I had passed this restaurant many times while visiting the Shoalhaven, but this was the first time that it had been open for lunch as I drove by.
The menu looked very promising, and as we were a little early (they open at 12noon), we decided to continue on to Greenwell Point and return for lunch on our way back to Wollongong.
We were the first to arrive, and my first impression was that the staff had yet to clean from the previous night. There were food scraps still on the floor, chairs and tables, and the place looked like it needed a lot of attention.
The staff member who greeted us was not at all friendly, and seemed to want anything other than to have customers disturb her day.
As usual, we avoided the "Children's Menu" for the kids - (the standard nonsense of Fish/Chicken and Chips etc.) and chose an entree as a main and three mains.
The Smoked Chicken was overly smoke flavoured and close to inedible, the Seafood Rissotto was clearly made the day previously, the Grilled Fish was dry and flavourless. The best dish was entree pumpkin raviolli - but not enough to share.
I had to seek out the waitress in the kitchen to pay the bill on our departure.
A great disappointment.
Try the Greenwell Point Pub. The Bangers and Mash we saw ealier looked much better value.
