Hi there, we are always happy to meet any guest request where possible. Unfortunately your booking was placed without reference to the large pram and also bassinet that required additional space. Even though we were full on a balmy Saturday night, as you note, our host was observant, available to help, and provided your group with the option to move... More

Fantastic service, Our take away pizzas were ready as we arrived. Great pricing multiple pizza deals are available. Most definitely the best and highest quality toppings. We continue to order our pizzas from here especially as Zak's Pizzas on Cliff Avenue are not to the same standard or quality.

We stopped off for a bite of lunch. I'm so glad we did. There is a relaxed and friendly vibe. Service was prompt and attentive. Food was superb. Pizza was super thin crust and generous toppings.

We celebrated a birthday here with 10 people. The atmosphere, service and food was outstanding, especially the delicious platters. The variety of food on these platters was perfect, something for everyone and cooked just right. I love the quirkiness of this place. Well done Deep Blue Cafe and thank you for contributing to a fabulous birthday.
