“Melt in your mouth fresh fish”
Reviewed February 4, 2012

The service was a bit slow to start, whereas the first server (female) gave drinks menu but didn't return to take our order. Another server (male) asked if we were being attended to and when we said no quickly took our order. The entree arrived promptly and delighted by dining partner. Then took awhile for mains to arrive as the chef thought we had departed already. We both ordered fish dishes and the fish was so fresh it melted in our mouths. We were then being looked after by our third server who turned out to be the best, definitely the most friendliest and we chatted for quite a while. You couldn't beat the setting of the restaurant on a hot summers night but the service of some needs to be worked on. Price wise we thought it was reasonable.

“Hit and Miss - Easy to find better”
Reviewed January 11, 2012

I have eaten here three times, the first being exceptional, the last 2 being terrible.

The staff turnover here is stunning. Always new staff, always transients - backpackers and such.

The menu is appealing, the food is not. Service is not high on the list. Go to ManMo instead, even if you don't want Chinese. It's the one restaurant at Docklands that delivers consistently.

“Not worth the prices”
Reviewed October 26, 2011

This restaurant had all the potential to be good, waterfront, modern, reasonable menu. But unfortunately the service was well below average, untrained, scruffy waitresses.. you have to wave and wait to get service and the food was not brilliant either. I wouldn't go back again, the prices $30 main don't match the service and atmosphere.
