Ideal for a relaxing lunchtime meal removed from the usual shopping centre type noise & distractions. The meals were enjoyable, perhaps slightly more expensive than the shopping centre. Meal choices were limited which actually was fine as not overwhelming like many eateries can be. Meal size was sufficient for lunch & a complimentary glass of wine was offered. All staff... More

It took forever to get our meals and the staff was quite unfriendly. It's a shame because the place it's quite nice. The manager was quite unfriendly to us.

Despite my better judgement, I decided to give the Dragonfly Cafe at Eden Gardens one last try, mainly because I was meeting a friend at the nursery. This time we were served by a friendly young woman, which was much better than the very rude experience last time. BUT the food was awful. The menu had so little choice it... More

We had breakfast on a Sunday in March for four people. We arrived around 9.45am and we were seated within 10 minutes. It took at least 30 minutes before our waitress took our order. After waiting another 30minutes after ordering we were told that one of the meals was not available. 15 minutes after that the first of the four... More

We love the atmosphere and the nursery so have been regular customers. However, there have been far too many situations of staff being rude and perhaps racists. This is not limited to one particular staff but the entire crew in general. We thought we'd give one more try today but the situation has not changed. The management needs to replace... More
