8 of us went to Joel’s for dinner. Only the fish and chips received favourable reviews. The pizza was not good. The lasagna was too creamy. Service was quite slow. Overall would not return.

Visited here for lunch and dinner during my stay in the Louis Fitzgerald hotel. Food was presented well and tasted great. Customer service could be improved, although it was quite busy.

Its about 4km so by car it's nearby. It would be best to reserve a table in advance we had to wait 20mins for a table.
