Thought this would be a nice spot for a dinner for 2. Booked early afternoon for an evening dinner, once seated realised this was just another pub style venue. The menu looked impressive to the eye but we have had better food at our local pub. T shirts & baseball caps were the attire and as my wife and I... More

Dined at restaurant for dinner on a weeknight. Service ok and food average. No WOW factor. Terribly cramped and humid. Unlikely to visit again.

Located right near the water this is a great place for dinner and a few beers. A popular weekend venue and frequented by business clients throughout the week

Nice bar restaurant set on the buzy harbour restaurant precinct, with big indoor and outdoor area. The menu was simple but a good choice of staple pub favourites, staff friendly and attentive checking on whether I was happy with each course. I had the salt and pepper squid which was cooked well and tasted great. And had the sirlon steak... More

Everything else we ordered was okay, nothing out of the ordinary but the wings were undercooked with barely no sauce or seasoning on them. Was very disapointed when staff didn't seem to care abort the bad food review. Will not be visiting again.

We came here for a birthday dinner in February. Garlic bread had no garlic on it Muscles for main were unbearded Sweet potato gnocchi was plain and flavourless tasted like it was out of a packet Even the chicken schnitzel was ordinary with the garlic cream sauce seemingly having no garlic in it. Eat elsewhere

Not to long to wait on the food and both times have not been able to fault it. The staff are very pleasant, helpful and welcoming and if... More

Was sucked into this place by a friend and although the food didn't look great I went for the easy one: fish & chips! Well, it was the worse one I have ever had... all I could taste was the bad quality oil. The French fries and tartare sauce saved the day, how can you go wrong with those anyway?... More

Beautiful meal with friends today. Atmosphere and bistro fittings superb. Marinated chicken salad and sweet potato gnocchi I was told was great. My seafood mezze plate awesome. Needed water bowl but seafood so fresh and delectable. Loved the experience and will return very soon. Fantastic menu choice and each meal leaving kitchen looked divine!
