“Good food, good service, good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

Licensed, with very reasonable wine prices (cheaper than bottle shop!). Menu slightly limited in terms of choice, which meant that we didn't feel the need to go back again. We had garlic bread and the lamb shank both of which were as good quality as we had anywhere, and the service was also great. Puddings were nothing special. Give it a chance!

“Food average, pity about the service.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

Food was ok, pizza was rather cold by the time it arrived, however, it was tasty. The prawn dish was also tasty. Pity our waitress was unable to be pleasant, everything seemed an effort for her. The other waitresses were happy, chatty & smiling.

“Terrible food. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

My partner and I went for dinner. Ordered garlic bread for entree and both ordered carbonara for main. Garlic bread was soggy, quite possibly microwaved.
Carbonara was shocking. Bit of cheap spaghetti, uncooked bacon and very runny cream base. Almost mistaken for a bowl of soup.. We couldn't finish most of it but still had to pay full price! Very disappointed..

“Best in Coral Bay by a mile.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

It isn't too flash but its clean with good food and service as good as anywhere else in WA. Compared to the alternatives in Coral Bay, it's fantastic.

“Yummy pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

We went with another family for dinner at the cafe. Of course they asked if we had a booking which we didn't and it was right at 6pm when it opened. The place was actually already starting to buzz with a big booking. The server was very accommodating and made a table for 8 of us right there in the middle of the entryway to the restaurant area. We had some great pizza and one of the kids with us had a dairy allergy. The staff was wonderful and made sure not to use the same knife to cut his pizza as the one they used on ours. Good job to all of you!
