Restaurant details
Reviewed 9 February 2020

Paid $28 for a steak that you couldn't cut with the wooden cutlery. Broke 2 forks trying to cut it. They would only cook the steak medium ... how lazy is that!! Chips were cold. Very disappointed in the meal. We have been there twice recently and the 1st experience wasn't much better. We won't be returning.

Really popular and for good reason, if you can nab a table on the deck and enjoy the view as well as the food. The gluten free options are very limited but I really enjoyed the mussels (for the last time - had an appalling experience with mussels elsewhere after this). My friends enjoyed their fish and chips, and we all would happily return.
