“Should have gone to the pub”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

I ordered the veal which looked like it was deep fried, and accompanied by some thick brown, gelatinous matter that I think was meant to be gravy. At least it was a large meal if that's what floats your boat. My partner's meal wasn't much better.
The service was ok, but considering there were maybe 10 people in the 'restaurant' so it should be.
$90 for 2 mains and desserts, so not particularly cheap.
Won't be going back. Pity, it's in a great spot.

“poor food and overpriced”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

stayed at the hotel nest to the restaurant so dicided to dine at the steakhouse, should have read the reviews first. Table not set when seated. The steaks were pink but dry, seemed as if the were slow cooked in one piece for 8 hours then cut to size and saered according to well done, medium or heaven forbid rare. Salad dressing out of a bottle so the simple Italian dressing of oil and vinegar ended up being sweet and a little jelly like. total bill for 2 steaks & 2 beers $72.80.
As hotel did not have breakfast we decided to have it at the steakhouse thinking that no one can muck up breakfast, soooo wrong. Bacon and egg ok but 1/2 rae Roma tomato with dried herbs not the thing to start the day with. I was going to have the STACK of pancakes until I was told that it consisted on 1 pancake (not in agreement with the Oxford dictionary) and it was cheaper to order the raisin toast, which was served with a motel portion of utter and a few wilted rocket leaves for colour . Cup of tea came out as a cup of warm water with a tea bag beside it and the cup which the coffee was in smelt of meat, maybe some problems with the dishwasher. there was a $3.00 p.p. surcharge for Sunday and the bill for that totaled to $24.70.
would not touch this place again.

“Undercooked food and poor Service!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

Stayed at the ajoining hotel recently for business and had one meal in this resturant. We waited far too long for our meals, considering the place was almost empty and then had to send it back because it was undercooked.

The staff attitudes were pretty appalling and one in particular was down right rude. Very over priced for very average food. Won't be eating here again.

“Good location but bit overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

Had dinner here on the 6th. Drinks were ordered just as we sat down and wee very quick to be made. Food ordered but one order was wrong but they were very apologetic and fixed it up straight away.

Shame the place is a little bit overpriced. Lots of potential for this place to become great
