I had the Zuppa di Pesce as i have had it here before and it was out of this world! Did not disappoint again! Although it could have... More

Incredible with fantastic food and excellent service. We had the rib eye and the swordfish and both meals were absolutely delicious. My steak was cooked perfectly and my wife who is a very fussy eater could not fault her meal. The dessert which was suggested to us by the waiter was heavenly. The atmosphere was great and we have already... More

Group of 5 out celebrating and we ordered seafood platter for 4. This was ample and we all left well satisfied. Platters have great variety, (prawns, oysters, mussels, calamari, bugs, char grilled octopus, salmon, fish fillets, scallops ) and not boosted by chips like some may do. Went for late lunch on a Sunday, did not book as it was... More

Booking at 7:30 pm orders taken by 7:50 pm food arrives at 10:10 pm after many discussions with the staff. Last main course for the group turned up at 10:30 pm after a friend had to go and tell the staff that 2 of the group had not received their meals. They were then asked what had they ordered !!!....

The absolute worst restaurant experience in my life. Arrived at 7pm and still didn't have any main meals at 9:30pm. We had enquired politely at about 8:30pm if the mains were on the way and were told that 3 tables were in front of us. By 9pm, I asked the manager what was going on, and was asked what we... More

Didn't have to wait very long to be served and the food was lovely hot and tasty. Our meal was about $80. 1 focaccia bread for starters, 2 main, 2 beers and shared dessert. Would definitely go...
