I've been travelling to GC for many years and always avoided this place based on one bad review. How wrong we were, it turned out to be a very good experience. The food was very tasty, the staff were charming and friendly. The manager has been trying to hook us in for years and we just smiled and walked past.... More

I always go here for my breakfast - a full English with coffee and toast. Quality always fair (this year the coffee is better) and great value, professional service and open every day.

We were looking for something a little different one night, and this was the place. Very loud with a "pub style" singer who most of the crowd seemed to love. Most of the waiter staff were great and very friendly, except for the rather surly looking woman with glasses who didn't seem to be too happy that we were there... More

Waiter number 1 approaches table, staring at my half full plate before uttering "I hope you are just having a rest". Waiter number 1 repeats process, making it clear he is staring at my plate...

After having a fantastic breakfast at this venue we returned for an evening meal. Staff are second to none and super friendly, you could not be in safer hands. Food was excellent and the steak was super tasty. Certainly a recommended stop on a night out in Yumbo
