I suppose one should not expect too much from a $12 meal but the Caesar and chicken Caesar salads were tasteless.... Three pieces of fried French loaf did duty as croutons the bacon was soft the chicken straight from the freezer(?) was tasteless and the dressing was hohum.... I get the impression this is primarily a bar which opens during the day to try to help pay the rent. My recommendation would be to eat somewhere else there are many options at Darling Harbour

Had lunch here on a Saturday. Although the place was pretty busy, the staff where great. Food came quickly and although the menu is limited at $13 with a great view, real value for money.

This place is on the front of darling harbour. There are lots of different bars along there but most of them are quite pricey. We just wanted something cheap and cheerful to eat. It doesnt have a wide variety but what it does have is lovely flavour..i had the steak in a bun..its cooked there and then..yes u can watch them if u want.. Hubby had burger.. The portion sizes were huge and the food was scrummy.. Very relaxed too..
