They did not give us the instant win card which we were... More

Food was fantastic, really value for money, conveniently situated in the City Centre.Had a wide variety of food and the atmosphere was good, it wasn't too busy, although I think the weather had a role to play.The 'buy two get one free' steak meal deal is worth looking at on Thursday all day.

Took our order and then told us it was going to be 45 minute wait. Our food arrived in about 30 minutes which was ok. My beef is why... More

Still eating our entree and our mains arrived!!! Mains apparently put under the heat lamps and 5 mins later when they were redelivered both mains were luke warm. Meat of the crumbed schnitzel was off and the coating over cooked. Ribs were fatty and unappetising. According to policy they will not refund but offered to replace the meal which we... More

This restaurant has a good sized menu to please most people, but it is mostly bar food, burgers, fries etc. Meals were okay for the most part and average in price. Service was good.
