we went here with our (adult) grandchild as a treat. But it was all such good fun and good food and wine that we would happily go back on our own. Service was friendly, relaxed efficient and, given the numbers, very quick. Really fun experience.More

All I can say is the food is great with big portions the atmosphere is excellent but can be loud and is a little on the expensive side for burgers but I would recommend as a treat or special occasion.

Probably about a 20 to 30 minute walk. Go along South and North bridge onto Princes St, along St Andrews St into St Andrews Square the left onto George St, not far down on L/H/S.
