“Please listen Customers diettary needs”
Reviewed 4 April 2017

Recently my wife and I attended a function at the restaurant, My wife has a dietary issue with anything prepared that has oils, Fat, Dairy etc as a component. This makes it very difficult in even thinking about going our got meals. Due to the fact the function was an important one we went, I rang and spoke to the head chef on 3 seperate occassions explaining the issue, each time they assured me they could cater for her to save her embarrassment on ordering a meal with the others in the group and feeling normal this was not the case on the day . Even the Vegan salad was not truly vegan on questioning

However after three attempts at her order of a simple salad, with no oils/dressings etc, one of our friends at the table offered to assist, in preparing a salad.
This time they got it right . On a side note the waitresses voice will certainly get your attention

“50th birthday lunch”
Reviewed 20 March 2017

Hi Jo & Reuben

Just a quick email to say a big thank you to you and all the staff who looked after us at my 50th birthday lunch on Saturday. We all had a wonderful afternoon and the service of the staff, the yummy food and the setup provided upstairs was fabulous. I will certainly be recommending your restaurant to others.

Thanks again, yours sincerely Michelle 

“Right on the square”
Reviewed 17 March 2017 via mobile

What a great spot and I'm always partial to coffee being served with a chocolate fish even without having to order a mocha! Friendly, nice outdoor area and a good place to meet

“Nice cafe”
Reviewed 15 March 2017 via mobile

Stopped in for a hot drink and a muffin. Nice close location in the inner city. It was a beautiful day so wish I could have stayed and enjoyed the sun longer

“Really tasty tempered with indifferent attitude”
Reviewed 25 February 2017 via mobile

Very tasty Salmon special (with cous cous, yoghurt, green beans, pumpkin purée) and delicious fillet steak cooked beautifully. Only disappointments were the kids rock hard chocolate cake and the staff lack of concern at hearing an adverse comment. Service was efficient for the main course but then really, really slow for the kids dessert. Attentiveness dips when they get busy.
