Had our work Christmas dinner there last week. Yummy dinner, reasonable prices and great service. Good atmosphere and Tim's magic trick made our dinner pleasurable experience. Recommend anyone for dinner.

Meals are large so make sure you're hungry or you can order most of the dishes in a smaller version. Décor is interesting and if you are lucky, the host may even show you a magic trick. Food was like pub food, pleasant but nothing fancy.

Got the seafood platter from here and boy was the platter full! The platter has everything - from battered fish, calamari, oysters to lobster, prawns, chips, etc. Took me a while to finish it but it was worth it.

Nice place to try some Crocodile meat as a starter. All main dishes are very large but you can order smaller portion.

Have just really enjoyed an evening here with Tim & co. A short walk around the block from our hotel, a fantastic place to have an excellent meal in an informal setting. Reasonably priced steak and seafood restaurant with a great menu. I had the garlic prawns, hubby a t bone steak. Both absolutely delicious. Staff are fantastic especially Tim... More
