It had been a while since i was last here and i will not be returning. $10 cover charge at the door ??? What for ?? Bad music,EXPENSIVE drinks and highly intoxicated patrons. This venue is terrible i am surprised it is still trading because it has not changed in 10 years! Plenty of good venues with live music in... More

Te big menu menu poster at the entrance said they had is as well. We had to wait 30 minutes in line to order and then they didn't serve the dish... More

We lined up for 20 mins to then get to the front to be questioned as to how many drinks we have had. We had an 18 year old with a group of 28year old people and he stuttered. He wasn't let in because his answer was "the wrong answer". We all had one or two drinks with our dinner.... More

We were given the "free dinner" card by happy travel company. We queued for 45 minutes looking forward to our free meal to be told that only it was only a curry for free and they had run out and you had to buy a drink first before ordering. We spoke with a barman prior to joining the queue who... More

We had a voucher for free dinner given to us by tourist information when we booked an activity day. She told us to arrive as soon as the doors open as the free dinner was only valid until a certain time. We pulled up outside and everything told me it wasn't going to be a great place but I ignored... More

Visited here on a Tuesday as the tittle says....for free drinks and snacks with a stamp collected earlier from one of the travel booking shops. Free house beer, wine and soft drinks for an hour and a half! Can't complain! Free chips on the bar too. Pretty cramped and I probably would not pay or queue to get in here... More

My experience of this place was that it would be fun for travelers who were straight out of high school and are into the clubbing scene still and looking for an easy hook-up-you'll most likely get it there. We just wanted to have a cheap meal and we had to go through the whole process of showing our passports and... More

Probably the worst place I have ever been, myself and my partner went for a meal, we ordered and waited 45 mins (it was only a burger and chips) I then asked for a refund to which the staff were very blunt in giving me this back. Also there was a "paper aeroplane competition" and the boy hosting it included... More

Great place for a drink and a party Even though the dance floor are the tables it was interesting Outside after there are some taxis and bike taxis I'm sorry for the guy who took me and two other friends that was effort for you

We came with our hostel and had a meal. They ranged from $10-$15 and some portions were great. The burgers and sandwiches were a good size. I got the spaghetti bolognese which came in a child sized bowl yet still cost me $15?! I left hungry and disappointed I really thought my portion was a starter or even a dip... More
