Went here for lunch last Monday. Put our order in at the bar and asked for two waters but had to help ones self at the bar to the water from a container. I thought this is a bar not a café and there was no ice. We ordered the Scotch Fillet with salad and chips which was cooked to... More

Was in Perth on Monday and decided to stop by and have a quick bit. Ordered the Lamb Pizz. It was delicious. Staff were very friendly. Meals came out in no time at all . Nice to go somewhere where you can just sit and talk and have no competition from the music.

Can't fault the friendliness and efficiency of the staff but the food that we ordered wasn't good value for money. My daughter bought a chorizo pizza which, when it came, was deconstructed. Interesting concept but not what we were after. My husband paid $22 for a mushroom salad which was mostly lettuce and only a handful of mushrooms. It was... More

We ordered the big plate as well and chips and a pasta. We paid $96 that included a bottle of champagne. I would have to say it wasn't a nice experience and I would never return. The guy at the bar who claimed to be the manager refused to give me his name because we sent a past dish back.... More

I ordered room service while staying at the Adina hotel. I ordered the steak cooked medium but it came out very rare and I basically just ate the bits I could cut off around the edges. The chips and salad however were great. I spoke with the hotel who arranged a half refund, since I was happy with half the... More

Decided to come here for lunch last week. The place seemed like a cool little bar with clean decor, a well set up bar, and newly renovated and very clean facilities. I ordered the $45 steak and my wife ordered the $22 Caesar salad. We won't talk about the 2 x $5 soda water which came from a Woolworths home... More

Met an old friend here for a catch up. Service was attentive and food was ok. Wasn't overly busy and got asked to finish up quite early as they were closing. Toilets were a bit of a hike to the 2nd floor next door in the gym. Decor was on trend and inviting. Good for a drink or two but... More

This is a nice pub. Ok service. Nice sangria. Not far from shopping and other landmarks. The toilets were a bit gross. Air conditioning was well regarded
