I was treated horribly by the staff. Very rude, zero customer service skills. Toilet has run out of toilet paper and after being ignored by the staff for a long time, I was humiliatingly interrogated three times just to prove that I was a customer there before they placed "thick, brown, dining napkins" in the cubicle as toilet paper replacement....

Ate brunch in a sunny spot with 2 children and we all decided on pancakes which were very thick and well-syruped (?) With yum fruit compote and good coffee- what more could I want? Friendly staff and seating to enjoy people watching! However, bill had an item I never ordered and kid's meals $2 more than menu in front of... More

Didn't start so well with two beers and half the menu being unavailable. Pizza was pretty bland and a little undercooked. Worker dudes standing around talking rather than getting stuff organised. Needs a new manager.

Interesting/ funky inexpensive place for a quick bite across the street from the beach, Choice of seating includes coaches, at the bar, table, or a counter where you face the beach. Fish and Chips where quite good as was the pork, ham, cheese and pineapple sandwich. The best sweet potato fries.

Service was great, but our slow cooked pork sandwich was very disappointing. The pork was chewy and the very small sandwich contained no more than two very small pieces of pork with much too much condiment

We see this all too often in Sydney. Businesses in prime spots that get plenty of business from passing tourists so dont feel they have to excel at anything. The wait staff were miserable and we sat for 20 minutes before being served - it wasn't busy. Smashed Avo on toast ... My usual breakfast staple. This is the first... More

Can't say much about the day time business of this place, but it's a very cool place to have a light dinner and drinks. Awesome, laid back tiki vibe, great decor and great staff. The location is great with a view to the beach and excellent people watching spot due to the open front. The place has a great collection... More

Popped in for a quick lunch - I ordered the banana prawn and pineapple salad. Worst meal for a long time. Prawns were large but hadn't been de-veined - gross. Pineapple tasted like tinned stuff. I had to return it. Waitress very apologetic and took the price of my meal off the bill. Others in my party had a superfood... More

Went to this cool little tiki bar, it's just like Hawaii. Really relaxed feel with relaxing music and Vibe. We arrived around 4.30pm and our wait informed us about tiki time, that runs from 5pm - 7pm mon - thur. $10 mai Tai and $5 tacos, what a bargain. Tacos came out looking fresh and colourful and wow they were... More
