Birthday balloons were on our table which was a nice touch. Waiter introduced himself and explained he would be looking after us. Asked if we... More

Great meet up place. Not too many people during lunch service, so can sit and chat for a long time. Good service. But watch out, they charge for everything and not tell you until you get the bill.

Way too loud and hard to have a conversation here. Plenty of staff who look busy however stand around chatting near the order screen, and don't do a particularly good job of looking after their tables. We had an empty bottle on our table for over half an hour which a number of staff walked past, however we finally had... More

Attended for a Sunday lunch. New menu was pretty average - do not like some of the changes to salad. The coleslaw is dry and pretty tasteless. As for the setting, music (if you call it that) is far too loud and even when asked to turn it down - staff ignored it. It is their hearing that it at... More

Hog's breath Cafe, Watergardens. The resturant itself inside is interesting with all the wood type decor. When the food came out, it was warm, not hot. So ordinary, the fish and chips...bland, and the ceasar salad worse. Won't be going back.

The kids had their usual curly fries and nuggets, followed up with ice creams. This time I ventured past the Calamari, and into the prime rib steak, apparently slow cooked for 18hrs. And it didn't disappoint. Cooked perfectly, juicy and succulent. Wifey had the eye fillet, and again, cooked to perfection. While I'm always hesitant to order steak at chains... More
