I've driven past this place a few times and always wanted to see if they had a "proper" steak sanga.... They did!! Tasted just like home, thanks Darren and Laura for this top little spot!!

“Like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2014

At least once a day someone from our workplace or home orders from here. When it's good it's great when it's bad it's OK. Just wish there was more consistency as the food tastes and is prepared different every other time. We also called to order one evening and was told "We are not doing anymore deliveries this evening, you will have to find another place" Would still give them shot as the food can be awesome.

“Return When You Can”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

It was a surprise to see an Australian restaurant on my trip so had to try it out..Meeting the owner was a bonus.The food was good with large serves and a variety of different national dishes,staff friendly and informative,atmosphere a reel "hoot" with Aussie theme.I had the Polish Porogi meal which was perfect to it's origin and the taste was right.The meals were not over priced with the restaurant being family friendly.I'd go back.

“Cute decor, nice service, OK food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2014

We took my two nephews here for a family dinner. The new owners have upped the décor with an attractive Australian theme, making it a bit nicer than the plain coffee shop it was before. The service was fast and friendly. The food was OK but "nothing special" as my teenage nephew said.

“They kept us coming back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014 via mobile

We enjoyed breakfast and dinner here every day we were in Port Alberni. My carnivore friend rated several meals as perfect. Not great choice for strict veggies but I'm sure staff would be flexible and the macaroni cheese was the best I've ever had. Very reasonable price. Very friendly, welcoming staff and owner.
