I've been coming here for some time now. Yes it is expensive and yes the menu has shrunk over the years. However I'm not yet to find a better example of the Garlic Prawns anywhere in Australia and even Spain, which I have traveled to many times. This one signature dish is worth visiting the restaurant for and don't bother... More

Yes the place was packed on the Saturday evening we attended the Witch's Cauldren so it must be living up to its reputation. We were seated by friendly enough staff. From there the rest of the night turned out to be mostly a disappointment. The service was friendly but slow. We waited half an hour for our entrees. Mine was... More

We went to this restUrant with my son and his partner for an evening meal. It is very well set out as the tables are set in little booth type settings. I had the garlic prawns to start followed by the sharing seafood platter. Both were excellent. The young girl who served us was very attentive so would say the... More

We had a large table of 15 just recently, staff were very accomodating and attentive, and even altering usual seating arrangments to suit us. Very much appreciated.

Dinner here a few weeks ago with my parents and the food was lovely. The portions were good. We had the garlic prawns and the starter size was just right with some vegetables. The service was good, with the staff being friendly and helpful.

Five of us visited this restaurant for lunch yesterday. As usual their food was gorgeous. The staff are so friendly and helpful. I had the most delicious Espresso Martini ever. I've had them all over the world and this was definitely the best.

We had tickets for a show at the Regal Theatre, so when I booked I advised that we would need to be gone by 7.15. We arrived at 6pm, and the server acknowledged that we had a tight schedule so offered suggestions. All of us had the signature garlic prawns and they did not disappoint. I wish I knew how... More

After a lengthy absence from what was our favourite restaurant for many years, we returned recently to find that their signature dish, those famous garlic prawns, were now more like chilli prawns, the chilli that has been added completely overwhelms the once-wonderful sizzling flavour. And the battered whiting was more batter than fish. Rather disappointing.
