The staff were friendly & helpful. The menu was a bit complicated in its description. I had the prawn entree, the avocado & the salad had the look, texture & taste of being prepared a lot earlier. The steak main was better but not as good as it could have been.

Well, well worth the price. Had the chicken dish and the chicken burger and I didn't want the meal to end. Only regret is not ordering dessert.
