I wandered in here by mistake, looking for another restaurant. But I was in and seated before I realised, and too tired to go out looking elsewhere. The pluses - Well located, in the heart of Mackay. Quite well-patronised for mid-week dinner. Décor is attractive, and comfortable. The service is excellent, friendly and attentive staff. I had the gnocchi, well... More

A very pleasant evening meal with the new BURP menu. As always, professional yet non-intrusive attention to customers throughout the dining experience. The new menu is welcome!

Service was great but the food was lacklustre. Each of us ordered dishes that we have had several times and they were terrible in comparison. My eye fillet looked beautiful and looked to be cooked perfectly but it was chewy and tasteless. Even the accompaniments were tasteless. My husband didn't even want to finish it. His lamb dish wasn't cooked... More

Had booking in the fine diner part of the business but chose to eat in the Tapas bar, What an inspired choice. We loved it! Beautiful food and plentiful too. Great staff, friendly but unobtrusive! Tapas bar owners should "bench mark" this place to see how it's done.

While a bit pricey for some dishes, all dishes are well made ticking the boxes on taste, flavour combinations and presentation. Topped off with attentive and polite staff who leave you to enjoy your meal.
