    The Beer Battered Queensland Barramundi was delicious & the view of the Lagoon perfectly topped off the night!

    The wine arrived on time, but our food seemed to take forever despite it being simple dishes. There was no atmosphere to the room, no music and nothing much to look at. The staff were friendly and seemingly efficient. Afterwards in the bar the atmosphere improved. Nothing special though. Just an ok meal and drink in an ok bar and reataurant.

    Perfect for our special occasion. The venue is beautiful and we all felt very comfortable and were there for the whole afternoon. I would definately recommend this restaurant for an intimate or private special occasion. The only thing that bothered me was the flies inside the windows on the verandah, where our table was. Also one table near us was not cleared at all the whole time we were there. But I liked that the staff were not bothering us at all.

    Over all not great we were seated and told to be quick to order as kitchen staff wanted to close kitchen. 45 minutes to get our first and only drinks we had finish starters and asked 3 times before they came. Some of food good but some properly cold ( Steak) but by then we had given up so didn't send it back.

    Table was not ready on time even though we had a reservation, food took 2 1/2 hours to arrive was cold and pasta appeared to be re-cooked as it was broken into pieces. Guest who came in without a reservation and demanded a table was seated right away and received their meal within 20 minutes of ordering, leaving myself and other patrons, shocked and confused as to what was going on with the Service! Way over priced for the quality of meal…would not recommend

    Lovely place to have lunch. Food was good. The table service was very slow, wasn’t busy seemed to be unstaffed. The service is everything when you dine out if you have good service you will have a return customer.

    Xmas party with lots of kids took up 2/3rds of the room, way too loud for such a small space. We Didn’t get food until 70 mins after arrival. The steak was one of the worst we’ve ever had anywhere in the works. My 19 year old son could have hooked it better than what we got. We Did get a free desert and staff were apologetic but it should never have been served. I thought the whole meal was expensive for what it was. The kids Xmas party should have been in a function room or they should have booked the whole area out. Very disappointed.

    We had a meat platte that looked like it was from Coles. No care taken in the presentation and for 40 bucks was a waste of money.

    Reservation booked for 7:45pm. We were seated and the waiter did not offer anything and was no where to be seen for 15-20 minutes, we had to find her to get table water. Then she went to get table water and disappeared again for another 5-10 minutes. We hadn’t even ordered our drinks or dinner at this stage. We ordered everything at once, the waiter seemed overwhelmed and confused. We could only see 3 other tables in the dining space, one of which left due to not receiving their order either. We waited until 8:40pm and we had still not received any of our drinks or dinner. This extremely poor service all round resulted in us cancelling the reservation and leaving the restaurant. Everyone around us was complaining and the whole vibe was awful due to the poor service. I have never seen such poor service in hospitality, it was shocking!
