    Waitress was lovely and attentive, food was average and atmosphere ruined by who I assume was the owners son with his loud obnoxious manner when talking with his family, no regard for diners around him.

    We were very disappointed with Fork,the restaurant didn’t have our booking even though the conformation from Fork said it was booked,we were lucky they had one table left,the restaurant was fully booked. This is the second time I’ve used Fork and the second time a restaurant hasn’t had our booking. I won’t be using Fork again.

    Da Ricados as been there a long time and you can't really go wrong. I just think they could shake up there menu. Have some new choices and definitely change the way the vegies are presented. Service is usually good and always nice to be offered a complimentary port

    Da Ricardo's

    Thank you for the feedback. We were actually discussing changing the menu over the past 2 weeks. If you have any suggestions on items you would like to see please feel free to let us know. We were also discussing changing up the vegetables presentation and in general. But again thank you for the feedback and rest assured we are working on some changes over the next month or 2.

    The restaurant hadn't received our booking which we made through the Fork yet we had received a confirmation email. Fortunately they could accommodate us.

    Service was great and the location is convenient. Food was average (a tad away from below average if I'm honest). We waited about 40 mins for our mains but was disappointed with the food. We ordered a Surf & Turf and a Mixed Grills. The seafood was not the freshest (eatable) and the creamy sauce was so watery that it should be called soup! The Mixed Grills was not great either, there were only 3 pieces of meat (about 3 fingers size each) and a small sausage. Again, the homemade special sauce was watery and tasted funky. Would I return? Maybe, only if there's promotion and I don't have to pay full price.

    Dinner with family to celebrate a birthday. Six guests, six different meals, all delicious and generous serves. All staff wearing big smiles and doing their job well. Space is smallish and therefore can be a bit noisy if busy. A really enjoyable night.
