We really like it here. There is a good range of food, space for the kids to roam a little bit once dinner is finished and they get restless and dont feel it is frowned on.

Our daughter held her wedding at QPO and we were pleasantly surprised by the overall experience. Great food, excellent service and had lovely people who helped out with the wedding. We enjoyed QPO so much that we came back the next night for dinner in the restaurant. Again the food was good, portions perfect sized, dessert great and excellent coffee... More

Having some time to kill before an appointment, my wife and I headed to QPO. It's dead centre in the junction, so very easy to find. The food here is outstanding; the breakfasts were incredibly tasty and generously sized. The attention to detail was utterly incredibly, with PERFECTLY poached eggs and harmonious flavours throughout. The presentation was also beautiful, and... More

We ate dinner here as a party of 12 and had no reservation beforehand. Drinks and food were quick to come out and were of high quality. I can personally recommend the calamari and chorizo salad but the other stand outs were the enormous parmigiana and crab burger. One minor negative, the window blinds failed to block out the sun...

I visit this restaurant regularly with friends and family for brunch, afternoon tea and dinner. The food and drinks are great, the ambience good and the staff friendly and accommodating. I have also attended a business function there. I recommend this restaurant without any reservation.

We have visited QPO on many occasions over the past decade or so. Much like the nearby Skinny Dog this is a family friendly venue with good and efficient service. The menu is good, nothing super special but consistently good contemporary takes on pub style classics. We are always welcomed warmly and the staff always acknowledge & interact with our... More

We were able to walk in and get a table without a reservation bar to Christmas where everywhere else was booked out. This was an initial concern because of the popularity, was it good? Yes it was. It was a great meal and the service was spot on. A great spot to grab a meal.

We love to come here for breakfast and dinner. Until about one week ago, they changed the style of eggs benedict that we used to order. It was trully horrible! We cant eat it. Qpo smash still good, pizza and rissotto also still the same. Thanks God!!

We were in a group of 12 celebrating my birthday. Some of my friends said the food e.g. the steak was the best they had ever tasted. The service was also outstanding. My only negative was perhaps that it can get a little noisy but, still, I highly recommend this restaurant.

Celebrating our friends birthday at QPO. Beautiful food especially the White Chocolate Creme Brûlée. I've had many around the world but this is one of the best I have tried. Worth a visit just for that!!
