Nice food but very expensive. Not really worth the money unless you can eat lots of food! So starve yourself before you go.

While the burgers were not that great, the place provided a nice change in atmosphere to the south side of the Yulara resort. Definitely recommend wandering over for something a bit different.

Great concept, buy your choice of meat, stick it on the bbq (lots of grills available), nip to the salad bar while it's cooking. Has live music (Miss Max Music, fab voice) and a bar including takeaway bar
