    Delicious food that came out quickly despite the large crowd at the venue on the night. The sharing style worked well for our group and we all left suitably more plump. Anyone interested in conversation and tapas style modern menu should check out Shorehouse

    Customer service was extremely friendly but quite slow. (They were very busy and trying their best but understaffed). Waited a long time to order drinks and a long time to order meals. Food was excellent as always. Table position not great facing the front til and people constantly bustling past.

    Very reluctant to go back. Service was very poor. We had to look for staff to order drinks. We then waited a long time for drinks to be served. Very poor quality food and very small amount after a very long wait time. Some people on our table ordered the feed me set menu for $85 a head. We all needed to eat after we finished as the quantity was very minimal. Very disappointed !

    Very hot inside quite uncomfortable,outside was a breeze but the furniture outside was very hot not the right furniture for North Queensland, maybe in an air-conditioned room, but not outside, very uncomfortable. The table next to us also said the seating was very hot to sit in as it was like sitting in a sauna

    The food was ok, over priced for what it was. Food took quite a long time to come out also. There was no air conditioning and so many patrons were sweating bullets. The fans were on but barely did anything. For a restaurant in tropical QLD air con is an essential.
