Excellenymt food, great music, as well as all good, otherwise. Just the ubiquitous noise volume overall, preventing easyconversation, that we find problematic everywhere - just a building construction problem. Will be back, anyway!

Since their rump specials we have begun to dine in regularly - the food is always cooked perfectly and the bar staff and cooks are very pleasant - I love the atmosphere they set and even tho it gets busy the food standard stays at a high level - would definitely recommend

On the Hibiscus Coast, this is my regular go-to restaurant, especially on the Tuesday and Wednesday nights when they have their amazing special. But I still go other times, over and above most other restaurants in the area.

Looking forward to our next visit as a comparison to this first visit. The steaks were cooked to each person's liking. The mains were spot on. Desert was slightly lacking with no sauce on the sticky date pudding and the apple crumble segment was flat and did not keep it's shape being a cake slice otherwise the flavours were there. Good selection of beverages so something for everyone. Service was good and what lowered the score was having to request our wine as this was forgotten. Looking forward to our next visit.

The steaks were cooked perfectly as requested and the ribs were very tender. Our grand children felt the spaghetti sauce was a little too sweet. Always enjoy our meals there as the steak special is good value for money.

Love the charcoal flavour. We opted for the 300g sirloin this time, wow! I thought the 400g rump was big, but this seemed just as big! Best chips and gravy too. Service good, didn’t have to wait long for our food considering the restaurant was busy. Well done team!
