My overpriced lasagne came out cold. I returned it and received a fresh replacement that was also cold. Service was terrible. When we left there was an apology and we were told we wouldn't be charged for the lasagne. Very nice of them considering it was inedible. Steer clear.

Terrible food, terrible service, dirty and toilets smelt like they hadn't been cleaned since 1986. Pricing was a joke. Not even for a retro flashback should you bother wasting your time and money! Disappointing to say the least!

Looked promising but bitters a real let down. Steak ordered med rare but came out nearly burnt, it was hard to get waiters attention, the bread rolls will the meals was burnt. The toilets were very dirty and the bins overflowing. The list could go on. We will not go there again.

This restaurant has a great menu that caters for a variety of tastes. Did find prices for meals extravagant, $7 for a bowl of side salad - that wasn't dressed. Meal was nice though.

We visited City Extra prior to seeing a show. We allowed plenty of time (or so we thought) to order and eat. We selected the dinner value meal, which was good value for a main meal and dessert. After placing our orders (for both main and dessert) we waited almost half an hour for the main to arrive. The meals... More

Fine for a working meeting. Even on a Sunday. Middle of the range prices but clean for paperwork. Parking station close by as street parking hit n miss but outside free on Sundays if you're lucky. Pub next door.

Went there last night for dinner, greeted with an unfriendly manner and pointed to a booth and said 'sit down'. We got no cutlery with our dinner, Servers would only look at us and not take our orders. When served dinner, sauce was missing, we told them, the server said "its there look around the plate" and then walked away.... More
