I think your review is a bit unfair, your glass wasn't re-filled because it states a glass of wine each not a bottle. If your groupon was out of date you DID dine for free because group on won't honour expired vouchers and yes you should of paid for the coffee. Review like yours can cost this business their livelihood. But i guess you showed them, didn't you?

Please advise how I can report the owners to Consumer Affairs & the Local Council. They are dishonest & do not deserve to run a business. Please post this on tripadviser RUDE SERVICE, TERRIBLE FOOD, OVERCHARGED From the moment you enter, you feel you've made a mistake. The father & son team are non-attentive, fat & slow and have a body odour that is nearly as bad as the food. We were served leftovers & advised that many items had run out as this was clearly not the case. The lamb was chewy & were charged $60 for a platter for 2. Wine that came as part of the set-menu, was never served, and a corkage of $12 for 2 bottles that we bought along. The owner was belittling with racial overtones & I felt humiliated in front of friends, as it was a special occasion that I had pre-organized with the owners. My rating is 0/10
