“Fawlty towers is not dead.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2012

The owner is both Manuel basil and Sybil all in one. Most nights he's Sybil.
The restaurant has a certain flavor and the food another.
Certainly one of my favorite places and recently took the producers from channel 10 for a light meal. They want to do another serial based on the parrot
Do not get a lift home with the owner. Miranda police station is unpleasant at 3 am.
Entertainment value. 10.

“Terrible food and not a pleasant experience.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2012

We wasted our money eating here.
There were 4 of us , and the food is on mass , deep fried, meals were forgotten, the owner had mixed up all the table accounts, and he seemed to be drunk.
It was not a pleasant evening .

“Poor Value, Food and Service.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2011

The wife and I bght a couple of Spreets Vouchers for this restaurant. Voucher was for 2 entrees, 2 mains and 2 deserts plus a botle of wine off the menu.
Despite booking on both occassions there was no table set for us on arrival. The wine was not off the menu , but some cheap rubbish from Grays online. They then wanted a few dollars extra for every main on the menu. In other words they were not honouring there voucher, as it was not possible to order anything off the menu without paying extra.
Food was average, service and attitude poor. They seem to have a hard core of locals who they look after, as for anybody else they are not interested. On both occassions that we dined there, the owner manager was walking around with a glass of wine in his hand. I suspect he had been doing that since midday. there are much better retaurants to spend your money in in Cronulla.

“Cold lasagna”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2011

Was served barely warm lasagna and got attitude when I asked for it to be heated up! Remember I'm paying for what's on the menu not what you can be bothered dropping in front of me. Poor unfriendly service, will not return and not recommended!
