“Great Venue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

Had dinner on Sunday night with our adult daughter. Although we had not booked we were still very surprised to see that the restaurant was fully booked. This however did not cause a problem though as we could order from the restaurant menu and eat in the very comfortable bar area. The outside area was also well patronised. The staff were very friendly and the meal was lovely and very reasonably priced. We will go back again as it is a perfectly good local venue and we do like to support our own neighbourhood establishments.

“Newly opened restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

3 stars at the moment. It is a newly opened restaurant surviving on word of mouth. Parts of the menu appear to be highly priced. Staff I believe are still finding their feet. We werent aware we need to book. Atmosphere is good. I have been in for evening meals not lunch meals. I feel once they sort out minor issues you would see a totally different review.

“Feeling Robbed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

Sat the 29th June.My son had a Prawn Cocktail and a Scotch Fillet main while I had a Chowder and Venison Burger main. Im thinkin $100.70 was a little over the top.

“A little disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

We dined here on a Saturday night with friends. It was our first time here and although the ambience was good, the service and food was not. We ordered our meals and our entrees came out promptly unfortunately without a spoon for my soup which I had to get myself. We had to make room for the entrees as the menus hadnt been collected. My pumpkin soup had seeds in it, the other entrees seemed fine. Our mains arrived before the table had been cleared and then were the wrong meals, the waitress didn't seem to know the difference between venison and duck. We were then told there was a mixup and we would have to wait 40 minutes on top of the 40 minutes we had already waited! The waitress was confused as to what to do or as to even what had happened she later came back and said the meals would be 5 mins and not 40. The meals arrived, our table was happy apart from my wife as her medium well steak was full of sinew and undercooked or not consistently cooked.

We didn't stay for dessert and feel disappointed, particularly as they didn't check in to see how the meals were or offer anything for the mixup. We wanted to like this place as it has a cool concept, but are unlikely to go back for a meal anytime soon - good for a drink or pub snack.
