Impressed with the welcome, service and range of food. The tapas options are excellent but make sure you get a side dish of vegetables.

Ordered a family meat lovers pizza and paella. Pizza arrived well before paella so husband and son were finished before paella arrived. Pizza was average. Paella was nice but was burnt and stuck to bottom of pan. All we were offered was $5 off. Very disappointing considering the wait.

We booked a table (08:00pm) for New Years eve and was told at the time of booking that we would need to vacate by 09:00. Note: this is the Normal close time for most restaurants in Nelson Bay!
The service was great, staff were helpful and even assisted each other.
Two of us went for a family pizza (thinking we would take the left overs for later), with another having chicken, mushroom and fettuccine.
The fettuccine was great, fantastic taste and a good size (although a little too much for 1 person)
The pizza tasted good but I could not say it was great. Luckily we ordered a "Family" pizza, in Sydney this one would have been a little smaller than a "Large" pizza and with the small amount of topping we had nothing left. In fact it was good the pasta dish was big, as we finished off what was left. (Please note: we would each, normally eat 2 pieces of a "Family" pizza! - maybe 3 for me when I am hungry).
The pizza was way over-priced for its size and toppings, it cost even more than a top quality Family Gourmet pizza would in Sydney.
