The ambiance was fantastic, setting the stage for a memorable dining experience. From the warm lighting to the cozy decor, every detail contributed to a welcoming atmosphere. While the steak portion seemed a tad small for its price, and the Heat Waves cocktail had a bit too much kick with the jalapeño juice, everything else was delightful. The attentive service and flavorful appetizers elevated the evening, and despite those minor hiccups, my friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our time together. We left feeling satisfied and already planning our next visit to explore more of the menu. Overall, it was a wonderful evening filled with good food, great company, and a charming ambiance that we won't soon forget.

I enjoyed my brunch experience here as the food was delicious, the staff was attentive. This place has both indoor and outdoor seating area with a nice Yarra river view. Price wise is decent and not considered a fancy brunch compared to many other places in the city. I had the salmon egg benedict with toast which was very filling and this place has a good coffee as well. This would be such a good option as they opens in the morning and it is in a perfect location.

Impressive. This place has got it right when it comes to fast efficient and friendly service. Great coffee and magnificent location. I was after a quick breakfast and was in and out in 20min. Some venues take that long to bring you a menu. Next time I go will be with friends for a longer sitting so you can truely enjoy the riverside location.

Found the place by accident and decided to try out. Reasonable range of food on the menu which was not too overpriced. The meals were well portioned. The staff were very friendly. With the service, it was very good. Location of the restaurant was very good. Tables available inside and outside. Will go back again.

Great value and service! I was with my 5 year old niece, who wanted a milkshake immediately 🤣 The staff brought colouring books and the milkshakes very quickly. The steak was as ordered, great flavor sauce and fries too. Good spot for a nice bite! Enjoy!
