Customer service great however the food we received for the price would be considered overpriced by the majority. Salmon covered in tartar sauce which ruined a nice fillet. Seafood basket scollops appeared to be off ( grey inside) and Beer battered fish served in strips with little flavor. Obviously the chef's were kept busy Saturday night with the restaurant appeared... More

Had lunch here today celebrating my husbands birthday. He ordered lamb cutlets with salad and korma dipping sauce and I had the roast lamb. Both dishes were amazing and we struggled to eat it all. A bit pricey but was worth it. Would definitely eat here again!

The food doesn't set your world on fire, but it's decent pub fare. Staff were friendly, prices were reasonable and seniors prices appealed to the grandparents in our family group. Meals were served quite quickly after ordering which is always nice. We had a table overlooking the water which was lovely.

Arrived in town at lunch time and found this place crowded with locals (always a good sign). Got good prompt service and an excellent meal, so good in fact we came back at dinner time and again left very satisfied with the food and service. Well Done!!

The food was delicious. Worth the money, although the wait was a little long. The fun kids 'plate' and fredo frog entertained the kids for a few minutes. The lamb roast was tender and delicious. The chocolate cheesecake was decidant. It's a casual and spacious, modern eating area. Could have something for the kids to do.

Last week I reviewed the Argosy Bistro after a birthday gathering for lunch as being poor in food quality. This week I had occasion to attend another birthday lunch gathering of largely the same group. Due to the multible complaints about the food at the Argosy the venue was change to the Elimatta Hotel. GOOD MOVE. The atmosphere, surroundings and... More

We have had several meals here and it's always good. If you want a great view of the Mersey River you have to book a table, or eat later. We found if we arrive prior to meal time we could easily get a table, eat and be gone before the mad rush is on. A very busy place.

We started in the bar. There was a group with booming loud voices. They were so loud it was uncomfortable. At one point I left to get something out of my car. In the park across the road I could still hear every word from these guys booming voices. I guess that it not the fault of the staff. But... More
