    Extremely poor service. Wait person needs to find a new job because hospitality is not her calling.

    Great food. Interesting service. Our server walked away before taking our 4th guest’s drink order. I asked for a spicy margarita and server asked my level of spice preference. He forgot and made the drink “the way he likes it”. Took some time for our empty plates to be taken away. Very cool spot and would return although this experience was not a highlight of our time in Melbourne.

    A very busy place for lunch. The service could be much better and more attentive. They obviously need more staff.

    A lovely atmosphere. We enjoyed the express lunch. Both had steak. Salad, was just salad leaves and one cherry tomato cut in half.

    Had to go back to front of house to ask if we could order. No-one came up to us after we were seated. Humpty Doo Barramundi was beautiful and even though steak was nicely cooked it was cold.

    Overall pretty disappointing. Bad service, they tucked us away in a corner and we were forgotten about. Took the waiter 10 minutes to come back to ask if we wanted a drink. We asked to move as the couches weren’t conducive to eating. Second table was wobbly, drinks and food spilling. My fiancé ordered a drink which after 20 mins never arrived, they forgot about it. Hard to flag down wait service. A Monday night so very quiet, it wasn’t like they were busy?! Table next to us were also having trouble flagging wait staff down. They also sent back their dessert as it was rock hard and still frozen (it was meant to be the donuts) our steak meal was fine, steak cooked okay. 2 stars. Wouldn’t go back. Especially not for a date night/special occasion.
