We decided to sit outside on a sunny winter day. We ordered a couple of sharing plates which were enormous. The service was brisk , but our experience was spoilt by the seagulls who stalked us and our food the whole time. I recommend that you eat inside!

Was told to by friends to meet here and what a great place, again right in the middle of the city close to the tram network and within walking distance to most hotels if you don’t drink too much. Clean Tidy and quick to get served.

I have been to this bar during the day and it has been so so. Had some friends who wanted to go to a place near Flinders St after a dinner and this bar came up. We tried to enter the bar and we were stopped by bouncers. They said we were not allowed to enter the bar because we were drunk and fixated themselve on an Indian friend in our party. Being the hindi new year he was not drinking but that did not stop the racist bouncers from accusing him of this. I was disgusted along with my friends, many who were guest from overseas, at this blatant piece of racist door policy by this bar and because of this I will never spend another cent in this bar and my friends from overseas will tell of the disgusting racist actions of this bar. It is sad that even in this day and age bars like this exist with their racist policies. Shame on you transport bar. You are unaustralian and a disgrace to our fine country.

Stopped in for a couple of pints after doing a river cruise. Waitstaff never came through to clean up after peoples messy plates of food, we had to clean up as much as we could to clear a spot. Even in all the time we were there, they still didn't collect it. Prices were as we expected, a little on the dear side. Bar staff were ok but not very friendly. Upside, it is in a nice spot overlooking the Yarra.

Great location. Bit expensive but that's expected. It is in the city. Nice atmosphere. All in all a good experience. I would go again
