“Very helpful staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013

Function dinner for 20 so didn't expect too much - Nick the waiter certainly was a great sport and good fun. Plenty of food which was OK but not great - reasonably good value - service was a bit slow but not too bad

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013 via mobile

Ate here last Friday night while visiting Adelaide. Excellent food (huge servings!) and service. When we were seated we were told by our waitress that there's were longer than usual delays in the kitchen as they were very busy (it was packed full). Have to recommend the Squicken dish - salad with squid and chicken. Will definitely be back!!

“Bad food, bad service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

Served stone-cold 'hot cakes', to be given no apology when asked for them to be heated up. McDonalds gives you better quality food & service. Won't go here again, and will be spreading the word.

“Go elsewhere!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

Ate here with some work colleagues when staying nearby. The starters/entrees with the exception of the garlic bread were really quite good. The garlic bread was like cardboard and was missing one key ingredient - garlic! The mains were absolutely terrible. All the steaks were overcooked, the potato rosti was virtually unidentifiable and the pizza bases looked like they were straight off the supermarket shelf. At $33 for the steaks, I certainly expect more. The service was pretty good but that doesn't make up for the terrible food.

“Perfect Performance for 20 people"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

As we were visiting from the USA, my sister and I brought our cousins and their wives out for a celebratory dinner. In total there were approximately 21 individuals. To our absolute amazement, all 21 people were served with wonderful food nearly simultaneously!! A true feat!!! The food was delicious,the service impeccable.

We visited the restaurant five more times prior to our departure. Wonderful service, wonderful food. Well worth a visit (or 6)!!
