We went for the steak and grape special on Mondays. The best deal in town! $20 for an amazing cut of steak, perfectly cooked chips and salad with a drink of choice. I got the bubbles and they were amazing. Check out their weekday specials for amazing $20 lunch deals!
Hi Tracey, thanks for your fantastic review. Great to hear that you enjoyed the steak and grape special. Hope to see you soon again :)

Great service though the mains we had were good they lacked polish. The lamb brisket was ruined with a thin layer of sinew and the veal was average. Notified staff of this and our comments were taken. Will be back to try other dishes.
Thank you for taking the time to review us Mike. We always appreciate feed back. I have spoken to the chef about your comments and he is going to get touch with our suppliers about the lamb cuts. I hope to see you soon to explore the rest of the menu. Kind Regards, Ranui Tosach
