A special farewell dinner for a dearly loved family member. A table by the window for a view of the ocean was marred by the deeply gouged scratches on the restaurant windows as well as an outside balcony which blocked half the outlook. There were other tables not being used with far superior outlooks. We assumed they were reserved but that was not the case.
Expensive prices for basic pub food however my husbands meal was the exception as it was generous and varied and enjoyable.
Two mains were returned to the kitchen as the scotch steak in the steak sandwich was inedible. Tough, leathery, and unable to be cut through. The staff were extremely apologetic and offered alternative meals however we declined as we had eaten our sides and a small entree and were no longer hungry.
Cocktails took over half an hour to receive even though we had requested to have them before our entree was delivered. The drinks and the entree were served almost immediately together. I enjoyed my cocktail however the other two cocktails were not pleasant and not made well and the glasses were splattered with water where they had not been dried properly from washing.

Food was great, we had the share plate for starters which was very filling and than the main course really topped it off. Really great food, and the service we received was excellent.

I received a birthday voucher and we were both very pleasantly surprised for our first dining experience here. We both thoroughly enjoyed the food which were very generous portions. The staff were all very welcoming, and the service was very good. We weren't rushed at all which made it a very relaxing evening. We have already recommended this place to others, and look forward to coming again soon.

The meal was average and the beer is fair too expensive $15 for a pint of beer is outrageous when the other venues in the area charge $8-10. Wouldn’t go back.

For a restaurant at a decent hotel the food is very ordinary and uninspiring. The range of options were sparse especially for a buffet. There is no reason for me to want to return.

Ordered 2 glasses of champagne that did not arrive. they said the system failed.
Ordered 2 glasses of champagne again and received a whole bottle that was opened -- so they got the order wrong. we gave up and just accepted the whole bottle anyway..
Later requested a candle to be brought out in a cupo cake or something because it was my wife's brithday. was told had to order a desert (not cheap) so i did and it took ages to come out.. Overall it was expensive for what it was but the staff were all very friendly and nice.

We had a birthday booked. The birthday girl requested well done steak she was sent out medium to medium rare steak not once but twice. Also the 2nd steak took forever to come out everyone else finished their dinner before she got to have hers.
The waitstaff were good at trying to resolve the issue but think the kitchen staff need to update their knowledge on different types of cooked steak.
Other than that wait staff were great and rest of our food couldnt be faulted. Decent portions for the price.

We ordered an entree and main each. Entrees were okay. Ordered scotch fillet for dinner, 80% of the steak was fat and inedible. $42 each and left extremely disappointed. For that much money the steak should have been incredible and high quality. Definitely won’t be back and wouldn’t recommend to anyone.

I have been to the restaurant on several occasions & have usually had a good experience. This time I was a little embarrassed because I had invited a good friend & he had the greasy pork & only eat a quarter & I had extremely dry over cook fish. Very disappointing.
