“An absolute gem of a find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

We went as a large group on a Thursday night, and the place was busy. I think word of the great food is getting around! It is a set menu, but don't worry, there is so variety of food set out, it's not like you are stuck for choice. There is a ridiculous amount of food, so nobody goes hungry (definitely go there on an empty stomach!). The staff are lovely, very attentive and keen to assist. Even with a large group of 11 people, we were all served at the same time (unusual in a lot of restaurants!), and everyone was impressed.
I will definitely be going back!!

“Never fails to excite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2012 via mobile

This is the fourth time I have been to this establishment. Every time is better than the last. The staff are friendly and attentive and the food is always superb. Just make sure you go there with an empty tummy.

“Amazing Food and Staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012 via mobile

This is an amazing find in Margate or Brisbane for that matter.

The food is incredible. They bring you out 15-20 small entree plates to start with and you can have these replenished as many times as you like. All of these are delicious and are brought to your table very quickly.

You then need to decide on which meat you would like grilled and this is served with a generous helping of chips and corn on the cob. The chips are the best you will ever eat.

The wait staff are continuously refilling your jug of in house made lemonade, which is just delicious.

The meal is finished up with either a shot glass of home made ice cream or baklava. This is just enough to refresh your palate. Tea or coffee is also available.

It costs around $36 per head and is worth every cent. You will not be disappointed. Do yourself a favour and give it a go. Groups of friends are the way to eat there, as it's a great experience to share.

“Yum Yum Yum and Yum!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012 via mobile

15 entrees to start with and free homemade lemonade is just the start. Once the entrees are devoured you then go inside and choose your mains. Kebabs with seasoned chips and BBQ corn or pizzas with salad. Both are wonderful. Included is dessert and coffee. A wonderful dining experience in a very unassuming part of the peninsula. Make sure you are hungry when you go as you won't be when you leave.
