Consistent good quality. Prices on par - not unreasonable. Good choices - even had happy fish eaters there.

My family and I have been frequenting this steak restaurant for the past 5 years, and we certainly have not been disappointed. The service and food has been consistent every time. The management are very hands on and the staff are always friendly and efficient. I would highly recommend for starters: the scallops, bone marrow and greek salad. For mains, the rump, fillet, sirloin and ribs are always cooked to perfection. Side orders of mash, rice, chips or baked potato as well as vegetables of butternut, cabbage and creamed spinach is delish! Desserts: their apple tart n ice cream, Ice cream 'n BAR ONE chocolate sauce and Bar One cheesecake is simply decadent. Consistency is key in this tough industry and their existence of over 35 years, speaks for itself.

Awsome food, some of the best ribs I've had. Friendly, on the ball service, a very nice setting, feel and view. A great place to go for a dinner with friends.

Turn and Tender has been a firm favorite of mine for years dating back to the 90's when they were a force in the market, smaller now but still just as good, food is served with passion and the menu is innovative, well worth a visit.

I was most disappointed with the experience yesterday. There was a power failure and while we were informed of this by the waitress we decided to wait it out and ordered a drink and salad. Well the drinks came but the salad seems to require electricity to prepare. Eventually power was supplied by the generator which management dont seem to have tested! Our order was taken by someone else and we finally were served with our salad and meal! When it came time to pay we had to wait for the computers to re-boot.It is very obvious management does not know what to do when faced with a problematic situation. Instead of seeing to the custermors that there were there everyone was just walking around chatting. I will not go back after this lack of interest in the customer! Obviously it is not important to ensure your customers are well looked after.
