Hey Guys
If you work here or own this place you need to go back to basics...ie you changed your menu recently and the way you charge......not a good idea....have you noticed your regulars are not quite so regular anymore.
Firstly your old menu was much much more better for example Chicken Fetticine was a great menu staple now Prawns and Chorizo is trendy but not allways what is wanted especially on a week night, your steak dishes have also changed the old favourite with spinach and bacon has now been tweaked and its main accompanyment is asparagus!!!!! not everyone likes Asparagus! once again a more trendy ingredient OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOh . Also have you changed Chefs as the Garlic Bread is now either still great or depending on the night not great at all.
And last but not least with your new way of charging ie charging now for everything as a so called extra ie Prawns on top of the steak and any other veggie apart from Asparagus!!! has now added an average of $10 to $15 to each persons bill....a bit rich is this enviornment. We now alternate your place with a great hidden Gem just down the road and cheap at half the price ....maybe you need a bit more competition....this will come in time then maybe you will return to your roots!

Very casual, laid-back atmosphere which is warm & welcoming. The service was good but a little slow. We had high expectations of the steak after reading the menu as the first 2 pages are dedicated to showcasing the quality of their steaks. My partner's steak was perfect, he shared some of his with me as mine was horrid. Totally full of gristle, and well done instead of medium rare. The redeeming factor was the waitress noticed my steak was not eaten & asked if there was a problem. When I explained why I couldn't eat it, she was genuinely surprised & apologised profusely. She went & spoke to the chef then came back & offered to deduct the cost of my meal off the bill.
The offer & her reaction assured us that it was an anomaly & has made us more inclined to dine there again.

Been to CY many times, food is fabulous, very attentive service. Staff even personalised desert we bought for birthday without having to be asked. Great selection of wines. Only downfall becoming too popular hard to get reservation.

You would get better more friendly service at Hakea Prison ! Don't waste your money at this place - they don't know how to treat people here.

Comfy pub style resturaunt. Open fire. Smallish menu. A bit on the pricey side $32-$37 for a steak but they use their own cattle. Could not fault the steaks. Very busy so you need to book
