    An absolutely brilliant night! The food was better than great! The service was excellent! A big shout out to Max. The entertainment was awesome. We went on a Sunday night which was Dine and Drag night and darling, it was divine. What a great night!

    Great location and food food. Good bar staff who never smile but make very good cocktails. Service is patchy and sometimes waitresses forget requests.

    The balcony is in a great spot with our position ok. I had expected a table not a bar table type position . I ordered a tall g & t & it arrived with the tonic water flat . Our food when served was cold & the crab tacos very poorly filled with for their money

    The ambience was very festive and the team obliging. Food was good. Missed out on one order where the kitchen had run out of that dish but were weren't informed until other meals had arrived. They did not charge though. Drag show a little dissappointing as performer was not funny and lip synched. So just watched a man dress up in drag and strut.

    Food reasonable but pathetic value for money. Main course would be a disappointing size for an appetiser. Service slow and chaotic. Loud Speakers above us made conversation near impossible. Very disappointing meal. Restaurant now governed by someone in 'head office' apparently. Results are lamentable. Won't be returning anytime soon.

    We waited on a line to get in, clearly lots of 7pm bookings. The wait staff arrived promptly to take our drinks menu. We asked for a few minutes to look at drinks menu and they didn't return. We had to call them, ordered drinks, which did not arrive. After taking out food order, we asked if they could file up on drinks. When did arrived, starters and mains arrived together. This made our all difficult to eat. Waiter also not really familiar with menu when we asked questions. The good however was delicious with beautiful flavours abounding. Sakad was fresh and tasty and setting and ambience of this restaurant are lovely. Need to sort out

    I preordered the seafood platter for Valentines Day which came to $150aud. The service and ambience of restaurant was quite lovely despite the pouring rain and they were able to seat us near the edge of the balcony as requested for a nice view. Unfortunately the only downside was the seafood platter which did not taste fresh and was quite fishy as well as water-sodden. We ended up leaving the majority of it and eating elsewhere.

    . While roasted snapper at $45 for two was tasty snd well presented Ran out of green veggies by 6:30?? Substitute salad pathetic at $10. Leaves thrown together ... no tomatoes or cucumber ... just mixed lettuce leaves with a few radishes. Wine list very average. Loud repetitive music spoilt the ambience

    We came a few years ago and it was great so wanted to visit again, but were left pretty disappointed. The staff were unfriendly ( a smile wouldn't go astray), and food was average. We started with the cauliflower popcorn (it's really what we came back for!) and chips which were very salty but nice. Most of us got pasta for the main and everyone agreeed it was beyond average - pretty tasteless and just should have been so much better. We'd still come back for the good vibes, but just stick to drinks.

    This place was recommended by a friend and we decided to have lunch there for my birthday. The service was good and the waiter informed us in the beginning of the specials. The food was tasty and the service was quick.

    Went for a late lunch.. nice person who showed us in.. then to be told limited menu between 3 and 5 which is fine but the options were only 2 Mains and the rest share plates.. this should be made clearer when booking. When we then picked our food and drinks we were then told that they didn’t have 3 of the things we wanted out of the already limited menu.. which is again fine but that should have been mentioned when we were given the menu or perhaps they should have alternative options if those weren’t available off the limited menu. The waitress that served us the hygiene officer was quite blunt and generally not warm. Then we ordered some cocktails when the happy hour started waited 15 minutes for someone to come back and tell us they machine was broken.. then we ordered gin and tonics then they didn’t show so we just paid the bill and left. Overall a bit disappointed and would not recommend

    Crab linguine was delightful and the garlic sauce for the mussels was very tasty. Cocktails nice but not amazing. Thanks a lot for a good night!
