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!!!

My husband and I met our uni student granddaughter there for lunch. It was a perfect choice of venue, the service was excellent and the penne lamb ragu was absolutely divine.
