“I love this place.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2013

Very nice and cozy place. I enjoy Hello Sailor. Relaxing place with very good and excellent food. It is also a nice spot for a drink. This place is in a lovely neighborhood in Lower Main in Observatory. Lot of internationals. Great value for the price.

“Quirky Obs Local”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

We like popping in here for a quick breakfast or lunch if we're nearby. Not fancy, but good, wholesome food.

One of my favourite little restaurantsin Obz. Stunning food and a great vibe. Very relaxed and friendly, with amazing music and decor. The burgers are legendary.

“Good Food, Good Prices, Comfortable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

I think this is a hidden gem in Observatory. We were in town for a week and ate here a few times, each of the dishes was good and at a good price. The staff was friendly and joked around if you sat at the bar. Try the loaded fries (chips), they were excellent. There aren't many seats so get here early in the evenings. For those people who are micro-brew fans like myself, they have a good selection of bottled beer, not just the typical beer at other restaurants (try the Dragon Firey Ginger beer, quite unique).
