Very rude staff and disrespectful behavior! One staff easily took stuff from the table we were sitting to put on the next table to keep the other customer happy! He didn't even ask if we needed the sugar for two pots of tea we were having! I was totally shocked! And the so-called manager didn't even apologise properly! We will... More

The breakfast menu catered to all tastes and if you could not find what you wanted or liked the staff were on hand to assist with a choice. Coffee was excellent but could have been a bit hotter. Freshly squeezed juice were beautiful and once again a small but exciting selection of combinations. The food service was prompt and really... More

As our family was staying at the Mantra Trilogy, this great restaurant on the Esplanade proved to be only a short walk from our accommodation and an ideal location for our family to enjoy both breakfast and lunch. The restaurant overlooks the esplanade and indoor and outdoor seating is available.The breakfast menu was comprehensive with an excellent array of dishes... More

Visited with my wife and 8 month old and wasn't the best experience, the food was average and the service was below average, we didn't feel as if our baby was very welcome either

We were staying at the nearby Shangri La hotel. This place is very well located, so very popular and almost always full. We were lucky to get a table on the terrace. The service is fast and efficient. The food is ok but nothing special. Nice location though to watch life go by

Had dinner in the restaurant one night -- pretty good food but service was slow and felt pretty ignored all night. Did the takeaway pizza special another night. Great deal for about $13 -- get a personal pizza. Would defiantly recommend doing that

Thought it would be a nice place for lunch, we were a group and ordered a selection of pizzas but we're disappointed with the food and service. While we were eating I saw two people walk past then back with pizzas from somewhere past our Italian ( pizza restaurant), which was possibly a sign we should have observed . There... More

Had a lovely breakfast here with my wife. The french toast was delicious and the waiter was hilarious. A very amusing start to the day. Enjoyed.
