The lunch menu and glass of wine is great value and is available seven days a week. Service friendly and helpful . We were seated in a corner but the restaurant is a nice space.

Great food- all of our meals were.perfect and even loved the side greens! Dessert was divine but we were all too full from fabulous mains to fit it in- thank for a great night

Great food and service

Very reasonably priced generous servings within a short distance of the Palace Electric Cinemas! We had three children with us and the friendly staff were more than happy to adjust a spicy burger and bring share plates for the penne. The adult portions were just the right size for a light lunch. For the price, ($2 wine and $4 beer) the drinks were great! One tip would be to warm up the room in advance of opening as it was a bit chilly!

A great lunch spot for a quiet talk. Prompt but low key service and a tasty menu with excellent coffee.

The food was lovely, however the service was appalling. The waitress, had absolutely no interpersonal skills, was abrupt and lacked any finesse. She didn't take the time to explain anything on the menu, became impatient when we weren't ready to order and refused to give us additional time to read the desert menu as the kitchen was apparently closing at 8:45PM. Then when we were leaving and wanted to pay she was sitting up on the bar counting the till drinking wine with her friends. Glad she's not managing my restaurant!!!
