went for lunch with some work mates. Huge meals at bargain prices. If you want a proper pub meal where you don't have to pay extra for sides this place is it. I had a schnitzel with vegetables for $15.

Lots of locals know the OC as a great value pub.

In a highly competitive pub meal market, the Ocean Child is a standout. Great food at a very reasonable price, terrific service and a fabulous atmosphere made for a good night out, we will be back!

Went here for dinner last night and was both shockedand disappointed with my main course. I had the Aussie beef parmawith vegetables. My main peeve was with the accompanying vegetables, consisting of what was ostensibly stir fry type vegetables partially cooked and masked potato placed amongst thaose stir fry veggies.

The plate arrangement was atrocious. On the bottom were the veggies, intersperse with the mashed potato. On top of this concoction was the Aussie beef parma. It looked vile as plated.Not only was the plating unacceptable, since not every main course dish is supposed to be piled like this, but stir fry and partially cooked veggies are not what one expects as an accompaniment to a parma. The cook (I would not call the person a chef by any stretch of the imagination) urgently needs to go to cooking school to learn the trade properly, along with not to pander so much to human fads in piling everythoing on top of each other.

Your in a pub paying $15 .The menu clearly states steamed vegetables and mashed potato . In future use your words and ask for your vegies on the side.
