    Amazing! Our waiter was very appropriate with how much he interacted with us, not too much, not too little. Beautiful venue too. Large portion sizes.

    This is an amazing location with great staff and wonderful food at fair prices. But the place needs to be renovated or upgraded as the tabletops have gaps in them and in our case a toothpick wedged, in the gap

    We went for a quick team lunch, taking either the 1 course or 2 course lunch menu. There was only one other large group of about 8 and a few smaller tables. The food when it came when the corrected the order was great, the attitude and service was appalling. We were from a major organisation near by and would not go again. it used to be great.

    It’s was a great setting, enjoyed the atmosphere. The food was incredibly slow, this could have been because the waiter serving us was very inexperienced. However, the food was really tasty. We spent really long waiting for each item, drinks, mains, desserts. Didn’t feel like we could relax as we had to keep on top of our next order.

    Great concept, reasonable food but extremely poor service. The correct drink order arrived 45 minutes after being seated despite reminding the non observant staff. The restaurant informed us at the time of booking that our sitting is for 1.5 hours and that we would need to vacate the table by the end of the period yet the staff had no sense of urgency to accommodate the restaurant's instruction. Wait staff walked around leisurely without skimming the room for customers that required service. Staff need to undertake a training program as they are letting this exciting restaurant concept down.

    Been a few times and this time I’m not in a hurry to go back. Bread that accompanied the cheese dip was hard as a rock. Service was ok.

    Great date night before a show at the ICC. Loved the kangaroo and chicken wings. The place smells amazing! - the smell of grilled meat filled the place. Mb not the best place for vegan(!) Great service and atmosphere. We will be back!

    Great value unpretentious (and very tasty) food, reasonably priced drinks, friendly service. One of the few places I return to on a regular basis.

    Went there for the third time recently, and the restaurant is still great. However, we did notice the scallops entree did get changed, and it isn't as good as it used to be, not as much flavour as the previous style which was topped with tomato and herbs, and served with flatbread. The king's feast was still great, the chicken and steak were both amazing. The service was good but the waitress' attitude did change when the tips weren't ample, which really ruined the great experience.

    Great location and atmosphere, very welcoming and engaging service, food / drink high quality but low quantity (so-so value), says AmEx welcome but isn't. Would be happy to return or recommend to others.
