To be honest we were a little disappointed as our entree’s order was not placed and our mains and entree came out all the same time.

Service was very slow. We thought we'd been forgotten about because we were waiting for so long before anyone came to take our order.
The food is overpriced, especially since the steaks don't come with any chips, salad or veges.

Upon arrival to our table, there were no plates ready for entree. Our entree order was taken close to arrival, but our main orders were taken after finishing our entree. We are used to both entrees and mains being ordered at the same time. As there were no plates at the table upon arrival, one of my guests had to use the menu as a plate, which is not acceptable. Choice of desserts was very minimal and disappointing. I know you were under staffed, but having a big booking like ours, you should have been more prepared with additional staff. The young girl who did look after our table in the beginning was well presented and friendly. Overall I would not return or recommend this restaurant to my friends and family.

Was a lovely meal but I was a little surprised at the menu. It wasn’t very extensive & I was expecting more fresh seafood. The staff were lovely.

We found the menu indicated casual eats and was not very extensive so we were very surprised when the meals came out. The steak and the chicken were melt-in-the-mouth and the potatoes were to die for. Very nice.
