“wouldn't go again”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

This place is just really average. If you want to go somewhere nice, don't go here. While individual staff did their best, others were standing around on their phones, people waited at the bar for a long tome to get served and trying to pay the bill at the end of the night was a bit of a drama. I wasn't that impressed and my friends and i agreed we would try somewhere else next time.

“Great Service, Great Pizza, Great Night”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

Up in Hanmer for the weekend and the other half was craving pizza so we popped in to Saints on Friday night. The place was busy and we hadn’t booked but a friendly waitress said she would find out how long the wait would be and luckily a table came free at the same time. It was happy hour and as we ordered our food before 7:00pm we got 10% off the pizzas and $5 pints (always good to get a discount). The pizzas were lovely with generous toppings and we had a large lamb masala and a large Moroccan chicken. Probably didn’t need the bigger size but it was a good excuse to take leftovers home for breakfast the next morning. We saw plenty of stone grills come out of the kitchen and they looked really good too, might try that next time. All in all a great night and we’ll definitely go back.

“Great Time”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

It was fun to cook your own Steak and Seafood on the sizzling slabs . There was plenty on your slab and it was well presented and very colourful. It was a fun place to be and everyone there were happy families aswell.

“A great place to eat!”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

We just went here for lunch so not sure what dinner is like. The pancakes were great - though could have had more syrups and cream. The omlette was the best I've ever had and all at a reasonable price - good coffee as well!

“Great meal with kids”
Reviewed July 15, 2014 via mobile

Popped in without booking around 5pm and the kids played pool while we waited for the food. The kids were also supplied with Kids activity packs which entertained then right through dinner. Great food with a huge range of kid friendly foods. Highly recommend for families.
