We had breakfast here and it was Delicious! I had a Barbossa Benny, loved that this includes a good serving of baby spinach & hollandaise, my eggs were cooked perfectly to order and the portion size was awesome, my iced latte was also delicious. I took the photo mid meal coz I forgot & was enjoying it 😂. Definitely need to come back and try their lunch/dinner/cocktails.

I am a person who likes to share while I have a cocktail. The place is nice, it has a good atmosphere for conversation and you can also go with children who will be distracted playing. Now, the drinks have not been to my liking, I ordered a jug of mojito and it was tasteless, they did not do it well, in reality I think they did not know how to do it, since what stood out the most in that jug was the water, not the mint, I didn't have sugar. I felt like I lost my money.

Burger came out burnt see photos. The schnitzel was dry. Chips tasted dry and like Homebrand chips. Was also expensive for what it was. Come for the drinks but don’t expect too much from the food. Staff are great and so was the atmosphere.

Very disappointing visit. Staff were inattentive, even to the point of stopping taking my order to have a frivolous conversation amongst themselves. Ordered a cocktail jug, had to ask for glasses that weren’t hot, and was handed 2 different beer glasses, not the vibe when you are having a $41 cocktail jug. Kids meal only came with 4 chicken nuggets (menu states 5). Our entire party’s food and drinks was less than mediocre. Definitely wouldn’t recommend and won’t be back.
