                                                        They advertised a "Pizza "Party" every Sunday which consisted of bottomless Pizza plus 2 hours off Beer, Cider or Wine deal for $55. Bookings were "essential", so we booked a table to find out the offer was not available when we arrived, which was a very disappointing. We opted for the share plates and the food was fantastic. Everything was cooked to perfection and the sauces so complemented the food. They did have the advertised live music and the lady was absolutely amazing. My only suggestion is to check the "What's On" offers are actually on before you book if that is what attracted you to the venue. Other than that, you defintiley won't be disappointed.

                                                        Pork belly tacos were great. Paella yummy, serving could have been a bit bigger (more rice maybe). Octopus was lacking in flavour and a little overcooked. Service was excellent. The guy with reddish hair looked after us all evening, he was running from table to table, very attentive and helpful. He’s a real asset to the place. Cocktails were fantastic and so well presented. Enjoyed the atmosphere and the tunes. Will definitely be back.

                                                        We ordered 5 items of food and was informed afterwards 2 was not available. The lamb kofta was over cooked, dry and tasteless. They even ran out of one of the beer. The service was slow. Recommend the chicken karage. We won’t be back as overall the experience was not great.

                                                        The wait staff service was on-point, we wanted for nothing all night, they were helpful and ever so friendly. The cocktails on point, the food sensational, and the atmosphere was inviting. We will definitely visit again.

                                                        This place was everything I hoped for I went along with my mum amd sister for my birthday with beautiful flavoured well cooked food and even friendlier and top notch staff making sure at all times we were taken care of we didn't have to lift a finger. The cocktails were outstanding and watching them being made step by step was a show in itself with live music a such a great upbeat atmosphere I couldn't have asked for anything more .Not only would I highly recommend but I would also definitely return.

                                                        Had a meal on NYE. Service was fantastic, our waitress could not have been more attentive and friendly. Food was awesome, we shared 5 plates including karate chicken, fish tacos and duck spring rolls. All amazing but my highlight was the crumbed olives! Live music was good and the vibe was lively but not too much that you couldn't chat over food. Great night.
