“Great Breakfast Pre 70.3 IM Food”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

Wonderful morning eating fresh and tasty food at good value. The reinvented church provided a friendly atmosphere and the staff were also accommodating and quick to serve. The provision of all the morning papers was convenient and the juice fresh. The poached eggs were not as runny as I like but the avacado and sides in the Vege breakfast was delicious. The bike rack out the front is a great idea and when the sun is out the outside tables are a really cool place to sit and watch the triathletes ride by.

“Good food, service ok...”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

Lunch at Friars is usually a fairly safe bet, but when t's busy it can take a while to get served.
Best advice when you arrive or book is ask to beseated near the servery - we never get ignored there
Great food, and good value get this restaurant past the post in our books!

“Overall happy but staff need to Prioritise their time”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

We arrived here with three kids at lunch time and it was busy. We asked for a table and highchair and the staff were great and accommodated us right away. We then were given menus and forgotten about... I know they were busy but there were plenty of staff on to assist. I asked one waitress to take our order after ten minutes she told me to "hang on I'll just clear this table. There were no customers at this table they had left!! She did this then never come back. We had to ask again then the staff member was unfriendly with us!
The food was good, they did make special sandwiches for my boys and my partner said his soup was really good. Ii had the lamb souvlaki, it was ok I wouldnt order again, it was a bit overcooked for my liking but had good flavour.

I would go back here but maybe not at a busy time.

“friendly service and menu suits”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

We usually have a mezze and coffee. This is just what we like.A simple meal when shopping. The menu though is varied and changes often and we haven't tried the choices. Always have friendly service though. The setting is interesting given its prior use, excuse the pun. Seating is varied here, upstairs terrace downstairs or outside whatever the weather, mood or time dictates. parking is adjacent for the visitor but watch the meters.
