    Don't waste your money. Very limited menu and food was awful. The service itself wasn't too bad, a bit bored supposedly. There wasn't many people in the restaurant but it took a long time and they charge like a wounded bull

    The food was very tasty and well priced. It wasn't super busy at lunch being a Wednesday. The service was good with the food coming out quick from the kitchen.

    We were extremely disappointed by what was on the handwritten menu. We understand that thanks to COVID menus may be reduced but the basic meals were nothing like the menu on their website which they should have stressed online. They also only had one menu so we had to wait to view it. No prices were listed so we had to ask. Ended up only having coffee and going to nearby cafe to eat instead.

    Food was lovely just would have made for a better dining experience if staff were more friendly and showed more attention to our table.

    Our waitress was great but the waitress who was making coffees and fixing up accounts could learn to smile more and be more friendly!

    Clearer marking of where toilets are would be helpful from the bar end which is a fair way down . Otherwise I liked the place . I will go back there.

    I was not overly impressed, the atmosphere was great, the place is very nice, the food took quite a while to come out and was not overly impressive,unfortunately as it is a convenient location. There are not many options on this side of town.

    Good service, food is reasonably priced and the venue is one that has real potential given it's size and differing areas, bars, dining, booths, casual etc. Location of North Geelong has real appeal for Melbourne visitors.

    Food was lovely but the wait was very very very long. About 45/50mins plus. Staff did apologise but only after 45mins. We didn’t mind so much as we were catching up with family we hadn’t seen in awhile and chatting etc but if it was just my husband, our 1 year old and myself it would of been hard to take. Wait staff also seemed very young and too relaxed/causal.

    Enjoyable lunch, great ambience and friendly service. The falafels and calamari were both great choices. Good coffee finished a pleasant meal

    Had to move one of our tables over ourselves so it had a gap and was more accessible for people to get out to go to the bathroom but other than that it was very good!
