On holiday from UK visiting family, my daughter highly recommended the pizzas claiming them to be the 'best ever'. Well guys, thank you, your pizzas are pretty amazing. Feta and mushroom to die for and the vegetarian pizza (I'm not vegetarian) was fantastic. Good quality ingredients, cooked to order, reasonably priced, presented on a chunky rustic wooden board, and eaten on picnic benches on the container mall, awesome setting. When they rebuild, please please keep the containers, they are unique, it works and a reminder that life goes on and I hope they become a permanent feature. If I have any criticisim it would be the waiter/waitress aprons could be cleaner but I say this in the kindest way possible because I appreciate you are cooking, but maybe have a few spares! and a glass of wine or a beer would have been perfect to compliment 'fine dining street food' Well done, you have an amazing set up.

Great spot to stop for lunch. Their lamb pizza was great. Just wished you guys offered a recycling bin for glass bottles rather than encourage landfill waste.

Hey glad you enjoyed the lamb! Totally agree on the recycling - we are taking steps on the issue and will raise your point with the restart management. There are public recycling bins in situ but we need something much larger for convenience.

We hadnt planned ahead for dinner and headed into the centre hoping to find something casual open. At first we thought we were out of luck - but then there he was - cooking up a pizza storm. Hallelujah! Totally get the lamb.

Excellent pizza. Very reasonably priced. Picnic benches outside where can eat the lovely pizzas. Closes early. The first time we went to go there around 7 for dinner and they were closing up so it's a lunchtime spot.
