Had lunch there yesterday. The owner and English waitress were excellent. Unfortunately my husbands medium rare steak was well done and my chicken breast average. No air conditioning just fans so would be very sticky on a hot day.

Called in as a spur of the moment decision to have lunch and we are glad we did as it was lovely. Great friendly service, cold beer and a sensational chorizo risotto were spoiled only by the very humid day and lack of air conditioning.....minor problems more than made up for with the superb meal and service.

Great food and very friendly staff. Service was a bit slow even though there weren't that many people. The Chef's Special was great and the spicy Linguine were an absolute dream!

Group of 6 friends (and a small dog which they accommodated) for lunch. Service was not rushed at all. We eventually ordered, food came in about 15 mins. I had the greek chicken burger, tasty but needed knife and fork. The others enjoyed their dishes also. It's a great location, however parking can be a challenge - we were 2... More

I ate breakfast here with my husband on a hot summer morning. It was New Years Day. There is no air con and the restaurant was stinking hot. We were unable to enjoy coffee. This place serves a very basic average menu. Bacon and eggs on toast, avocado, pancakes, milkshakes etc. Simple bread and their gluten free bread is the... More

A great location on Gympie Terrace overlooking the river. My 2 boys and I enjoyed our meals but my husband's steak that we paid around $40 for was very overlooked. He ordered medium rare and there was no pink meat.....very disappointing!

When I last visited this cafe for a business meeting I gave it a low rating. This week I visited again and had a much better experience. The coffee is very good, this food was also good and the service was vastly improved. I would consider dining here again.

Couldn't get a nicer location on the river, had the prawn and crab linguine lovely and fresh crab. My husband had sirloin and although was cooked slightly under how he likes it he said it didn't matter. Took our two year old and he lived the breads.

Went for a meal before the lunch rush. Food was very tasty, filling, and good value. We arrived before the lunch rush and the single waitress (Lauren) was able to keep up with the demands of a handful of tables (she played host, waitress, barista, and food runner). She provided prompt service, and was nice and friendly. I would definitely... More

Dropped in for a lunch here at the end of October. I had a great fish dish, whilst my wife select the ribs. An enormous plate of ribs arrived, but she demolished the entire plateful. Very pleased with the service and ambience. Lovely spot to just watch the world go by.
