It wasn't until we were seated & a waitress brought us menus that I noticed she was not wearing a mask. When I asked her about this she said she didn't have to, as did all the other staff members not have to. Food was...OK, service after that was unfriendly & when we paid the bill, we asked the cashier about non-wearing of masks. She said she had an exemption as did everyone who worked there & that kitchen staff didn't need to. Won't ever return to this restaurant. Have also reported them.More

Food was really nice, couldnt believe how big the cream lamingtons were, we were in cafe earlier in morning and was quite busy. Our coffees sat on bar for a few minutes until i went and got them. In all honestly i cannot say front...of house staff were very friendly, i thought this little town needed lots of visitors!!! Cant say service was memorable so wouldnt rush back.More

It’s Orange Covid19 level and I’m travelling with an immunocompromised friend and the staff are required to wear masks. But don’t. I spoke to one and she said the Police don’t care and she’s not sick so she’s not wearing one. It’s taken away any...enjoyment of the meal. Now I wonder what other health protection measures they don’t comply with.More

Great dinner - try the chicken green curry, beef cheek rendang and the sizzling beef - all delicious and well priced. Returned for coffee and brunch - yum! Great music - awesome staff 👍
