4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

Always great to go to a restaurant other than Spur where the kids still love going... and adults enjoy the food too.

“Family restuarant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

A great place to take the children. Lots of activities and playground amusement keeps the little folk busy while the adults endulge in the tasty food available. Bees are a problem here, but if you dont get stung by the bees, you might just when the bill arrives. Check it carefully as extra items have been added and only removed when pointed out to the waiters. Like I said, a nice venue for families with their children.

“Never Ever Disappointed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

If you want a regular 'go-to' where you know the service, food and ambiance is great - this is it! I have yet to find any fault with this restaurant, big smiles when you arrive, big delicious portions, their FISH is always good - hence what I have ever time and you always leave feeling 'soul nourished'! Great place to meet up with friends, for the kids to play - they just get it right!

“Children Play, Parents take a Breather”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

Great to entertain your children, while you are trying to eat. Lovely toilets for children, as well as a baby changing area. They supply high chairs. Area for children to make their own pizza. Staff very freindly. Great play area, both indoor and outdoor.
