    The customer service was lovely and the food was absolutely delicious! We enjoyed the beautiful view and it was great that the restaurant was spacious so you’re not crowded with other tables, especially when dining with a highchair. Parking is ample and nice and close the the cafe. We will definitely be back!

    On entering the restaurant for breakfast, my mask was off because proof of vaccination was shown. I heard a voice that said, please put your mask on. We sat down and I was dismayed to see my first and last name on the table. This is the first time I have experienced this as opposed to giving my name at a restaurant quietly to the waitress. It is unacceptable to me that everyone in the restaurant had the opportunity to identify me. I would not have minded if it was only my first name. On ordering, I asked why our masks had to be on once in the restaurant and she said that it is like that everywhere, making me feel like I wasn't aware of how Covid 19 dictated circumstances. I told her that I disagreed because many place varied depending, even the basic principles are pretty much the same. The breakfast for all of us was very average. I was told that with the kid's breakfast, eggs were cooked fried only for which I said "okay" to. The bacon and eggs that I ordered was very average (the poached eggs were nice) it was obvious that the spinach was basically thrown onto the plate and not washed. My husband had the beef cheeks. He said they tasted funny and I think my daughter's berries dish wasn't the best either compared to the same dish she has eaten many times before. It was not of standard of going out for breakfast.

    Really disappointed with our meals or pizzas bases were burnt on the edge and barely cooked in the middle. We were charged extra for gluten free bases which we didn’t ask for as well.

    I booked on line which was easy to do. However it came to the special instructions where it let me down. I requested not to be seated at a Booth and requested Table seating only. On my arrival they had booked my seating in a Booth not Happy that no one had time to read the special Instructions. Besides that small issue we had a great Breakfast and the food was very good.

    We had a large table for a family 4th birthday lunch and staff were extremely helpful with all requests even though they were quite busy. Food all came out fairly quickly and was all very nice - great experience

    Food was excellent had the smoked lamb salad and the fish and chips both generous serves. The pizza looked good too on the next table. Easy access to the Aquarium area after and a lovely afternoon. Keep in mind 3pm closes which is a bit early I believe for the Aquarium area and that was excellent and liked the souvenir shop too. Great visit all around.

    Most of the staff were fantastic one wasn't, unfortunately that was the one who served us. The food OMG how you can make sure lovely looking dishes so absolutely tasteless. Your Thai chicken tacos all you can taste is lettuce and I mean lettuce. My little girls mini chicken burger was completely with out taste But her chips even so a bit under cooked was tasty. My pizza was burn't have a nice flavour but crust burn't. The spice chai tea made with milk oh so very yum yum. I will come back for the tea and maybe some chips but will be to afraid to try food again. Will say the inside was very nice and comfy

    Food was very average this time . Two of us had the beef burgers, were so dry. This fish was very average also. The staff were nice but whoever was on in the kitchen ??? Also noticed a burnt pizza being taken out to a customer 😳

    Such a beautiful location. The staff are lovely however the food is terrible. Have been here so many times to give it another chance but every time we’re disappointed. Unfortunately last time we went the food was inedible and we had to leave and go to the kiosk down the road (the kids were so hungry by then). Have realised it’s jut not worth the aggravation so sadly that’ll be our last time eating here. Would’ve been good to be reimbursed but realise the waitstaff don’t have the power to make those decisions.
