Ordered hot food and told the wait will be 15-20 minutes. Only about 5-6 others waiting. 55 minutes later our food was ready. It was terrible. However. the fresh prawns were great. Some OH&S issues. They need to bulldoze and start again.

Food took forever. Staff all fighting as cooking. No one knows what to do. Calamari older than me. Had to ask for salt -and given big cheap salt to use and had to take back. No potato in the scollop. Don't go here.

My husband and I stopped here last weekend for lunch. Although the outside was shabby, we took the gamble and ordered, to be told to take a seat out the back. The restaurant is a shambles, an absolute bulldoze job. We were the only people...More
