I have been there 3 times for dinner. Its service was terrible and there is no sign of improvement. Staff were having a nice conversation between themselves before they will serve customers. They can pretend that you are not even standing half meter away at the counter. I saw a lady was arguing her steak was covered in pepper and... More

If you're on a budget it seems that pubs are not the go anymore. Once upon a time you could get a great meal at a pub for a reasonable price ...but those days are long gone. Bring your wallet with you. If you're not concerned about price some of the meals range up to $41.90 Surf and Turf so... More

The meals were affordable, huge, and delicious! Service was fast and friendly. We ended up coming back again during our stay at the Mantra as we were so impressed.

Great pub. Right across from the beach. Good food, friendly staff. Have $10 cocktails (not all cocktails they have a list of the $10 ones) my favourite is the Margarita and they made a pretty good one. 3-5pm Monday- Friday.

The salt bar beach bar and bistro is located at peppers on salt and behind Mantra on salt. i paid $34 for a meal that a school student could have made in cooking class. The only saving grace was that the 200g steak was cooked well. The salad looked like it came out of a prepared bag and the so... More

Well it is a pub type venue after all - my steak was tough and my fries soggy and only just warm. I've had better steaks in other pubs. It is much cheaper than eating at the other restaurants located outside the Mantra. There are a few things to choose from on the menu so that's a bonus - something... More
