went for a nice ladies lunch on sunday. upon glancing quickly at the menu we decided it would do and hurried in from the heat. paid $24.00 for a cold sloppy panini with grey processed chicken pieces - are you freaking kidding?!?!?!?! processed chicken pieces? no grilled breast?? everyone else at the table felt the same way. one paid $24 for a fairly standard chicken pizza (yet again with the processed chiken pieces) and a pasta for around $27 which really may as well have been latina fresh. the only good part of the meal was the cocktails and the sweet potato curls. absolutely disgusted at the prices paid for such sub standard food. then we found upon receiving the bill that we were charged $25.00 for "SUNDAY LABOUR CHARGE" for gods sake move with the times perth. when we questioned the labour charge we were told "yes its only" $5.00 per meal" which apparentlys shouldnt have been a cause for concern. we should have gone to the tapas place next door which was newer, and offered a 3 for $21 tapas deal. in fact we probably would have spent less money if we had gone somewhere fancy. A complete rip off. we left feeling idiots for having yet again been duped by the high prices in perth for quite honestly... grey food.

I live in Perth, this is a tourist place but please don't judge Perth on this place.
Food- poor
Drinks - poor quality
Service - none
Price - 5 star for 1 star

Go anywhere else,

Didn't expect much here, but the food turned out to be very good, well presented and portions were enormous!
The setting for the restaurant is in an attractive place with a pleasant outlook. A bit of staff training might improve things and maybe boost profits.

I've dined here on numerous occasions but eventually stopped visiting because you pay for an overpriced meal which values quantity over quality.

Ok so living in Perth we should be used to being ripped off when eating out but being charged this much for a pizza really sticks in the throat! The positives, good food, good service, good location. But boy do you pay through the nose for it! A basic pizza is going to cost you $32 then you can add on another $5 if you go on a Sunday! Seriously $37 for a pizza for one! I' e had pizza in Rome,Venice, Florence, Paris, London, Melbourne and Sydney but this is the most expensive in the world! I used to be a regular when it was portifinos and not stupid prices but no longer sadly.
