We expected great things from previous reviews but it did not deliver. Though the service was friendly, the menu outside did not match that inside (many items were crossed out) and we found our fish burgers tasted rather average - and were almost definitely made...with frozen fish. This was a disappointment at a ‘gourmet burger bar’.More

A good little spot for lunch or dinner. We had pulled pork and fish burgers, the burgers are big and come with beer battered fries. The drinks list is long and extremely well priced. Great to sit outside in the sun.

We had the chicken burger and pulled pork burger, both of which were very tasty and felt nice and fresh. The fries were cooked perfectly. The staff were very smiley and welcoming.

What a wonderful experience at this fun and friendly bar. The tapas we had were delicious.... don't think I've ever had such perfectly cooked fries, but everything was first class. A delightful hostess and great ambience. Don't miss this little gem!

This place was recommended to us by a local and did not disappoint. Small place with great ambiance. Choices are limited but any requests for dietry requirements are happily considered and checked. Soy and dairy free was no problem. On rugby game nights it may...be busy. Very kids friendly. There is mainly bar stool type of seating inside. We were very early for dinner with kids so we had plenty of choice .More

Visited with a group of 6 while holidaying in Kuratau. Staff were friendly and the food was for the most part good. 4 of us ordered the Venison burger and 2 ordered the Chicken Burgers. 3 Venison Burgers were great - the meat was tender...and the relish was a good match for flavor. The 4th Venison burger to arrive came to the table last and unfortunately was chewy and overcooked which was a bit inconsistent. The Sriracha Chicken was delicious - the spice was present but not overwhelming, very tasty. One are for improvement would be speed of service - we waited almost half an hour for our meals to come to the table and the service was so spread out that the first of us to get served had almost finished eating by the time the last meal arrived to the table. Ultimately this is a decent, friendly place with good food but some room for improvement.More

Did a phone order. Got to Rust pick it up and was told they couldn't do the venison burger! So had to wait an extra 20 minutes at least. Took food out to car, checked it, crumbed camembert was missing, so went back and waited...almost 10 minutes, food was getting cold. Beef burger was ok, but "fried chicken thigh" was clearly pan fried not coated and fried so it's crispy like every other burger or chicken place means when they say "fried chicken", so that was disappointing. crumbed camembert was nice.More

Terrible customer service, forgot our meal so we waited 50 mins, was really rude to us and didn’t apologise once. Also refused to give us a refund.
