Not particularly busy at 10.30 and seemed to be enough staff. Just ordered 2 coffee and milkshake which took ages. Other people's brunch looked ok.

I didn't think the restaurant was as bad as others are making it out to be. It's a small cafe, though I'm noticing a trend of them running out of items. While we were there they ran out of scones.

Had a great lunch in this restaurant among the plants and trees of this park. The barramundi and salad was fantastic especially with a glass of wine. I topped it of with a nice Spicy Apple with Vanilla and Ice Cream.
