Booked a table for 7.30, table wasn’t ready. Waitress didn’t know any of the specials. When asked what they were, she responded ‘I don’t know, I haven’t been asked that yet’. Food came out within 5min, which made us a bit skeptical and no cutlery,...waited over 7min, then asked for cutlery which they then brought over . They missed our friends meal that never came, then when ask there it was, to be told they no longer have that steak. Bad table service, bad food, bad restaurant. Go elsewhere for food.More

We enjoyed the Wednesday night special stone grill (two for one) recently. The waitress was very pleasant and we didn’t have to wait too long for our meal to be delivered to our table. It was delicious. Our overall experience was great and we would...certainly go back again.More

Very average food. I would be quite embarrassed to serve what was served to us. Service wasnt much better.

Called in for a meal later in the day. We appeared to be the only ones in the place (later saw there were a few at outside tables. Ordered a beer and our food. I had the fish and chips - plenty of it and...it was okay. Two of the others ordered the steak on a hot stone. They enjoyed it as well. The problem with the place is that it appears to be somewhat unclean. I'm sure they do clean up but I feel the place could use a comprehensive clean up especially the tables and chairs which just felt a bit sticky. Overall it was okay and we'd go back - with the proviso that the place gets a full commercial clean over. The young lady who served us was pleasant and she explained the stone business well.More
