Had a lovely light meal at Docclands this week with family. We ordered two salmon on crostini with salad and a beef Thai salad that had the thumbs up too. Friendly service from bar staff too.

Today, a wonderful day having lunch close to the water edge of Newcastle harbour. We had "Crispy skinned Daintree Barramundi" and "Prawns and Blue Swimmer Crabs Pasta". Both dishes have been very good and the waiting time was very short.

Came here for pre-drinks for my Hens party. Drinks were well priced and the sweet potato chips were lovely! We sat outside under the mister which made everything more bearable. Drinks were well priced. I would come back here again for drinks.

It is disappointing to hear this. When you were approached on the night you had no interest in your concern being properly addressed. Instead, you spoke poorly to the Manager and had no interest in anything he had to say to resolve the matter. 'I've...More
