Had Sunday lunch with friends, The service was abysmal We ordered entrees and mains, The mains arrived and 10 mins after the entrees arrived ?? The table we were given was very small for 6 people asked to be moved to a table that sat 6.. But the food was excellent and reasonably priced.

This has always been a great place for a meal and this visit was no exception. The restaurant was at full capacity and a reservation is vital if you eat to eat here,  especially on a Friday or Saturday.  As such parking is a bit of an issue.  They do have some parking but this was completely full as was street parking.  It was a very long walk having to park nearly a kilometre away, luckily it wasn't raining.

They had a decent array of meal choices and everyone enjoyed their meals. The staff were exceptionally busy but did a great job in attending to tables. This building has a lot of history as most Guildford sites do. At any rate, we enjoyed our dinner and evening out.

Booking was difficult. You can text a mobile number, book via Facebook or book via their website which uses the same system as Facebook and then has set times which may not suit. Best to phone call when they Are open! We ordered the seafood risotto (7/10 rating as it had a lot of liquid in it), the barramundi (8/10 rating as the pea mash was strongly flavoured) and the lamb shank (8/10 rating as the spuds were bland, the broccoli was very hard and it needs a sauce). The noise level is loud so it can be hard to hear a conversation from across the table. The dessert was the chocolate fondant and was an absolute winner! 0/10 rating! Oozy and gooey goodness! The service was polite although we stood in the doorway for quite some time before we were seen to to be seated. Id recommend this place if u can handle loud noisy environments and have an entertainment book.

We went on a Saturday Morning and it was quite busy, we didnt book a table, so we understood if we couldn't get in - however the waitress was quiet rude about us not booking and was quiet huffy about us being there.

That being said, fantastic menu and amazing food, the chefs have nailed a fab fusion brunch menu that I would highly recommend.

Out the front of the restaurant Menu advertises 5 prawns for $25 - we were charged $31 and told the prawns were probably big ones as why we only got 5 for $31 with 3 sml slices of bread & sml butter - thought we should have received a free coffee or refund of $6 - not good value.
