Rather disappointing menu with such amazing views the experience & expectations of the food did not impress - pasta should be homemade not out of a packet !!! Rather oily & unpleasant to eat - would not recommend for food just the views

Staff wiped tables clean by dropping food onto floor Insufficient staff, appeared not well organised but were friendly the overall experience I would not return, the take away would have been a better value

The service was great and we had a lovely table, positioned for the view and alfresco which I asked for when booking. The food was fresh but a bit simple although good value except for the beef burger which was a bit overpriced.

Gorgeous views, excellent service, a more varied menu would be appreciated but the food was nice nonetheless.

My husband got the beef burger and chips. For the $26 it cost it was absolutely terrible,he had to leave half of it behind. Also had to ask for the toppings it was supposed to come with. Very disappointed as it was booked for a birthday lunch. The best thing about our meal was the bottled beer which couldn’t go wrong.

They were missing a key component of the dish I ordered. They said they’d run out but we’d ordered at midday for lunch. I had to ask where it was, they were just going to leave it off without explanation. It was the sole reason I’d ordered that dish. For the others on the table, the pasta was chewy and most of the food bland.

The View was great but not perfect! A distance walk from the zoo entrance. The food was ok, not the best fish and chips that I ever eaten.
