    There was a great vibe on the terrace and the food was delicious! We will definitely be coming back. There was only one small incident which stopped me from giving 5 stars, as just before we left, a waitress picked up a jug of water from a table which had just left and came over and poured the dregs into my husband’s cup to top it up which was pretty gross as anything could have been dropped into it. Other than this, the service was fantastic - one British waitress with dark hair was exceptionally good!

    Look, this is the place to eat, the food is great, the drinks are also great. You gotta understand it's got the meats, it's got so much variety of food, you want chicken you got chicken, you want beef, you got beef. If you want great tasting drinks and food just go here, what are you even doing with your life, go here, the sundaes are also painfully good, I saw god when I had that sundae, my god

    Had a few different meals, been here before, with no issue. On this occasion though I found the food to be poor. Sorry, but I’m being honest. I’m an ex chef so I really try to be fair, but it wasn’t good. The nachos for example looked good from the top, but it wasn’t layered and as a result resembled a big dry biscuit. The steak and sweet mash was like a dried up bone, and for the price it simply wasn’t good enough. I know this isn’t what you want to hear and I’m not trying to be difficult, but this is the reality. $300 I spent and this is the 2nd time I’ve spent that amount, and I just expect a bit more. So sorry for this feedback.

    Always a great experience coming to HOB. Foods always amazing and massive for your moneys worth. Cocktails are always flavoursome and such fun. Our waitress was lovely and attentive. This dinner was for a birthday and they brought out a massive fairy floss bucket with sparklers which was amazing. We will always come back :)

    Waited way too long for drinks when it wasn’t that busy. Actually had to go get our own drinks off the bar. Guitarist was too loud. Left after two drinks. Poor service.

    Absolutly loved it and so did my family. We will 100% be coming back, next time though we may ask for a quieter table, it was so load it discouraged conversation, which detracted from its appeal. And I 100% know this makes me sound like a nana, I just think you are losing a market by only appealing to those who are young and don't look up from their phones.

    I ordered the scotch fillet steak and it was so plain. No seasonings or butter it just tasted plain with little burnt bits. The coleslaw didn’t have much dressing if any. For the price I paid for it I was quite disappointed.

    Overall a good experience. Was a little taken aback after ordering when I was asked to pay for my meal before I had received it or leave my license or credit card at the bar as Security for paying the bill. Staff should make it known this is a requirement before you sit down and order.

    We arrived and were seated quickly. Drinks and food orders were taken quickly and drinks arrived in good time. We ordered a tasting platter to share and accepted it could be a long wait, however after a couple of rounds of drinks we realized we had been waiting over an hour - we queried with a staff member and discovered the order had gone missing or not been put through correctly. Staff were very apologetic, put it through as a rush and after another round of drinks, the platter arrived and was taken off the bill. No dramas - mistakes happen and it was rectified quickly. Overall, we really enjoyed the food, drinks and ambience and would return again - the halloumi fries are delicious! Would definitely return again.

    Service started well but declined quickly. Ordered the same beer three times, tried to charge us twice for it. Had to ask three times for the kids Ice Cream that was included with the meal. Some meals were large some were tiny. Cocktails were delicious but expensive.

    Restaurant was extremely loud, too loud, could barely hear the staff or hear people I was with. There was a staff member (assuming a manager or supervisor of some sort?) bellowing at other staff being really nasty to the wait staff which was awkward to watch. Drinks were ordered and not all drinks showed up. Took half an hour to receive the missing drink. Could not catch a staff member to enquire about the missing beverage. When we got someone they could barely hear us and thought we were wanting to order a drink. Had to explain multiple times that we had ordered but not all drinks had been provided. Food was ok but nothing special. Had made a reservation and did not recieve the seating that had been booked. When a member of our party enquired about this the staff member's response was "How much have you had to drink?" or something to that effect. This person had not been drinking and had merely clarified about the booking/seating. The person was insulted as it was not an appropriate response to a genuine query. Wait staff looked miserable and not happy to be there. Would not recommend this venue and will not visit again unfortunately.
