Don't go past the seafood chowder, but it is filling!
Great food and service. Great central location.

Called in for dinner before going to the Glen Miller concert.
Time was limited so we went straight to the main .
We ordered a seafood board for two and it was presented on a large 8x2 board,
It looked fantastic and tasted even better .
This really filled us both up and we would definitely have this again.
We will be coming back to check out the desert menu some time in the future.
Service and staff very good

Called in with a friend on a Wednesday during the school holidays. They were over half full but not with families - rather people out on their lunch break from work. The service was prompt and very friendly. The wine waiter was most helpful in offering us wee samples of three different wines until we found one that we wanted to order. The ceasar salad with hot smoked salmon was excellent. The egg cooked just right, the lettuce crispy, the smoked salmon beautiful and it was good to be served a ceasar salad complete with anchovies, although I'm sure the chef would have refrained from adding them if you requested. All up a very pleasant lunch and I will return.

This has a lovely ambience, staff are friendly and the Chicken Filo and Seafood Chowder are outstanding.
They make the best spicy tomato juice in town!!!
Only regret is that the menu hasn't changed.

very dark inside. Found it a bit pricey for the amount of food that we got. Be aware that if you order a drink you will be served doubles. When I complained about this they pointed me to a sign at the other end of the bar, indicating that doubles would be served unless specifically asked for singles. Not good enough
