    We ate there out of convenience and the menu looked appealing. The table we had was jammed in against a group of boisterous women speaking loudly in a native tongue. One meal was reasonable (salmon). The other very salty and poorly presented (zucchini fritters with very salty feta cheese). After the plates were removed it took a long time for the waitress to come back and when she did asked if we had ordered our meals yet. We advised we wanted to see a dessert menu which was brought. There was no effort to social distance. We guarantee we will never consider eating there again.

    Online booking requesting quiet table for elderly mother, instead seated right at front door. Regular latte instead of mug delivered. Pumpkin pizza base was probably the best part as toppings were scarce & rocket on the turn. Staff aware dirty water slopped on mums cutlery & made no attempt to clean or apologise. Would say if there was more competition in fed square that was too pricey Time Out would have to lift their food quality & service.

    Took a chance as we're new in town and didn't know a lot about where to eat on Christmas Day. Time Out experience was salvaged by good food and a great little server. The turn offs were chaotic seating on wobbly tables. Toilet facilities turned out to be public restrooms next door that were flooded and filthy. Not very organized for a holiday dinner, but alas..... it was okay. Not great. Just okay.

    The food was fresh. Bread presented and baked beautifully. The calamari must have been caught that morning it tasted that fresh and the other entrees were great too. Main I had steak which was a bit fatty but cooked to my liking. My mates was perfect though. Desert was great and fresh again. Booze by the bottle was a bit expensive given the type of restaurant/Cafe.

    I requested room for a pram and a high chair when I made my booking. When I arrived, they had put aside a table without room for a pram. They took me inside instead (I had booked for an outside table) with no apology. Once inside, I asked for a high chair and was told they don’t have high chairs, I found this odd! The food was okay but not good enough to justify the high prices (especially given that there was a 10% surcharge simply for being a weekend). Obviously good location, and some of the staff were friendly.

    ordering was confusing as a burger was ordered assuming there was a side of chips. When no chips came we mentioned it and were told that chips were not a side order with the burger but could order bowl of chips. We were then told the chips were not coming and then 15minutes later they turned up. Didn't really need them then, and we still got charged. very confusing

    Food is good and caters for dietary needs, is busy and music can be a bit loud, the food is tasty but a little expensive for portion size, overall will return for another meal and would recommend it.
