    The staff food and overall experience really good However there was No Prosecco only wine which I personally was disappointed with as Prosecco is my drink. I did not drink the wine. The manager brought me a desert which was on the house. The staff were excellent. Rosemary

    We were delighted to have discovered this little gem of a restaurant by chance. From the moment we were greeted at the door to our time of leaving we found the staff attentive, friendly and courteous. For such young staff we found them very experienced and professional. We ordered the bbq chicken wings, garlic bread and pizza and fries. The food was served promptly and was delicious. The waitress enquired if we needed anytime between courses and checked if we needed anything else during our meal. We would highly recommend visiting this restaurant and sample the delights for yourself. It was also excellent value for money. Top marks all round !! We will definitely be back.

    We had table booked for 6pm and arrived at 20 mins late. Felt like we were in trouble. Told very clearly they needed table back for 8pm We shared fig and pig flatbread which was yummy. I had Lasagne and salad which was good. We shared sweet potato fries (quite salty) my husband had love and hate pizza aka Hawaii Over all nice food, bit strange trying to be trendy place with art deco theme in old Frawleys. Handy for Vicar St. Would go back again

    The food was amazing as per usual. The only complaint is that it was hard to get a servers attention we had intended on getting dessert but no one came to check on us or ask us so we just got the bill. Wouldn’t put us off this place and would return as food is unreal!
