Simply too expensive for a casual family dinner! Kids meals are a rip off @ $15 for 2 tiny strips of chicken & chips. My paella was $28 (special) which was not good value for a small serve. The kids enjoyed the indoor playground. Chicken Parma at $28 was ok!

A lovely busy restaurant across a whole road form the beach. Good place to begets. Meal before heading home after a busy day at the beach. Good kids menu and also a play area out the back for young children. Wine ok and excellent ice cream selection. Meals ok, large servings and can be a little expensive.

We simply popped in for a coffee but we're made to feel like absolute intruders for not purchasing anything off their menu. Such rude and pushy staff. On another occasion, I popped in to visit my sister who was dining there at the time, I basically got told to ...buy off their menu or leave.

We were a family of eight here for dinner. Staff were very pleasant although not very knowledgeable of the food nor wines available. Quite a big restaurant and while the service was fine the food was just average. More of a family restaurant although the prices are high for what you get. Gnocchi very ordinary although the pumpkin sage butter... More

Basic "pub style" Italian meals, average quality and reasonable in size but overpriced. Lamb was cooked to perfection. Gnocci ordinary and not tasty. Very slow to get meals although they were quite busy.

On a gloriously sunny day we stopped in Dromana for a late lunch. The service was courteous and prompt. The menu was not large but varied enough to meet all our needs. The meals were a good size, hot and very tasty. Atmosphere was good. Would visit again.

I just don't get the grilling your own meat on a piping hot stone. I ordered the salmonand it came out raw on the stone grill so I had to wait for it to be cooked before eating. Obviously with it been left on the hot grill whilst eating it continues to cook and by the time I was half... More
