I had a salad which was really nice. I like this restaurant/bar. The meals are reasonable and there is a reasonable selection. There is a new chef and the food looked well presented. I often pop in here for tea on my way home. It...More

The food is affordable and tasty, the pokies really reduce the family friendly aspect and overall classiness but this actually suits its location in the southcity mall, just meaning a fancy restaurant would seem out of place. A definate step up from Burgerking, KFC or...More

We called in for the early bird roast special (only $10.90!) and had a delicious meal. Friendly, helpful staff made for a very pleasant family meal.
