Friends and family visited. Killer. Prawn and loved it. The meal was great as we all had a different dish and this enabled us to try a variety of food which was very good

Three of us ate here on a Friday night. We were seated downstairs not too far from the fire so it was nice and warm. The waitress that showed us to our table wasn't very friendly, she put a board up on a spare chair and told us these are the specials and walked off. There were also no prices... More

My husband and I ate at the upstairs part of Killer Prawn recently with a group of about 20 others. We paid $24.90 for all you can eat pizzas. The staff were friendly and accommodating, they brought out garlic bread and fries quite quickly, and then the pizzas a bit later on. The atmosphere was good, although it does get... More

Great decorations, trees lights, solid tables and chairs. An air of calm filled the room. Good menu, seafood as well as the usual meats. I had the chicken my... More

Have visited previously and had an extremely enjoyable experience. Sadly, not this time. Upstairs at Killer Pizza a large group of us froze our butts off as the staff would only turn on one heater and had an absolute fit when we opened the door to let some of the heat from downstairs in. Service was slow and surly and... More

My husband and I took our friend out to celebrate her birthday and killer prawn was where she requested to eat. We had heard nothing but good things about the place and upon viewing their menu we thought we were in for a treat! We were sorely disappointed. We made an online reservation and turned up to the restaurant on... More

This is a great bar with the best bartender in town. His Yucatan Jungle Juice is lethal! The place changed ownership over a year ago but has very much kept the same already established style and formula going. I find the food always has been a bit hit and miss, which considering the prices is a bit disappointing. So if... More
