When we arrived at 623 we initially sat outside but we had to move quickly inside due to the wind. Staff were very pleasant and our food was good. Overall, a good experience.

We've had several bad experiences here. The first one was when we took friends out for breakfast. One of them ordered waffles with bananas and blueberries. They brought out a plate with what looked like pancakes and blueberries. When we queried this they said "The waffle machine is broken so we just cooked the mixture like pancakes. Oh, and we're out of bananas." The waffles/pancakes were so stodgy and gross that he couldn't even eat them. They still expected us to pay full price for the meal too!

We have always had to wait a ridiculous amount of time to first of all have our orders taken, but then to even get our food. This is despite there being plenty of staff around.

The last time (and I mean the last time) we went I ordered the beef salad. The salad was fine. The beef was not. It was mostly just fat and I put all of the fatty bits around the edge of my plate and you could tell that it was about 70% of the meat content. So disappointed - Not worth the $20 dollars I had to pay for it.

Then when we went to pay we tried to use the $20 worth of credit on our 623 card to be told there was no credit on there. Finally the guy found it but told us there was only $10 credit. At this point we thought, forget it we'll just pay (it had taked 8minutes to get to this point). Just as we're about to get the receipt, the manager comes over after overhearing the trouble and pressed some buttons and hey presto, there's our other $10 credit. But too late to use it on that visit. "Don' t worry," he says, "you can use it on your next visit". Doubt it - not worth the trouble. We should have learnt the first time. We won't be back.

Had a great time with great friends! Good selection of beers, drinks, and food. The service was fun and entertaining and the view is second to none!

Lovely waterfront cafe with Friendly staff. I had the pancakes and was disappointed with it as they had used very overripe bananas and they had that very strong taste. Also would like to point out no French toast on the menu. Seems to be quite common lately.
