Not long ago I went to another restaurant and ordered some ribs as a part of my meal (for the sake of anonymity, we can call that place "Sone Ltar"). Long story short, I was beyond disappointed with my meal and will likely never order...ribs from Sone Ltar again. My wife and I had decided to return to Freeport for our anniversary after a delicious visit several months ago... so we did. I ordered the St Louis style ribs (again). Oh boy. This is how ribs are supposed to be made. Perfectly cooked, slid off the bone easily, LOTS of meat, delicious sauce. I literally licked the sauce off the bone. I wish I had more stomach space so I could have ordered another helping. The pizza is good too - it's Italian-style oven baked pizza with a thin base and thick crust. Don't expect fast food-style (still tasty). The chili prawn pizza could have used a few more prawns, especially if you tend to eat the toppings before the rest of the pizza. Service: 8/10 Speed: 9/10 Quality for price: 10/10 Pizza: 7-10/10 (depending on day) Ribs: 15/10 tl;dr version: GET THE RIBS!More

Went to Freeport for a birthday celebration and were well looked after. Sun was coming in our eyes so we asked to move tables and got moved to a fantastic booth. The food was exceptional and the service was very attentive. There was even a...special treat for the birthday girl!More

We held a small function for our gender reveal and the whole thing experience from booking with the team to serving out guests was amazing! Every request was promptly met with a helpful smile we couldn’t have asked for a better team.

Antipasti - fabulous. F&C - great. Haloumi salad - underwhelming. Dessert - lovely. Service - very good. My disappointment with my salad was handled very professionally, and simply on that point alone we will be happy to return, but also, as the rest of the...meal was great, we will be happy to return anyway.More

We were asked to wear a mask, which we did, but the waitress was very rude about asking us to. We were in there for 25 minutes with four other people in there and no one served us. So can’t confirm if the food or...drinks were good.More

Hi Karen, Yep the Mask wearing thing is a bit niggly and a sign of the times, and we are all trying to work within the guidelines. If you can please let me know the date and time you were in we will look into...More

Great service and lovely very cold Corona's. Nice location and layout. I had salt and pepper squid entree, i eat it often, but this was very salty, i couldn't get through the whole plate. Tuna Ceviche was presented lovely, but missing the magic, flavour wise.Hubby's...Southern fried Chicken was Ok.More

So many delicious choices! We decided on Fish Tacos and the Sothern fried chicken and chips. Yum!! Meals of those around us of pizza and Caesar salads looked awesome too - very generous portions. Even convinced for something sweet with their delectable desserts and loaded...shakes! Will definitely be back.More
