Great atmosphere, friendly staff, incredible food and amazing cocktails we had a wonderful dinner and our kids loved watching the trains and boats out of the huge windows! Loved it

We went for the $10 pizza night - but did not realise that this was only available in the bar. They had a table booked in the restaurant but were very happy to move us back into the bar, without being annoyed. Thanks.

Easy to book, even with a large group. We received a quick confirmation and it was done only 12 hours before our booking. The service was great and food was spot on.
