The food took hours to come out. One of our party ordered at 8.30pm n didn't get her food till 10.30pm. Drinks also took 30 to an hour. Even when the crowd thinned out the service didn't get better and our orders were frequently messed up and they tried to charge us for the messed up order. Not recommended!

Lunch time, service and meals came quickly however 3 of the 5 dishes missed the mark in regards to freshness and consistency. Great location and was better last year. Understandable somewhat due to the time of year but.....

Ordered 9 dishes between the 2 of us. They do a deal 3 for $24 but there were so many yummy options we ordered more Highly recommend Lamb skewers Lamb cutlets Fiah and chips Spicy meatballs Don't go the soft shell crab. It was pretty awful. Other than that it's a good midweek place to grab a meal

They have a set menu of about 20 tapas dishes. I tried about six of them and they were not too bad. Nice and friendly service. Very relaxing and casual atmosphere.

Sunday night dinner for 2. Not busy but surprisingly good selection of dishes prepared efficiently and with excellence. Expansive menu from seafood to red meats. Value for money indeed.

This sort of Cafe is an acquired taste. We attended with the family, (Grandparents, auntie and uncle, parents and granddaughter). Auntie and uncle will not go again but the rest of them may.

Last night in Hervey Bay and was looking for a quaint place to eat. This place hit the mark and to make it extra special the extensive drinks' menu was incredibly reasonable. Added to a lovely meal in a modern and relaxing space!

Was very busy on a Saturday night. Due to the lack of something so unique in the area I am gathering this is the reason why... Food wasn't bad, but wasn't spectacular. Espresso martinis went alright though! ( $12 is amazing considering in Sydney they average $22) In a do over I would still go back because tapas is always... More
