Waitress did not know where lamb or beef came from. This is a restaurant that has won many awards for their red meat dishes. She didn't offer to find out. My steak was very disappointing. It was a steak I could have got at Countdown. Veggies etc were dull. I didn't 't say anything to others at the table as... More

Table of 14. Firstly no complaints with the Waiter, he was brilliant and patient and obviously had to put up with some major issue in the kitchen. Entrees were good, only 7 of us got them and they came quick and were tasty. I had the duck spring rolls, they were delicious, others had mushrooms and the prawn/scallop mix was... More

Worst restaurant Ive been to in some time. There was not enough staff on and we waited for everything far too long. I even had to go and ask for dessert menus at the bar. 3 out of 4 of the meals were okay (fish) but the 4th was inedible and we only got 20% off the meal..pretty poor really!... More
