Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 October 2013 via mobile

I live within walking distance of this place. In the 7 years i have lived near it, I have been there only a couple of times.

The food was OK, but very expensive.
The service is average and the chef/owner doesn't seem very friendly.
There is no children's menu, so we ordered an entrée sized spag bol, which cost about $20 for a 7 year old.

Nothing makes me want to go there again.

Thank ReneNZ

Waited over an hour for our meals to arrive, charged $35 corkage for 2 bottles of wine and $40 for two small plates of bread!!! This is a suburban cafe, not a high street restaurant!!!

We live locally and many times have thought of going, we finally did but after the wait and seeing the bill wont be heading back anytime soon.

It was saturday night , We were a group of 7 and celebrating my partners birthday. They had 2-3 staff in the kitchen plus a waiter and only had us and two other tables so not that busy. Entrees were around $15-20 and mains were around $25, pizzas were $29 although easily shared between two people.

We arrived at approx 7:15 our orders were immediately taken with the table just ordering mains. We were offered bread which we initially declined but our waiter was very insistent so we conceeded and ordered mixed bread for the table.

The bread came out after about 15 minutes and consisted of two small plates with 3 types of breads cut into small bite size pieces. All in all about 6-7 small slices of bread, which was delicious!

Restaurant was BYO wine only, we bought 2 bottles of wine for the 6 of us who were drinking, however $35 for corkage was over the top and ridiculously high for 2 bottles of wine.

It took well over an hour for our mains to arrive so we were grateful for the read but horrified to find out after receiving the bill that they charged $40 for two small plates of bread.

The meals were OK but not exceptional, Before our meal, my partner commented that we should come here more often it has a lovely atmosphere and always good being a local restaurant, however after the ridiculously long wait and and outrageous charges for the small amount we ordered we won't be going back.
