“Breakfast to set you up for the day!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

Only sampled breakfast, but it was well worth the money and was large enough that you didn't need to have lunch!!!

“great breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2014

Our hotel staff at the Parkside recommended this restaurant for breakfast. We would have walked right past the Chateau Victoria hotel otherwise. We had a wonderful view of the harbour, there were lots of menu choices at reasonable prices, the food was well prepared & the service was excellent. The child's menu included beautiful waffles served with a berry compote and whipping cream. The adult menu offered different egg benny combinations including 1/2 bennies, which was just the right size. A perfect place to eat!

“Good Drinks & Appies”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2014

Loved the Martini list - lots of yummy choices. Loved the view-absolutely stunning. Appetizers were good but portion size was small for the price point. Automatic 17% gratuity - which I find offensive.

“A bit too pretentious.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2014 via mobile

My wife and I shared the linguine, and we each had the potato and leek soup. I had high hopes for a better meal. The food was fine, but not awe-inspiring. Stay away from the house merlot.
