My BF had booked a table here as a surprise for Valentines Day. We were stuck in traffic (in surfers paradise) but called to advise we were running 10 mins late. When we arrived we were not shown to a table, instead we were shown to bench that was on the edge of the chefs cooking station. It was very disappointing as we had pre-booked and this was a special occasion. With the Chefs in front of us, the service area to our left and the cash register to our backs, this was a high traffic area and not a romantic spot what so ever! We asked to be seated elsewhere, we were able to sit at another bench, (although there was another table free the whole time we had our eye on!) I said to the waitress we had booked a table and that we had called to advise we were running late, I asked if our table was given away and she said 'no' but I think it was, why on earth would you seat a couple fr Valentines Day at a bench!?
Despite the poor seating to start off with we really did enjoy our evening. The costing is quite expensive if you are wanting to get a decent serve of food and alcohol so this is not everyday dining.
Our waiter was very lovely and he did well explaining the menu. We had the Charcuterie assorted platter to start, this was incredible and the ill feelings we had for the first 5 minutes of the night had gone out the window. We were drinking a Spanish Rose which was delicious, (cheapest glass at $9).
We then had the half chicken, the homemade sausage with white beans and the green beans side. All very yummy and satisfying. Despite the weird dining set up, the food and service is pretty good.
