My daughter and I stumbled across this restaurant for a quick lunch. Her priority was to get her phone charged with only 4% left and needed her maps app to find her way around. My charger wasn't working and the staff were lovely at trying to make it all work for us. Just delightful. We sat inside, service was quick... More

This is a great restaurant for a meal and a chat. We had a group of 7 and it was easy to hear each other and the food was great

I ordered through deliveroo.com.au for 3 people. We selected one seafood pizza, one lamb and a garlic bread (which turned out to be in pizza form rather than bread). Delivery was quicker than expected and the service was friendly).All were hot, tasty and satisfying with ample amounts of topping.

Thought we'd try this place out on a week night since we had just moved local. Sat outside and waited for ages for either of the 2 waiters to make eye contact even though they were serving the few tables next to us and standing at the inside bar talking to bar staff. Eventually we were given menus and we... More

We were randomly looking for somewhere to eat after the Grand Final before a long drive the next day. The Blue Room is not as formal as it sounds and we enjoyed the food and a chat with the owner. There's a good range on the menu at reasonable prices and the wine prices are acceptable. Service was very good... More

We went here for a late lunch after visiting the markets on a Sunday. Nothing on the menu took our fancy so we just ordered chips and salads plus drinks. 2 salads, 2 chips, 1 coke and 2 milkshakes cost $51.50. I thought this was overpriced for the quality of food we were served.

There's a reasonably wide range of dishes at good prices. Staff are attentive and helpful. Easy street parking in the evening. Can get busy and a bit noisy but this is a good sign of its popularity.

I went here in a large group. The atmosphere was good, the service very good and the food very enjoyable. The menu is modern Italian, with pizza, pasta, steaks and some fish. The main course menu had lots of choice and all of our group enjoyed their food. The starter menu is more limited but we chose a selection of... More

We shared the caesar salad (excellent), and the half lamb, half funghi pizza. The pizza was excellent - particularly the funghi side! Very nice service too!
