“Night out”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2014 via mobile

Overall a nice environment. Excellent, pleasant and timely service. However, overall the food was indifferent - more in line with our local golf club! My wife's salmon and my lamb was a bit overdone and the plates cold. In fairness to the restaurant when we observed the issues they deducted the drinks from our bill confirming the high level of service.

“Great for lunch when in the convention center”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2014

We were in town for a medical conference and had lunch there as they had specials for the delegates. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food. The porterhouse was juicy and properly done. The baramundi was very good with a crunchy batter yet moist and delicious inside. The burger was good but not worth the $20. The restaurant looks smart. Service was attentive and fast.

“If you want a private room, don't be fooled that three is one.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2014 via mobile

I had this booked by an agency, who had been assured that there was a room where a private meeting could occur. No chance, the walls were made of a mixture of glass and some sort of fly screen, and didn't reach the ceiling, so all the noise came straight in. The starters were good, but my duck was overdone and the service was patchy...at one point I had to go out and shout for some attention as no one had been to us for 30 minutes.
Normally I tip, even down under, on this occasion I didn't.
In summary the food wasn't good enough to make up for the poor service and inappropriate dining arrangements for our requirements. Probably OK if you want a casual dining experience with a mate.

“The best meat in town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2014

Go at 8 pm, sit at the counter and watch the chef's work. Ask for a marbled piece of meat and a glass of wine. After your dinner, take a walk by the river. Memorable!

“Best burger ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014

Walked into this place not knowing what to expect but where blown away by the quality of the food. My 13 year old son said that the salmon was the best he had ever eaten. My burger was the best I have ever eaten. You won't be disappointed if you eat here.
