Was staying around the corner and went a few nights in a row trying the different nightly specials and it was all decent food and good service.

Great place as meeting point before a game, at Etihad Stadium. Food is good and well priced, the staff and service is great. Can get busy before a big game, so booking a table prior would my suggestion. Although we have never had to as we normally get in early. Easy short walk to Etihad from the Nixon .

We ate in the Bistro and the food was excellent and service was extremely quick and friendly. The waitress came back during our meal to check that everything was OK, which was a nice touch. It is a pub/sports bar atmosphere, so dont expect more, but its a great central location and handy of you are attending the footy or... More

We had a meal here before the first pre-season game at Etihad. The staff were friendly, service great and the food was really good. The parma was so huge that we couldn't possibly eat it all. My brother had the veal, which was a very small serve in comparison. He also said it needed more potatoes with it. The pub... More
