Staff slow 1/2 hr for coffee which was awful. Staff working at snails pace. Table and surrounds dirty need to clean. We brought visitors from eastern states and embarrassed. Park beautiful but this needs to be backed up by cafes etc. food leftovers with blood on chicken bones hope no one gets ill.

Been a few times here , great location but food standards have slipped it seems ?
Went yesterday for lunch with my wife and we ordered chicken wings to share (nice ) and Turkish bread and hummus with olives.

Impressive amount of bread and it was nice but no way was there enough hummus and olives - disappointing guys , your dish was let down by us having to ration the hummus and olives between all the bread !

These minute portions would prevent me ordering it again which is a shame .

Sadly dull food and awful service.

Maybe they were short of staff, maybe the management were on an 'away day' but chaos would be a fair assessment today.

Orders were misplaced pr wrong, tables not cleared, waiting staff were wandering about looking for the right customer (they were probably looking for someone who had given up and left).

When it did arrive (wrong, and after a reminder and age of waiting) the food was dull - perhaps it had been left on a counter too long?

If this cafe is run by the City they need a new manager, if it's a franchise then somebody needs to look at the service standards they are supposed to meet.

We visited the cafe for lunch and were disapointed with the quality of food.
The miso salmon salad we ordered, turned out to be a small plate full of kale, few pieces of beetroot and salmon, which looked and tasted like it was taken straight out of a tin can. No trace of orange and citrus dressing or miso flavour mentioned in the menu. That dish was completely tasteless, like eating grass ;) Kudos to the waitress - when we complained about the salad, she offered to exchange it for a different salad, no questions asked. So, we got a white chicken salad with bean shoots, herbs and sesame soy dressing as a replacement. It wasn’t the best salad we’ve ever eaten, but at least it had a taste of soy.
The other dish we ordered was a pizza - pumpkin, spinache, carmelised onion, fetta and pine nuts. The toppings were tasty, unfortunately the dough wasn’t in the oven for long enough.
After this experience, we will not be coming back to eat there, even though the view of the city was pretty good.
