Stopped by one evening for street music, drinks, and appys. Service was good. Great to sit on the street and watch the world go by. Appy was ok and came fairly quickly. The serve missed giving us a napkin or utensils. Water would have been nice too. Not a biggy. Did not try the entres, but they seemed a little unique and the folks that packed the inside seemed satisfied.
We'll try this place for dinner one night.

Not sure where to start on this. This restaurant has everything going for it. Nice patio at the back. The front patio overlooks the band stand where there is nightly music. And the review on Trip advisor are good ... so what happened??? We had shocking service, where we were left for long periods on our own and we were seated inside the restaurant not on either patio. Probably the most shocking part of the meal was our appetizer of mussels that were served frozen. Yup thats right, not cold but frozen solid in ice. The broth had simply been poured over the still frozen mussles and served to us. On returning them to the kitchen, and perhaps this was naughty, we placed a couple of empty shells in our bowl, 5 mins later we got the same mussels back in the same bowl, in the same position ... yup my conclusion is that they were microwaved. Our main course came eventually, and they were fine but there were easy fare (Philly Cheese steak etc.). Our waitress went AWOL so we served our-self water. At it wasnt just us, the table next to us had food problems and sent there food back as well. Given all the reviews here, not really sure what to make of our experienced. Service was rubbish but so was the kitchen. Perhaps they just cant cope if the place is busy? Perhaps they have a different chef on Sundays ? Either way, there was nothing in this experience that would make me go back. We were wishing we had just got the tacos from the taco van (which we didnt).

Our family really enjoyed this restaurant, which had something for everyone. The Thai curry was out of this word. Really good vegetarian meal. But they also had carnivore stuff that my son said was excellent. The outside seating was very nice. Altogether superb.

Nice location by the gazebo which has nightly music so we thought, lets give it a try.
Ordered some Begbie beer and settled into one of the outside tables. It started to rain and the waitress brought out a umbrella which worked great.

Ordered the curry dinner, 2 salmon and the veggie burger.

Veggie burger was good other dished we came away unsure of.
The curry dinner was okay but did not have much curry taste.
The salmon was a little uncooked and it did not have nearly enough mushroom sauce on it which made it rather a bland meal.

Yes I would return again because it seems to have potential but it would be the last time if the outcome was the same.
