We went here twice for breakfast. 2 couples and we all had delicious breakfasts. Highly recommend the Big breakfast.
All the meals were very generous and really nicely presented. Lovely coffee too.

I order braised lamb the meat just fell apart it was delicious. It was a huge meal
but I was not impressed with the presentation there was too much food on the plate it was plopped on the plate. It was definitely a masculine meal.
I had an issues with the amount of flies in the restaurant we were constantly flicking them away. It is something that the restaurant needs to address.
The service was very good.

Very busy and obviously popular. Our experience was rather ho hum but perhaps it was because it was a public holiday and they were rather overwhelmed, Coffee was ok but not great. Savoury cabinet food quite nice. Couldn't get past noise and only just ok service. Will maybe give it another go when in town.

My friends both had pork belly and loved it. I had the seafood chowder.
Although plenty of seafood it would have suited me to have less liquid and be thicker.
I could not finish the sauce there was so much.
Service and ambience excellent.
