    Organising the preorder was difficult, but the food was really delicious and came out very quickly. Would go back again - just wouldn’t preorder.

    Food was very bland with no flavour... service was probably the best part... even if you have to pay upfront...

    Food was average and quite bland. Staff were friendly and polite. Service and atmosphere was good. The place is mainly good for gatherings and the good view

    The worst. The entire staff seemed completely out of sync with eachother, as if they had all just learned how to work in a restaurant. The hostess didn’t know how to find my reservation, so she sent me to the bartender, who then sent me back to the host stand, who then sent me back to a different bartender, repeated a billion times over until eventually the universe implodes upon itself.

    I have been here twice now using ‘the fork’ 50% discount. The first time I was pretty impressed with the quality of the food, this time it was average. Don’t get the Veggie burger. It’s not very imaginative. I bought a jug of Furphy and it was $36! Lol. Could have bought a slab for that and stayed home

    We went as a group of 4 and the food we ordered was really good and it came quite quickly. There weren't many other diners around at the time we were there, I guess because it was a Sunday. We didn't realise we had to order our food and drinks at the bar because we assumed we were getting table service since the waiter brought us water when we first sat down and didn't inform us about their ordering procedure. Didn't take Amex card and no split bills which might be a bit difficult for larger groups. All in all a good experience!

    Great place in South Wharf with a good selection of food, reasonable prices for generous serves. A big outdoor section is a plus.

    The food was good. But unfortunately the service here is always disappointing. When i got to the bar to order food, there were four staff working in the bar, no other customers. All staff were either continue chatting or just walked away. My friend and I were standing there for about 10 minutes till someone finally acknowledged us.

    The staff were friendly and very accommodating. The meals were well priced and good value. The chicken schnitzel was real great chicken and the pizza great.

    Friendly staff, helpful when approached. Instantly offered a new drink to child when theirs spilled, and didn’t make any fuss over the mess (thankfully, just a minor spill). Coffee was mediocre but everything else was very worthwhile and great location- we will be back
