Our order wasn't correct when it was deliveted, but the server immediately offered to rectify the error.
The location is lovely, and very convenient for a meeting place for friends from north & south of the river. Heaps of free parking.

Food was great, but service was poor. No one even bothered to give us a menu. Had to go and ask for them. Staff just did the bare minimum in terms of service. A shame as the food was great.

Splendid location. Poached eggs were overcooked and the vinegar used I assume to set the eggs, was overpowering. Scrambled eggs were more like an overcooked, dry, flat omelette all pushed together. Sausages very dry. Hope the lunches are better. No tea on the menu under Tea / Coffee. Cannot fault the location. Otherwise wouldn't return. Would not recommend the breakfast. Average coffee.

River views are pleasant and would make a lovely stop for those cruising the river on the citycats. Only problems were the failure to put the meat into the Massaman curry that only had rubbery potato and very little flavour. Dish taken away and returned with a pile of meat and another pile of rubbery potato on top of the previously served curry without even mixing into curry sauce. Failure to offer coffee after we finished dinner. Closes at 2.30 and stools were being packed up blocking our view by 2pm. Otherwise everything else was ok.

A delightful venue for a relaxed lunch. Very busy on a Sunday so suggest booking. Enjoyed the food and appreciated the patience of our waitress 98 women chatting rather than consulting the menu and ordering!!) Very enjoyable venue. Hopeful we shall return sooner rather than later.
Cheers

Fantastic location with great view of the river. Good parking options and near City Cat ferry terminal. Small nearby beach and playground for kids. Great tasting food, well presented and good portions. Service was a little slow due to crowds, so would have helped with another one or two wait staff during busy periods. Staff were friendly and helpful. Overall very good restaurant and would recommend it to others.

I would recommend this cafe to friends and family. We had a group of 14 and all said they were very happy with their meals. Choice was very good - caters for all. Staff friendly. Looking over the river watching the City Cats and boats going up and down the river is peaceful. Cool breezes coming off the water. Parking is excellent.

My recommendation is only valid if the air conditioning is either fixed or switched on. A good meal Wass spoiled by a hot room.

Hi Phil! We are very sorry that the airconditioning was being repaired during your visit! The repairs are now complete in time for a hot summer. We hope you come back for a refreshing lemonaid and lunch when you can enjoy the cool air! :)

A lovely spot for lunch.
It has it all. A great view of the river, friendly and helpful staff, delicious food and a relaxed and inviting atmosphere.
The pumpkin salad topped with crispy sweet potato flakes was so good I asked for the recipe!

Booked for 23 people but the booking was not set up on arrival as one of the staff didn't have the password to log into the booking system. Had asked for an outdoor setting, was put inside in front of the counter so not the best ambiance. Took an hour to get drinks out. Asked twice for them to take meal orders. Staff had no idea who had ordered what. Was our third team visit, unlikely to go back.

Very good all round however drink glasses had lipstick marks on them. The fish water jug was dirty with something red spilt on the white jug.

Water jug only held enough water for 3 people there were four at the table.

Drinks came out after meals we had nearly finished meals when drinks arrived.

Staff lovely, food good, I know it was busy but it is the little things
We were inside but tables outside not shaded for diners.

I will definitely be going back. The food was delicious and so was the natural apple juice I had. It was very busy due to Father’s Day and it was a little hard to maneuver the pram inside, however, everyone was very accommodating. Staff were extremely polite and friendly.
