Upon arrival, I was warmly greetedby the staff, although I was already aware, I was told that I place my meal order at the counter. Although I hadn't made a booking and was seated quite easily on a busy Friday night. Once again, the menue provides plenty of options. The meal was the usual great tasting and a joy to... More

The Terrace bar has so much potential and yet its a total nightmare. Sufficient service staff worked on the floor but yet you have to order at the counter, it make absolutely no sense. It's not practical at all and in the end you pay as much as any other restaurants around that offer proper service. No table service result... More

This pub could easliy be the best pub in Lismore. It is modern and clean with two great areas to dine. Good selection of beers and menu of nice food at a reasonable resturant pricing. Terrace balcony is a great spot to take a group or smaller intimate gathering.
