My family and I had a good experience. What stopped it from being outstanding was the communication skills of one waitress. She came across as abrupt and rude. I am sure that wasn’t her intention. Maybe some customer service training would help overcome this. Other than that, the food and atmosphere was fantastic.

First time experience. Entrance to bistro was not clearly indicated from the car park & we ended up unintentionally walking through the pokies area with teenagers! Good variety on the menu. Food nice & portions good. Limited options at the bar (no dark rum) & a problem in kitchen with one of our meals meant our other meals already served were starting to go cold as we politely waited for the last one. The staff were friendly & apologetic but no offer of compensation such as a free drink.

Two years ago I went here and was critical because of the lack of flexibility when ordering meals with chips/salad/vegetables. I'm sure it wasn't my feedback that made them change, but change they have. Wonderful when a restaurant listens to customer feedback.
Thoroughly enjoyed my meal. Will be back many times.

The service was good and the restaurant suited our needs for a large party for both young and old. However, we found the kids meals poor value for money. They were very small and I had to buy extra food for the kids. We also had a few Seniors who were not made aware of a Seniors menu and they were disappointed that they missed the opportunity to order from that menu.

we have been coming here for years. Nice venue, kids meals have shrunk in size and the prices have gone up a fair bit, so we now only go when there are discounts on offer or we have a birthday voucher. Had we paid full price the other night, then I wouldn't have been overly happy, but there was nothing wrong with the food at all. It was lovely, just expensive in general.

Hi Caroline. Thanks for your feedback as it allows us to be the best we can be. Great to read you enjoy the food and are aware of the different discounts we offer our customers. We do aim to provide a reasonable price point for everyone - some of our new menu starters can even be enjoyed as a main meal for half the price. Would love to have you and your family continue to dine with us. If you have any other concerns Management would be happy to discuss on 5979 2989. Have a great day :)

We haven’t been here for a few years after a particularly bad experience, so we were nervous. The food was great, as was the service and staff. Only thing that stopped me giving it 5 stars was the lack of choice in wine (the couple of wines I asked for that was on the wine list, they didn’t have) and they missed my son’s freak shake, but soon rectified this. Overall, great experience and we will definitely be coming back!

Communication between staff was the biggest issue. Lady taking orders at counter was distracted and couldn’t care less about us or our order- just paying. Was actually sad to see her lack of care.

Our groups arrived in 2 groups. One was out on table 1&2 and the other on table 32. Opposite corners. Clearly there was a mistake but there was no cooperation from floor staff to
Help move tables together and the place was 95% empty.

Kids meals are over priced for the re heat quick small meals they are. Sorry but a cheap pizza and a hand full of chips is not worth $12. Kids playland was good.

Adults meals ok. Freak burger and milkshake was well overpriced at $32. Tasted good but you couldn’t see the value. The cream and chocolate was all over the base of the burger and couldn’t be eaten. Very sloppy and messy. Other meals were ok.

A big issues was the length of time the meals took to get to the table. Kids meals super quick. Adult meals around 25 mins and the place was 95% empty. I would dread to see how long it takes when it’s full.

Overall 3/10 and the owners should spend more time in the place talking to customers paying nearly $300 for a few meals because it was a disappointing trip for a birthday celebration.

Very average, quite expensive for a pub bistro. Food was ok but nothing special.

I had the freak burger $32. About $10 over priced
No real specials on the hidden specials board. And specials board was out of date apparently- as items on it were not available.
Service was average, pre booked with high chairs, but had to ask for the high chairs once seated.
I’d been there a few years ago, it’s definitely gone done hill since then.

I definitely wouldn’t go back

The service was appalling. We waited over 2 hours for the meals and it wasn’t even busy. We went up to the counter 5 times and asked how much longer they would be and the response was ‘there next’. When 2 of meals came the picked them up to take them back even though they had been cut and started to be eaten , I said you can’t give it to someone else they have started eating them! And her response was I’ve been told to take them. Another meal was a raw hamburger when I complained to the chef he said it’s suppose to be like that, I don’t think we eat mince raw and demanded my money back. the manager came and in the end and gave us free coffees which they couldn’t even get that order correct, one person had 4 black coffees and to top it off they couldn’t find the birthday cakes. Save your time and your money.
