This is the worst dining experience I have EVER experienced!! The food was inedible!! My partner ordered the big breakfast, the bacon was like cardboard there was no flavor to anything, he ended up eating one poached egg and left the rest. I had the pancakes with banana and ricotta... It looked like someone had vomited on my pancakes, the... More

I must say I would expect better at Crown. It took 1/2 hour to get a drink, we had to find our own water. Staff seem disinterested and many wander aimlessly. The food and drinks menu was overpriced and disappointing and took an hour to arrive. Duck was dry stringy and over cooked. The steak was dry. Expect better from... More

I understand it was a Saturday night, but the place was so noisy you couldn't talk. The service was slow and forgetful, having to constantly remind the server of drink orders. The food was average, some plates were good, but the Slow Cooked Ribs were dry & Bland. They also do not allow split payments on the bill so if... More

Our dinner consisted of a salad & a pizza with a glass of wine & a beer. The food was ok but certainly nothing special.Service was pleasant & we sat outside with a lovely view of the river & great atmosphere.Water was continually topped up which was very good. Nothing terribly wrong but really just an average restaurant experience.

Sunday morning breakfast was pretty ordinary. I was looking forward to a glass of fruit juice and an interesting muesli. Sadly no fresh juice offered and the muesli contained puffed cereal with some interesting grains and insufficient yoghurt for the amount of cereal. Poached eggs were perfect but the toast was difficult to cut into pieces. We enjoyed the coffee... More

We had a large group of 20 and met for a catch up. Inside is pretty noisy and not much ambience. However the food definitely made up for this! The service was great too.Primarily traditional Italian fare. Dishes in our group ranged from Lasagne, to Fettucini, Pizza and various Salads. The Cervo Salad was the pick of the bunch from... More

We ate here during our recent visit - quite expensive and whilst food was good, I didn't think it reflected the price. Wine expensive and again, not that good considering price. Fabulous location and I suppose that's partly what you paying for. Actually very busy, hence service little slow. Give it a try - it may be better on a... More

When at the Crown Casino you're either buying at the food court or paying exorbitant prices in the fine dining restaurants. Cervo provide a happy medium where you can get nice Italian food at a reasonable price
