“Excellent value and interesting food”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

The decor is classy and the outdoor area very attractive. We went for a late lunch and had terrific meals, the kids menu was way better than the usual. My 8 year old loved the blue cod, chips and pea main with caramel ice cream $12 inc a drink). I had baked Camembert which was smashing ( but rich) and other kids had a slider share platter. $4house wines all day every day! Charming service, good value and I will definitely come back.

“More pub than restaurant”
Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

This place has very cheap drinks which means it is overrun with backpackers and people wanting cheap drinks. I wouldn't recommend coming here for dinner unless in a large group that is a only there for drinks. We felt like food was an afterthought. Nothing really wrong with the food but atmosphere really bought this down
