The food is amazing here as is the decor. We came for lunch and had the fish and chips - fish was amazing but the chips could have been better. For dinner, we had the lamb which was cooked to perfection and inspired us to learn how to make polenta like that. The star of the jerk chicken dish had... More

Came here with 6 colleagues for lunch around Christmas time. The bar tender took longer to make 6 lemon lime & bitters drinks than it took for all of our food to be brought out, we waited really long. The food was lunch time snacks as it was a special menu for the bar only- but the restaurant was closed... More

A mix of clients and colleagues. The staff were fantastic, letting us know a trivia night would be happening and helped us with timing the meal orders before things got really busy. Food was excellent, no complaints from any of the parties at the table.

Long days travelling, thought we do a pub meal, were initially shocked at price but when the food was delivered and tasted we realised we were eating more than a pub meal. We had ratatouille, Vietnamese chicken salad, pulled pork burger and jerk chicken. Every meal had exquisite complexity and taste. Costs us $43 a head with a bottle of... More

I accidentally reviewed the hotel instead of restaurant! Great food, speedy attentive service with chocolate fondant to die for! Will definitely be back. Don't know what's changed there in the last couple of months but it's a change for the better! Thanks for a great dining experience 😊

Food was expensive so we were expecting very high quality which was not delivered also we had to explain to staff that steak knives should be served with ever steak not just by request. Even the 'steak' knives we received upon request were just slightly more serrated butter knives. All drinks have to come from the main bar inside so... More

Both nights I ate they were busy which is usually a good sign. Menu catered for all of the party, meat eaters and vegetarians which can be hard traveling in the Pilbara. Service was good but felt the food could be better. Both nights my group felt the chef was having an off night.
