Have been before for coffee and for tapas. Always good.
Service is awesome, food is sooooo good. You walk in and it feels like home, relaxed, friendly and welcoming
Really great service and delicious breakfast food. Plus dog friendly!
The lemon pepper calamari was as good as it always is!
Good Food - Service only OK - Timing poor We were greeted well, and shown our table. Then left for some time, we had BYO wine and the glasses were on the table, but my teenage kids wanted a soft drink / Mocktail. After I finally gained the attention of the waitress this was arranged. The food was all good, but one meal came much later than all the others. That was even after our meals sat for some time on the servery under hot lamps, hence were overly hot on top and a bit cool underneath. Again, the actually food was good. Summary, service needs a bit of improvement, but food if worth trying. We will still go back.
The food was excellent. The noise level was a little high due to the wooden floor boards I suspect, but manageable. The young man who waited our table was excellent - polite and very helpful. However, I felt so sorry for him. There must have been at least 30 people in the restaurant and he was the only one serving apart from the person making the coffees. Hence the coffees and meals took some time. Then one coffee came out for one of us, followed some time later by another for my companion and mine was forgotten until I raised it with the young man. Not sure if there was a last minute problem with staff. We will try again.
Unusually had to wait for over half an hour for our food which, when we did get it, was not the usual moist fish we have been served on previous visits. We were also asked if we enjoyed our meal whilst we were waiting and said that we had not been served. She apologised and said that it would not be long...it was anothet 15 minutes after that. Patrons on an adjoining table were heard to say that they were not happy to have been waiting for 35 minutes. Today was a COMPLETE exception to our previous experiences and we WILL be coming back
Restaurant was very busy so I would suggest to make a booking, Very cold day so it was lovely to walk into a warm environment. Friendly welcome and excellent service. We all enjoyed our meals, Barramundi Special which was Gluten Free, chicken toastie, pork belly and lamb salad and a glass of wine made our lunch an excellent experience. Would recommend and we will go back.
The service was professional, friendly and prompt. For the Seafood Linguine, the pasta was cooked just as it should be, the prawns were firm and tasty, the fish delicate and flavoursome, the mussels were a little overdone as were some of the scallops. Overall a good dish. The Beef Cheek Ragu Gnocchi was melt in your mouth beef with a lovely sauce and soft pillow of gnocchi. This was a great dish. We will return.
Staff very professional, my meal was not as good as last time, it was a Risotto, the chicken was dry, and it was quite salty in taste, Coffee was good, my friends meal of smashed Avocado, was up to the usual good standard. I will return, but not choose the Risotto that I have had at a previous visit, because it was ok only.
