“Poor service”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

I understand that one needs to book a table in advance if you want to be close to where the children play. We arrived unplanned and were seated close to the walkway where a lot of traffic was around our table. We had to call the waiter several times and eventually called the manager because the service was so poor. The food was OK, but given the poor service, the entire experience was bad.

“A long wait and food was not great!”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We were hearing about this place and excited to go visit. When we arrived; we were told they are fully booked but most of the tables were empty. They did not have the capacity to fit us in. We subsequently waited for 45 minutes. The food was nothing to rave about - rather disappointing. We have not gone back again.

“Kids (and parents) paradise”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

The best restaurant in Joeys if you have kids! Amazing playground, good food and the best part of it all .... nannies that watch your children while they play. The kids love it and the parents love it too.
