This little gem is the casual sideshoot of the well known NuNus, and you can tell that the concept and management are influenced by genuinely experienced restaurateurs. It deserves a gong all of its own. The great location and relaxed vibe are solidly backed up by an awesome menu and very respectable winelist. Serving sizes are dare I say too big, and the food so delicious that eating everything is the only option.

First looks in the day looked tropical, fun and like a good place to go. Kids eat free 5-6 so that was a draw card.
Well this place really did not live up to first impressions.
The cocktails looked amazing on paper but the real deal was underwhelming. The unicorn margarita looked like a regular lemon margarita, I was hoping for a pop of colour or something that resembles a unicorn. The capriosca was super sour as well.
Food took a long time to come and we had to purchase kids colouring packs too.
The spicy chicken burger had no spice at all and there was no apple in the apple slaw!‍♀️
Overall it was an experience we won’t repeat. Too expensive for sub optimal cuisine......
Sorry guys time to lift your game... I really wanted to like you.

disappointing two times in the row. once I got served a very bad espresso and waiter snapped on us after we ask to remove from the bill.

this weekend we had maybe the most expensive chips, just a serving of chips, for a total of AUD 10? a joke, my partner asked for gravy, but got served some kind of peppercorn jus, no matter if you do not have gravy on hand, but advise the guest and not serve something what the chef guess,,,,,,

will stay away from this venue

Simple user friendly Menu of family favourites.

Well worth a visit if you’re looking for somewhere that’s not trying too hard and is capable of delivering honest food.

The owners kept the former Greek restaurant fit-out as an ironic gesture, but it’s now well past it’s use-by date.

I have had lunch and dinner here multiple times and it is always great! I recommend this place for dates or lunch/dinner with family & friends.
Never had an average meal, always yummy!
