The service is the only let down on my last three visits.
The food is amazing and the quantities are so large.
Great atmosphere especially on a nice sunny day.

Went for lunch, we loved this place and will definately be back, pricing average, great views, friendly and quick service but best of all the food and wine were amazing, had the house white and it was very nice (just wish it was twice as much haha), recommend the mediterranean salad and salt and pepper calamari.

.Fish & Chips presented not on a plate but in a large bowl similar to salad bowl overloaded
with chips and a salad without dressing. The fish was nicely battered but bland. shape of the bowl and a very small plastic container of sauce over a large amount of chips made cutting/ dipping a frustrating experience.
.Glass of wine was delivered in what would normally be used for juice or soft drinks.
. A lady at the checkout was presented with a NSW lunch voucher but she stated that it was a discover and not a dine voucher. Only after exiting the restaurant I looked at the voucher and it was a Dine voucher. This is not to say that the lady refused the voucher, but misread it, and I should have read it myself and corrected her, but did not follow-up.
.Wait staff were helpful, and serving times reasonable. More focus on food presentation, and dump surcharge.

We were a table of 6 enjoying our lunch until an extremely cocky young man can and handed us our bill 45 mins before our time was up
He argued and aurged about what time or booking was for ( made a huge fuss over 15 mins difference) after spending a good amount of money in our short 2 hrs we got his total arrogance

It’s always wise to remember to be humble no matter how busy you are your no better than anyone else and the fact that he proudly admitted to being the owners son after being so rude isn’t doing him any favours
My first time there and definitely my last l.

We all enjoyed our meals, only disappointing part was we were requested to finish our meal after one hour twenty minutes so they could address the next booking.

Restaurant is in a nice setting. Staff were friendly & efficient & it was good to see them doing a covid clean of each table as diners left. Unfortunately the seafood platter for 2 was disappointing. Having the gluten free option meant the seafood was grilled not fried - a big ✅ but the fish & scallops were over cooked to the point of being dry & the crab was tasteless.

Booked table as a business meeting for 5 people who had not met before but we’re unable to split bill even 2 ways which made for a very awkward end to the meeting. Especially as there were legal issues in accepting ‘gifts’ but staff were not interested in accommodating. The food was lovely however unfortunately a bird fouled one of the meals and by the time we were able to get staffs attention it was too late for a replacement given that we had another meeting to get to. Staff refused any kind of refund and although they offered to make a new one we were unable to take advantage of this.

We arrived to a very busy restaurant on a public holiday. Lucky we made a reservation. The friendly meet and greet gentlemen showed us our table. We had our drinks very quickly, which we enjoyed while waiting for our seafood platter, before we knew it , that fabulous meal arrived. Beautifully presented. If there was a downside, it was the hot part of the meal was a little cold, but still enjoyable. We will certainly be back. Providing we can get a car park.

So average. Wasn’t worth the drive. The seafood platter was really nice. The service was nothing beyond cafe service. And if you like Greek salads of only quarter chunks of tomatoes and two slabs of feta put on top. This is your place.
