Reviewed October 4, 2013

Waited over 25mins for a coffee, others got theirs before us...good atmosphere on the river but service needs to pick up!

“Lovely atmosphere & location - average food.”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

3 of us went there for Sunday lunch. Busy, vibrant on a lovely sunny day. Great atmosphere due to a wonderful location. Staff very competent, friendly and informative. Good wines by the glass.
Food - same as what you would get up the road at Westport Club for a lot less.
1. 6 hour slow roasted Porterhouse - very dull, small piece (about 12 cm long, 5 cm wide and 2 cm thick steak) served medium, even thought we were told medium rare. Was expecting something juicy and tasty for $32!
2. Tempura battered John Dory Fillets - 3 finger sized fillets of fish in a batter - not tempura. For $22 not enough fish.
3. Lamb burger - ok heavily flavoured lamb burger for $19.

“Rude manager”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

Been going there for awhile now. Bit pricey but love the setting. However yesterday was meeting some old friends for morning tea. Made a request to have just the quiche without the salad ($14). Was told you still have to pay the $14. I nicely suggested that was not good service but was told quite rudely, "nuh you're not getting it". It wasn't even the request denial that got me but more the rude response. Felt sorry for the unhappy looking staff too...no smiles, very glum. Here I was with my husband,in a wheel chair, suffering with terminal brain cancer trying to give him a break from hospital and this happens.
