Wine and beer prices, and food great value. John Dory breaded with chips and salad, chicken avocado salad delicious with good vegetables. Funky, warm atmosphere, deck for warmer weather and evenings. Servers efficient and pleasant, would return for more, curries, pizzas if going to be here longer!!! Convenient walking from any of the hotels.

We stayed in Fox for two nights so chose two different restaurants. This place is lively, probably better for younger people. Menu had sufficient choice to be interesting but nothing out of the ordinary. Chose the chicken curry - was asked whether I wanted it mild, medium or hot which was a nice touch. It was a Thai green curry... More

As i was staying at the Motel side of it, it was only going to happen that i would spend sometime there - It has a good relaxed feel where you can just chill and meet people, from beers and meals in the two undercover areas or inside where you can watch sports or play pool...

This was really the only time on our trip were we felt like we did not belong. Even though our waitresses spoke english, there seemed to be a major breakdown in communication. We came in and were unsure if we were to be seated ourselves or wait, and when we asked the staff they seemed more confused then us! This... More

Dear Guest, At the onset I would like to comment that we are a very busy and a big restaurant in terms of covers. Our server invariably escorts each and every guest to the table and take their orders. During busy times,we expect the guest to wait when they enter for a server to escort them. We employ servers from... More

Since we were staying over here for a couple of days, we had to try the place out for at least one meal. We friends are more of a chicken crazy lot with an exception who defines more is less. Turns out that we ended up having two or I think three meals here. Overall the food was in one... More

They had the least expensive hamburger in town, but it was about $14 USD. It very good, however. My wife had their fish & chips, and the meal appeared to be short on the fish. Not a good value in my opinion. The place is just OK; nothing great. Their menu did, however, look less expensive than the others we... More
