    Your site allowed me to book a reservation at Helix after the kitchen had already closed, we had just come to the motel after a busy day at an event. Luckily one of your employees was completely understanding and offered complimentary drinks but that was all. massive inconvenience for people that travelled 12 hours down here and do not know the area well.

    The online menu was much better than what was actually the case when we were given a printed menu. There were only a few options to pick from compared to what was online. Service was very bad, our meal was given to another table as they ordered the same thing but were seated long after us.

    When we first arrived we wandered around as there were no visible staff, and then when the friendly staff appeared we were surprised they seemed to not be expecting us even though we had booked. We chose a booth to sit at and then had to clean the seat as it was not clean. The table service after that was good and the food came quickly and was very delicious. We were surprised though that we had to ask for water half way through dinner as none was provided or offered (we had ordered wine and beer). At a nearby table a lady took her seat and she noticed that her table was not clean. She pointed this out to the waiter who then offered to seat her at another table (rather than clean the table she was already at) which we thought was a bit odd. She got up and moved tables. At the end of her meal she stood up and waited quite a while for someone to attend to her so she could pay her bill. Overall, we understood that perhaps staffing (and customers) were down at that time of the year, but we could see how service could have been improved.

    The restaurant was virtually empty when I arrived. The wait staff took more than 15 minutes to take my order and the food, when it arrived 45 minutes later, was cold. I had to remind the wait staff at this time that I was still waiting on the drink I had ordered almost an hour ago. A new meal was offered to replace the cold one and arrived 30 minutes later. The portion was small and I am not a big eater so not reasonable for the price. Wouldn’t recommend.

    Had dinner on a Saturday night whilst staying at The Vibe Hotel, Canberra. Upon arriving for dinner we were informed that they only have a limited bar menu on weekends which was disappointing.

    I got the fish and chips which consisted of 3 half fillets beautifully cooked in a lovely crispy batter, alot of skinny well cooked chips, a salad served in a ramekin with a nice light dressing (I wish there had been more!), a wee dish of tartare sauce and a wedge of lemon. I enjoyed my lunch immensely, thank you!
