“Very accommodating”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

We had a friendly fun waiter who really made us feel welcome. Went here for lunch with friends and one friend ordered a little off the menu and they didn't charge extra for that. We sat outside and this place has good atmosphere to it. The only down side is parking in surfers.

“No Substitutions!”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

Generally a popular drinking venue, especially at night.
But if you want to order a meal and substitute mash potatoes instead of salad and fries...forget it! They will keep the salad and fries and charge extra for adding mash!
No amount of logic persuades them that they lose nothing by keeping a long time customer, that they serve mashed potatoes on some dishes anyway, that they keep the salad and fries...obstinate people.
So this is the attitude that prevails at this venue.
Actually, similar menu item is offered at another nearby restaurant with larger fresher prawns topping the meat...and no difficulty getting mash.

An excellent place to catch up with friends or to enjoy a lovely meal and a few drinks.

Service staff are friendly, ambience is average and drinks always served quickly and correctly.
