“Very Dissappointed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2013

After reading on Facebook that this restaurant had received a chiefs hat, we decided to try it.
We had been many time under the old ownership, so we thought lets give the new owners a try
What a Mistake, the menus were old and shabby, the service was appalling and to top it all off the food was average at best. After ordering a nice red, we asked to be decanted, the waitress had no idea what that was, then came back to inform us that they had broken the decanter . The food arrived for two at the table, then we had to wait for the other two meals as they had got lost somehow. Overall a very poor venue

“Astro turf? Really?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2013 via mobile

The venue was suggested for our catchup dinner because its central.
We started with a drink out front as the sun was setting. The venue was open for business and yet the bar man saw us - vanished then reappeared in a shirt ready to serve- odd.
Wine list is ok- prices are too high for the location- it's just a commuter suburb and we were sitting on astro turf.(that really did freak me out).
When we went into our table we were advised to place our orders before a table of 12... Which we dutifully did.
Water is not left on the table- the wine was and we topped up our drinks ourselves.
Meals were well portioned - not generous but sufficient. Of course there was little or minimal vege on the plate so "sides" would've been nice. We were surprised that sides weren't suggested when we ordered.
We sat with our empty plates for some time.
Once cleared, a jug of water suddenly appeared and no one came near us until we asked for the bill.
A table of women - we'd only ordered mains. It was a missed opportunity to sell overpriced dessert and coffee! Big mistake.
It was OK if OK is the aim- well done.

“Fantastic atmosphere, great staff, good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2012

My husband and I celebrated our third wedding anniversary at this restaurant. The waitress was lovely and really attentive which was nice. Our main meals were fantastic. However I wouldn't recommend the lemon curd tart for desert, I was really looking forward to that strong jaw clenching lemon taste but could barely taste any lemon and left most of the tart on the plate. Apart from that it was a really good night.

“A Local Favourite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2012

Been here again a few times over the last couple of months with family over from abroad. Great food, great cocktails, great service and atmosphere.
A local favourite, we’ll be back again soon.

“Overpriced and pretentious”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2012

We have been here a number of times and are usually disappointed. The food is overpriced and the quality is lacking. The drinks are extremely expensive and the staff act almost as if they are doing you a favour by serving you. I don't think we would bother returning with so many better options available in the same street - save your money
