Tables are dirty and sticky. Waitress offered a Shiraz as a white wine. Bread came with a supposedly apricot chutney dip but tasted more like a sweet Chili jam. Disgusting. 2 scallops came on a puffed pastryI I soggy barely cooked just looked terrible. And the best for the end; pork belly. If you don't know how to microwave it... More

My partner and I went for dinner as we used to come alo the time for amazing food and drinks. Not sure if it's a new owner but it has definitely changed. The food we ordered was ok, but tasted like it had been store bought, defrosted and cooked. We asked for a chicken pizza but they had no chicken... More

Great food, funky decor, indoor and outdoor seating. The restaurant is tucked away in Asian Alley on the upper level. You must be able to walk up a flight of stairs to reach the restaurant.

Awkward walk up an umimpressive stairway, but once you're inside you're transported. Warm and inviting atmosphere with friendly, prompt service and fab coffee. My piccolo latte was served with a couple of tiny teddies, which I thought was very cute. Highly recommended. Will be back after dinner for an espresso martini.

Casual dining with a hint of retro, centrally located in the heart of Surfers Paradise. Great selection of tapas-style eats, washed down by some taste red house wine and craft beer for my partner. Loved the pork crackling - best I've ever had. Crispy on top, fatty under, with port meat as well. Mouth watering.

Waited 40 minutes and it wasn't a full house. Food came out and we found all 6 poached eggs (3 dishes) to be literally boiled eggs. We were too hungry to complain and reject it. Please please ask the waitresses how long the wait will be for the food to come out before placing an order.

Thank Yueh Sern T
