pork, beef and lamb ribs as well as steak and a veggie risotto. Clean plates all around! Only 1 veggie option but to be fair this was to be expected based on the name! Service was good. Blue cheese sauce was a good side to the steak.

We certainly got what we came for. Beautifully cooked steak with that lovely hint of charcoal and nice ribs with a rich bbq sauce. The pork ribs were large and meaty and left me well satisfied. Fries were chunky and well cooked. The wine list is extensive but a little on the expensive side. The space is large and modern... More

The food was amazing. We had not booked so took a table where directed which was in the line of the doorway which was cold, with a cold wind gusting through everytime someone opened the door. The food was good and prices reasonable. If you eat on the lower level toilets are all the way up the stairs.

I have previously been at this restaurant and had a great night out however last Monday was totally disappointing. My partner and I went to the restaurant on Monday night and were told that a table would not be available for at least 45 minutes even though there were 4 or more tables outside that could have been used. Finally... More

A sensationally prepared and filling meal. From the exquisitely cooked steak to tender skewers, very generously served. A great meal with great variation and options!

Went to dinner with a friend. Started with cocktails- choc coffee martini delicious! Ordered the ribs and a bottle of wine- the Langmeil SGM- a great aussie wine for $60 :) Everything with fabulous. The food, the staff and the price although higher than usual, totally worth the indulgence of it all! I'll be back! Perfect for a special occasion... More

Had a great meal we ride our luck with no reservation as it was early we were seated with no issues. The quality of the meals was excellent with the steak (New York) absolutely mouth watering. Food service was excellent but drink service was a little slow. Have no hesitation however in returning again.

Hi we had the steak experience as a red balloon experience. What you will not realise from the menu is that although there are two appetisers, mains and desserts there is no choice - you get both to share. This can be tricky if you and you partner do not like your meat cooked in the same way. luckily we... More
